Lindbergh Elementary School continues to serve a student population of over 650 students and 76 staff members. Students are represented in grades 2 to grade 7. The school serves as a model for the integration of ethnic and culturally diverse students, as well as creating an environment of acceptance where inclusion is a priority for all. The needs of the students which include academics, social and emotional needs remain foremost in the minds of the staff. Students and faculty are daily engaged in a curriculum that takes into consideration technology, balanced literacy, differentiation of instruction, and core curriculum content standards.
Many programs exist for meeting the needs of our students. Decisions for our special education students are made by a Child Study Team in conjunction with administration and parents. Students needing academic assistance and extra help benefit from a Title I Program. The Title I program is conducted with instruction in the child’s regular classroom. ESL classes are scheduled for those students speaking a home language other than English. The academically gifted and talented program, LEAP, services students who demonstrate a need for enrichment beyond the regular curriculum. Artistically talented children can also participate in our G & T Art program. Our Science Lab enhances our students’ ability to benefit from more hands-on interactive lessons. Our Computer Lab is state-of-the-art and continually evolving to further meet the needs of our students. Furthermore, Lindbergh has over 100 lap top computers for use in the classrooms as well as several Smart boards supplied by our participation in the Include Mathematics Grant. Lastly, students benefit from a wide-array of after school classes through our Lindbergh After 3 Program.
Besides involvement in curriculum and academic programming, students function in a school where student morale is very high. The reasons for this are many. A high level of parent involvement exists in Lindbergh School through the PTA, KPG, and staff presentations. A Student Council which adds a dimension of excitement for students has been in operation for many years. Other programs offered to our students include band, chorus, and inter-mural sports. The staff and administration welcome an environment conducive to education and children’s interests. School is fun for Lindbergh’s students.
A number of criteria are utilized for the assessment of students. Lindbergh’s students participate in formal standardized testing as well as informal assessments by staff members. Students in grades 3 and 5 participate in the Cognitive Abilities Test. Students in grade 2 participate in the Terra Nova Test to determine academic proficiencies. Grades 3 through 7 participate in the New Jersey ASK (Assessment of Skills and Knowledge).
To capture the flavor of Lindbergh School a number of words and phrases can be utilized. Caring learning environment, student advocacy, personalized education and parental support are just a few. Lindbergh always remains true to its’ philosophy of each student being provided learning activities to assist them in reaching their fullest potential.

Eagle scout Salvatore Bellomo of Boy Scouts of America Troop 379 in Palisades Park organized and produced the beautiful mural of the United States that now lies in the new wing courtyard of Lindbergh Elementary School. Assisted by other members of Troop 379 the mural was completed in one weekend. Sal's contribution will serve as a teaching aid for the younger students of Lindbergh Elementary to learn about geography and the states.
