Lindbergh Elementary School is a large suburban school serving a population of 800 students and 115 staff members. Students are represented in grades 1 to 6. The school serves as a model of 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 intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs remain foremost in the minds of the staff. Believing that all students can succeed, administration and faculty promote high standards and expectations as well as engaging active and creative minds equipped for the 21st Century. Students and faculty are engaged in a curriculum that includes technology, differentiation of instruction, and core curriculum content standards.
Many programs exist for meeting the needs of our students. We have a full Child Study Team to meet the needs of our special education students. Students needing academic assistance and extra help benefit from the Title I Program. 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/Computer Lab enhances our students’ ability to benefit from hands-on interactive lessons. Lastly, our students benefit from a wide-array of after school classes through our 21st Century Program, Homework Club, and Cultural Arts Program.
Besides involvement in curriculum and academic programming, students are introduced to many extra-curricular programs. Some examples include Student Council, Safety Patrol, Instrumental Band, and Chorus. Other activities include field trips, Book Fair, Field Day, Turkey Trot, and a variety of assemblies.
To capture the flavor of Lindbergh Elementary 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’ mission of providing students with optimum learning experiences to assist them in reaching their fullest potential and enabling them to take their place in today’s society.

A Message from the Principal
The end of the school year is quickly approaching. It is hard to believe that summer is on the way. I continue to be proud of the progress that our students have made throughout the year.
During the month of April, students and staff once again successfully participated in the PARCC test. The tests went smoothly with a minimum of problems. The entire school community anxiously awaits the results. I will continue to keep you informed.
Students participated in many exciting events this school year. Assemblies, concerts, field day, book fair, and class trips were just a few. Read Across America and the author visit were two fun events enjoyed by all. Lastly, students participated in the Student Council Walk-A-Thon, Talent Show, Vocabulary Parade, and the Torch Run sponsored by the Palisades Park Police.
