It is my distinct honor to welcome you to the Clinton Township School District. Our district serves over 1,200 students in grades PK-8 in a supportive environment with a strong emphasis on every child fulfilling their potential and obtaining academic success. Our district consists of a PK building (Spruce Run School) that we share with the Hunterdon Educational Services Commission until 2027. We have a K-2 primary school  (Patrick McGaheran School) where we focus on the fundamentals of reading and other subjects while helping students navigate what it means to be part of a community. In grades 3-5 they attend Round Valley School. Here we further reinforce a sense of community while our students navigate becoming independent learners. Clinton Township Middle School, our newest building, houses 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students. At these grade levels, students get more choices in electives and prepare for the next step in their academic journey. 

In the past few years we have been working on our strategic plan as well as buildings goals. We are looking at aspects of communication, curriculum, whole-child learning, inclusion, and sustainability. You can find out more about our strategic plan by visiting the strategic planning website. 

Our district is located in a beautiful part of Hunterdon County and offers excellent opportunities. For those who are already in the district, you know how our outstanding staff members help support your children as individual learners.  For those new to the district, you will find a welcoming environment where we help guide children while working with families.  In CTSD, we truly are a community where volunteers and parents work with the district to provide fun and enriching opportunities. 

Please check out the individual building pages to learn more about the district and hear from our district leaders. If you have any questions, please reach out to the buildings and they will do their best to assist you. We are so excited for you to become a part of our district, and we are glad you took the time to read more about us.
