The Ethical Community Charter School


 The Ethical Community Charter School might be for you! This is a school that encourages as much student participation as possible; they encourage the students to ask questions and form their own opinions. This school takes advantage of the arts and uses it as a movement to integrate both fun and learning into one. They do a great job at mixing community into the learning aspect of the school. Some things you ought to 
know right away? Admissions! The admission process for the 2014-2015 school year is currently open. The closing date for admissions is on January 7th, 2014. There will be a lottery held on Thursday January 16th at 7pm in the school cafeteria. The lottery is the way in which this school chooses the students for the following year, that way everyone has an equal opportunity. If you wish to apply to this school you can find the application form on their website (http://www.teccs-jc.org/).

Also, if before you apply you would prefer to pay the school a visit then no problem! The school hosts tours every Friday at 9:30 am by appointment. All you have to do is send an email to [email protected] or give them a phone call at (201)984-4151 and book your appointment.


The Ethical Community Charter School in Jersey City is a school open for children in Kindergarten to the eighth grade. The curriculum for each grade group is made up by focusing and mixing three different elements. In the curriculum the staff incorporates responsive learning, multidisciplinary core curriculum and project-based learning. This style of teaching can accomplish many goals academically within the same time. For example, while students are being taught about information in one subject that are simultaneously using and strengthening their writing skills. This is one of the main goals at the Ethical Community Center School.


As I mentioned before, the Ethical Community Charter School fully believes in teaching children not only to act responsibly and how to treat each other but what it means to have responsibility. They take it upon themselves to instill in each child the meanings and reasoning behind respect. Teachers will take classroom opportunities to create a teaching lesson; every moment counts right? And if you feel that you would like a little more of this ethics style program the Ethical Community Charter School in Jersey City also has a C.A.R.E (Contributing to the community, Achieving excellence, Respecting yourself and others, and Exhibiting self-control) program in place to take this ideal a step further.

At The Ethical Community Charter School in Jersey City they also feel strongly on child health. Because of this, the school has rid of all of their vending machines. They use the lunch program as an opportunity to teach and educate the students about healthy eating habits.

If you’re looking for a school that takes every opportunity available to them and the students to be turned into a learning experience then the Ethical Community Charter School just may be for you. It is a caring environment that places high values on respect. So feel free to visit their website or visit the school itself on any Friday. Just be sure to do it soon as the application deadlines for the next school year is coming up.

As always, Happy School Hunting!

BelovED Community Charter School – A dedicated charter school located in Jersey City; a school that thrives from their “caring school climate” as they call it. At BelovEd Community Charter School they believe in helping the students to feel cared about in their environment which helps them to care about others in return. They believe in establishing this friendly environment because it brings the students a step closer to enjoying and loving school. We all know it’s always easier to learn when we are having a good time, why not apply this to the kid’s everyday curriculum!

Beloved is a place that would be committed to your child and his or her success. They understand that once a child becomes a student it is the responsibility of the faculty at BelovED Community Charter School to lead them onto the right path; preparing them for their success in school, college and future careers. So let’s talk about some of the things that BelovEd has to offer you folks in Jersey City!

To start off with, BelovEd Community Charter School offers a longer than average school day in order to provide children with the care that they need. The day begins with breakfast (for eligible students) at 7:45 am. Following breakfast, the school day runs from 8:00am – 4:15pm.

At BelovEd, they also offer the students an opportunity to stay at school longer through their aftercare program. This program is optional for any child that is interested until the time of 5:30pm. Parents and students can choose if they want their child to attend the aftercare program and what activities they get involved with. You can choose perhaps a sport or if you or your child feels they need a little extra help they can choose to use that time for assistance through tutoring.

BelovEd Community Charter School in Jersey City is a free of cost (yay!) public school that is open to all students equally, no favoritism, no advantages. They are currently open for accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school 
year. If you are interested in applying to BelovEd you could apply in multiple ways. One way you can apply to the school is by simply applying online. The second option is to print an application and submit it to the school. If you want to move fast then an online application is your way to go. However, if you feel more comfortable with submitting the application in person by all means! Plus, it’ll give you an opportunity to see the school for yourself. The application form needed can be found on their website (http://belovedccs.org/enroll/).

The Learning Community Charter School

 

The Learning Community Charter School is an independent public school located in Jersey City. The school is just a block away from Lincoln Park for those of you who would love a nearby park to take your little ones to. The Learning Community Charter School serves to educate children between the grades Pre-K through the 8th Grade. The Pre-K classes aim to have at most 15 students in each class and classes from Kindergarten to the 8th grade aim to have about 20 students in each class. Want to pay the school a visit for yourself? Feel free to stop by on Monday December 16th for a tour at 6 and 6:30. There is no need to RSVP. There will also be a later tour date available on  Friday, January 3rd at 9:30 and 10am.

The Admission process for the learning community charter school in Jersey City is done in a lottery style fashion. Applicants must apply to the school within the deadline. The lottery determines, at random, who is accepted to the school and who is placed on the waiting list. Those on the waiting list will be contacted once an opening occurs. If no response is made then the school will move on to the next person on the list. The list of applicants is refreshed every year, re-using the lottery method. Applications for the 2014-2015 school year are now being accepted at the Learning Community Charter School now up till Friday January 3rd at 3pm.

At the Learning Community Charter School in Jersey City both breakfast and lunch are made available at the school to the students. The calendar for what meals will be made available on a daily basis is up on the schools website (www.lccsnj.org) for the parents to download if interested. There is a calendar both for the breakfast menu and for the lunch menu to lessen any confusion. As in many schools, lunch is provided at a slight cost. The student breakfast cost $1.60. The student lunch comes at a little more of a cost, $3.00. Now, if you think you would qualify to receive free or reduced lunch there is an application link available on the website. The cost of the reduced breakfast is $0.30 and the cost for the reduced lunch is $0.40, so please do take advantage of the reduced/free meal option if it is available for you.

While looking at the curriculum and classes offered at the Learning Community Charter School I was sort of taken a back when I saw the extensive list. Many of the things offered are for sure not mandatory to be provided, which is great to see. It gives me the feeling that this school truly does care to give its students an experience that they will forever appreciate. Yes, the school of course offers English Language arts, math, science, physical education and social studies. But the courses that put an extra smile on my face were visual arts, wingspan arts (which is a non-profit program that all students from 5th grade to 8th grade engage in for an hour once a week exposing them to performing, visual, media and literary arts), hip hop elements, play at poetry, digital photography and graphic design (designs the yearbook), Afro- Caribbean drumming and step it up (where students learn to step; make rhythmic patterns using their hands and feet). There are so many options here for each child that wherever they choose to go they should learn, grow and most importantly experience something new to help them feel more comfortable or “at home” in their school.


You may be overwhelmed with all of the course options I just threw at you but be prepared for one more thing; the THINK TANK after school program at the learning community charter school. The think tank after school program is offered daily from 3:15-6 pm and from 12:20-6 pm on most half days. It is set in place for both activities and homework help. There are three sessions of this program each year and they do require a fee. If you or your child is interested in attending the after school program please contact the school for more information on how the payment works. They are willing to work with families who may not be able to afford the entire payment. No child left behind right? Also, students are allowed to do a one day drop in at the after school program but also at a charge; usually $18 but again, contact the school if this does not work for you and see what they can do. It never hurts to take the chance especially with a school that is willing to help.

The Learning Community Charter School sounding good for you so far? Don’t forget the applications are due by January 3rd! Also, remember you can drop into any of the upcoming tours on Monday December 16th and Friday January 3rd. Hope it is the school for you! Happy School Searching!

Golden Door Charter School

 

A school that focuses on the achievements of each child “no exceptions, no excuses”. Well then, it is time to talk about The Golden Door Charter School! The Golden Door Charter School is a school located on 3044 Kennedy Blvd. in Jersey City. So let’s talk about a bit of what Golden Door Charter School has to offer.

At Golden Door Charter School, they strive to provide parents and students with a safe and high quality learning environment for each and every student that attends. To get an idea of the curriculum in place at Golden Door, it is important to know that the lessons at Golden door follow the guidelines of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. This is to ensure that each child in every classroom is guaranteed a well-rounded education. To go a step further, Golden Door Charter School offers their students the chance to take a course in foreign language, music and art. They also offer health and physical education to instill in the minds of our young ones the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Want to know what grabbed me when checking out the Golden Door Charter School? Simple! The fact that accessing the specific curriculum available at the Golden Door Charter School is just a click away. On their website, the Golden Door Charter School has available the curriculum overviews. It is easy to find exact curriculum your child would be placed into. The links to each curriculum is divided by subject and by class grades; so simple! So if you would like to check out the class environment your child would be placed into please do visit their website at www.goldendoorschool.org . Simply click on the previous link and then on that page go to academics and then curriculum overviews. There you will see a list of each curriculum.


Next thing you should know about Golden Door Charter School is their uniform policy. At Golden Door they are very strict with uniforms. Each child is to come to school in their uniform daily. This means your child shall attend school in their proper uniform (varies from class grades) from head to toe. If your child is out of uniform, the school will contact you so that you can bring in the proper uniform for your child.

Food time! At Golden Door they provide breakfast and lunch for each child. Some may be eligible for free or reduced fare meals depending on the income eligibility guidelines provided on the Federal income chart. If you do not think you will qualify I would like to tell you the pricing for each meal. For a student that has to pay the full fare, breakfast will cost $1.35 and lunch will cost $2.50 daily. For a reduced fare student, breakfast will cost $.30 and lunch will cost $.40 daily. Students are not required to bring their lunch money with them. The school has a FSS PositiveID system in place; which is a system where your child’s finger will be recognized to uncover their account that you the parent sets up in the way of your choosing. This way, your child will be the only one who has access to their own meals, which in my opinion is great to hear.

The Golden Door Charter School has plenty more to offer, like their aftercare program and their anti-bullying policy. From what I can see, there’s something here to love for everyone. If this is the school for you requesting an application form is just a click away! Simply visit their website (posted above) and click on the “For Parents” tab up top. Once on that page, there will be a link on the side that says Request to Attend. Once you’ve filled out that form submit it and you’re one step closer to the school that’s right for you. Easy as one, two, three! So I urge you all to take a look at their website or even set up a visit where you can get a walk-through the school and experience the Golden Door experience for yourself. See if this school is right for you and your little one. And as always, Happy School Hunting!

Soaring Heights Charter School

STUDENT: I understand as a student of Soaring Heights Charter School, I agree to the following:

1.)   I will come to school ready to learn.
2.) I will have each day’s homework completed and ready to hand in.
3.) I will work to reach the highest expectations.
4.) I will respect my teachers.
Parents will acknowledge this contract by signing and returning it to school.

I wanted to begin this post with this agreement because I believe it shows the schools character. It shows what the Soaring Heights Charter School deems as important and so will be in turn be implementing in their students all throughout kindergarten to eighth grade. It’s a pretty smart way to start the school year if you ask me. It shows the child, and the parents, what lies ahead of them as well as teaches the child that they themselves are beginning to be more and more responsible for their own actions.

Keeping with the theme, the Soaring Heights Charter School in Jersey City has some strict policies on school arrival and departure time. The school allows for children to arrive at the school at 7:55 a.m. at the earliest and to stay afterschool up until 2:45 pm the latest, unless they will be participating in an after school program. The time is so strictly set because if a child is to arrive before the arrival time (which is earlier than the regular school day for those who would like to enjoy breakfast) they would be there unsupervised. The same goes for a child that stays in the school past the departure time.

In regards to school breakfast, as I stated above, the Soaring Heights Charter school offers students breakfast starting at 7:55am. Now, both school breakfast and lunch is offered and available to students, however it is not free. Parents are required to pay for school meals on a weekly basis. Parents are to send either a check or cash along with a completed menu to the school by Friday for your child to receive lunch. I am not sure on the schools policy on reduced or free lunch but as I always say, it doesn’t hurt to ask. So if you are interested or feel your child should be eligible for free lunch ask the school administration. They should lead you in the right direction.

At the Soaring Heights Charter School a school uniform is required. Students are required to wear khaki, black or navy pants, skirts or jumpers. They are to wear plain solid white shirts or sweaters. The shirts could also be of the solid colors light blue or navy. The following clothing items are not allowed:

  • Leggings, jeggings, skinny fit pants, jeans or tight fitting pants
  • Hats
  • Open toed shoes
  • Baggy clothing items

There is also a gym uniform requirement at the Soaring heights. Students are required to wear either sweatpants or shots with sweatshirts that are all black without any stripes or writing with the exception of the school logo. The shirt is required to have the school logo. The sneakers must have white soles and say “no skid marks” on the sole; I am not too sure on the reasoning for this, so be sure to ask if you have any questions.

Interested in applying to the Soaring Heights Charter School? Well the school is currently accepting applications. Simply visit their website at www.soaringheightscharterschool.com/application.php and click on the link to download the pdf version of the application. Print it, fill it out and mail the application form to the following address; Soaring Heights Charter School 1 Romar Avenue Jersey City, New Jersey 07305. The annual lottery will be held soon, on January 13th at 6:00pm so be sure to get those application forms in!

If you would like a follow-up on if the school received your application form, give the school a call. Remember to give the mail man enough time for delivery. And as always, happy school hunting!

Jersey City Community Charter School

Looking for a school whose goal it is to ensure the cognitive development of students? A school with the drive and the staff that is dedicated to the development of themselves in order to properly educate each child in attending? Well then, it is time to talk about Jersey City Community Charter School!


At Jersey City Community Charter School they make it their business to provide an innovative learning experience for the students. They believe on promoting “self-directed, life learning skills and facilitate the students ability to make responsible decisions” as stated on their website. They are well equipped to deliver such a promise by Academic and non-academic goals that the school has in place. These goals are easily accessible in just a click away (http://jcccsonline.org/goals-objectives/). Take a good look at what these goals are and how they are each divided. If you’re one for clear and concise schedules and objectives then this page in particular should spark your interest, so give it a try!

At Jersey City Community Charter School they believe firmly in eliminating any sort of outside distraction in the school environment. Because of this, they have a very strict policy concerning toys and electronics. The Jersey City Community Charter School is very adamant about keeping any toys and electronic games out of the school environment and so they have a confiscating rule towards it. If any child brings any of these items to the school they will be confiscated and will not be returned. If this is something that concerns you, you may want to talk to administration. If not, then perhaps like many parents this will just make you happy to hear that the Jersey City Community Charter School is concentrating on keeping your child focused on the important task at hand.
What about food you ask? You guessed it, lunch and breakfast are provided by the school for the children. The lunch application forms get distributed on the first day of school to be sent home with the child and to be filled out as soon as possible. Children who are not going to be eating the school lunch are still required to submit a lunch application form just so that they are on file. Once you submit the lunch application form you will be notified as to how much, if at all, the lunch will be costing you. So be sure to keep an eye out for that form and again fill it out as soon as possible.

Lastly, if the idea of no electronic entertainment might have scared you a little bit, I’m here to tell you that what has been taken away, is up for with the different classes and activities offered by Jersey City Community Charter School. The school offers up many interesting classes such as classes with scientists, teachers, animators, artists and programmers who are passionate about what they do. In classes such as Sponge Lab where the students are introduced to technology and interactive media, or classes like OpenClass, where teachers use a learning environment to help bring social learning and interactive experiences as a learning mechanism. Best of all these classes are open to everyone and free of charge. The school also hosts events throughout the year to get everyone together such as movie nights. How great is that!

Now if anything here has sparked your interests I strongly encourage you to give the school a call and see if you can plan a tour date for yourself and even your little one. I’m sure it’ll be an easy bit of information to get a hold of, being how impressed the Jersey City Community Charter School has left me by the skills they possess in clear and concise organization. And as always, Happy School hunting Everyone!

Education Fair Shows Possibilities for Families

Education Fair In Jersey City by JCFamilies

Now that we’ve officially entered October, we call breathe a sigh of relief that the school started without a hitch. (At least not one that shut us down.) Routines set, at least for now, we can reflect on that pile of papers, folders, and pamphlets we collected at the JCFamilies Education Fair. (SO GLAD I didn’t have to do all that research on my own.) But first – the magic.

Education Fair In Jersey City I hadn’t seen a magician since I was a kid, so when I saw the line up, I invited the neighbor’s kid to join me and my two. (He likes witches; I figured this was up his alley. It was.) To say that they (boys, ages 3 & 4) were mesmerized would be inaccurate; mesmerized is quiet. In fact, my crew was so excited that their little bodies looked like popping corn or tiny fireworks. None of the kids could sit still. Their animated sense of delight put me into that rare mental space that boasts “See? This is why people have kids.” Suffice it to say that hiring a magician for an event, or better – sending kids to magic school – is now on my list.

Education Fair In Jersey City I did know before I arrived that lots of schools (public, private, charter, and early learning centers) would be represented, but I was shocked to see how many educational services and resources were also in attendance. We talked to summer camp directors who showed us photos of happy swimmers and informed us about busing options. We galloped on imaginary horses with the chess school and shook hands with math and science program representatives. We high-fived a penguin and took a selfie with Pete the Cat. My entire crew had a turn with the lacrosse sticks (I’m sure there’s a term for what they were doing) and they got Halloween stickers from Hudson County Community College. I took home folders about savings accounts for kids. I was glad I brought a bag – I picked up lots of information from of different people.

Education Fair In Jersey City Of course we had to go to the playground before we left (even though one or more of my crew was getting nap-time cranky) because Hamilton Park is awesome, so I sat on the rock wall while the kids ran around. I watched the fair buzz with, I dunno, thousands? of families strolling from table to table, casually collecting options for their kids who are lucky enough to live in what must be the greatest city in the whole of America. It was amazing to watch.

Education Fair In Jersey City And then I saw the JCFamilies table, where the team was handing out paper copies of their fresh-off-the-press Education Guide. I couldn’t hold back the hug – my kids were happy. I also felt empowered. The Education Fair was a real awakening to the exceptional amount of options that exist for our kids so close to home. Options that never would have occurred to me. Like lacrosse. Magic.

5 tips on How to evaluate a school

Google it. 

pre school in Jersey City day care in Jersey City

We live in the age of the internet. Any time you sign your kid up for anything all, you should be first looking on the internet for clues about the school’s reputation. Do they have a website? If they do, check it out – what’s on it? Does it look professional?

If the website is the window to the program, how are they presenting themselves to the world? If they don’t have a website, does that tell you something about the way they choose to communicate? Take it all in.

Ask the moms. 

pre school inJersey City day care in Jersey City

Being in contact with other moms is essential to our survival as a species – and I mean that both in the jokey way but also in an I’m-not- kidding-at- all way. None of us can do this on our own. Ask other moms (online or in person) what experiences they’ve had at this school, or that daycare, or with program you’re interested in. Ask for suggestions.

Pass by the school.

Walk, bike, or drive by the school. Do this in the morning, when people are going in.

Do it during the day, do it at pick up time. Notice what’s happening. Is there chaos? Trust your gut – do these adults look like they know what they’re doing? Would you be comfortable letting your kid loose here?

Tour the school.

Find a time when you can go to the school to tour it. When you’re touring, observe not just with your eyes, but with your instincts too. Hone in – remember your gut. Visually you’re looking for cleanliness, happy and engaged children, organization of toys and equipment, multiple adults paying attention to and/or moving around with children.

BE FLEXIBLE.

Allow yourself to be impressed or disappointed – especially if your expectation was to be impressed or disappointed. Remember that no school has rainbows shooting out of its roof, so don’t set your expectations impossibly high. On the flip side, if you feel uncomfortable with a place (even if everyone else says its wonderful) don’t choose that place. And if you do choose the wrong place, allow yourself the flexibility to switch.

Camp begins at 8:30 each morning and ends at 3:30 each afternoon, with extended care available until 6:00pm for an additional charge.  At $1,000 for both weeks or $550 for a single week, and $20 per day and only $80 for the full week for aftercare, this summer camp is the most exciting, action-packed and cost-effective summer child care available.

Hudson Montessori 7th Annual Social Studies Fair Presents “The Olympics”

Hudson Montessori’s 7th Annual Social Studies Fair will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2016. The fair showcases our children’s academic journey with this year’s theme, The Olympics. The central attraction, the Exhibit Hall, is the fruition of a year-long study that was integrated into many aspects of the school’s curriculum. What makes “The Olympics” a unique topic is that the children have not only looked at the Olympics as a series of sporting events, but have delved into its history, present and future. They have studied what it takes to become an Olympic athlete and what it takes to become a host country. All of this culminates in the exhibits where they have applied their knowledge and skill to develop their displays. The event also includes a carnival for more than 500 people to be held in Zeppelin Hall, the large event space adjacent to the school, which promises fun for all ages. We will feature food from local Jersey City vendors, and activities that include bounce houses, craft tables, face painting, photo booths, and a mix of sport stations that celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics.
