 A message from the Interim Superintendent/Principal

Welcome to the Fairfield Township School District, a great place to learn, teach and work. Fairfield Township’s motto which is “Pursuing Excellent” is rooted in the belief that every child has the potential to be a high performing learner. Every day, administrators, faculty members, students and family members put this belief into action. It begins with a heartfelt response and the anticipation that “Excellence” must be “Expected” to propel all students to realize their goals and dreams.

Fairfield Township’s strengths are many. As a PreK-8 district, Fairfield is small enough that you can get to know the people who take care of and educate your children, and large enough to provide programs and services that allow students to thrive and grow. Those programs and services range from free Pre-School, full-day kindergarten After-School, Summer-School, “Toe By Toe, and IXL programs to Art, Music, Physical Education, Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology, and World Language classes. These programs and classes combine to provide our students with the important academic and life skills to not only achieve individual success but also to contribute to the success of our society.

We invite you to browse our Web site and learn more about the Fairfield Township School District. In Fairfield Township, you’ll find a community dedicated to the goal of high achievement for all students by meeting each child’s learning needs. We strive to base every decision on the simple question, “What is best for our students?” in terms of preparing all students to be lifelong learners who have the knowledge and skills to adapt to an evolving 21st century workplace and world

On Behalf of our energetic and committed Board of Education to our outstanding students, parents and staff, you are invited to contact us to learn benefits of the Fairfield Township advantage.

Warmest Regards,

Dr. James J. Ruffin Jr.

Interim Superintendent/Principal
