District Information
The Fort Lee Public Schools serve the residents of Fort Lee Borough in Bergen County, New Jersey. The Borough, situated on the Hudson River, is bisected by the New Jersey approaches to the George Washington Bridge, which carries traffic across upper Manhattan. Fort Lee Borough encompasses approximately 2.6 square miles and is considered a suburban community.

The Fort Lee Public Schools are committed to:

  • providing challenging instruction for each student, differentiated to address his/her intellectual, social and emotional needs;
  • following best instructional practices that engage all students in relevant learning activities; and
  • developing students who are prepared to be “First in the World” in global competition.

In addition, the Fort Lee Public Schools are continuously working to achieve our district vision as well as toward achieving the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards with fiscal responsibility. As a result, Fort Lee High School was ranked 72nd in the State of New Jersey, according to New Jersey Monthly magazine's annual report in 2010.

To fulfill our belief that classroom instruction is the most important element of the education of a child, teachers in the Fort Lee Public Schools are involved in extensive and rigorous professional development. Our teachers strive to improve their skills through attendance at district led courses in Language Arts, Brain Based Learning, and Multiple Intelligences to name a few. Teachers also attend local colleges and universities to pursue higher learning in their fields of instruction.

We are committed to continuous professional development. Professional development is the key to improving instruction. Our teachers work together in teams to share their talents and skills with one another. We see this so effectively implemented in our mentoring program, but we also see it in lesson study groups, curriculum mapping teams and grade level or department teams. Our teachers are sharing their collective experience to develop an instructional model based on best practices.

Quality schools need committed parents. Our active PTA’s and other parent groups are valued for the extra support they provide to our students and our schools. We look forward to having you join in the ongoing efforts to keep the Fort Lee Public Schools at the forefront of education.

We are very proud to announce that Fort Lee High School fared very well, as it was ranked as seventh best in the state in our district factor group and one of only nine Bergen County high schools to rank in the top ten in their demographic groups. Looking at Bergen County overall, only three school districts ranked higher in their demographic group that Fort Lee High School

Congratulations to our staff, students, and parents for this terrific recognition!
