Fair Haven Public Schools

The Fair Haven Public School District is a highly successful Pre-K through 8 district dedicated to providing our students with a broad academic foundation, nurturing their talents and abilities, and inspiring them to be lifelong learners. Comprised of the Viola L. Sickles School for grades Pre-K through 3 and the Knollwood School for grades 4-8, the Fair Haven School district has a combined student population of approximately 1000 students. Upon eighth grade graduation, Fair Haven students attend Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School for grades 9-12.

The Fair Haven School District offers students a challenging, research-based curriculum designed in accordance with the Common Core Standards. The district offers a wide array of services to meet the needs of all learners through the implementation of strong academic programs and differentiation of instruction in all grades and subject areas. The school day is enhanced through the offering of a wide variety of athletic, co and extra-curricular activities including band, chorus, Stock Market Club, Debate Club and a dynamic drama program for fourth through eighth grade students.

The talented and dedicated Fair Haven faculty, comprised of teachers, support staff and administrators, is committed to meeting the needs of the whole child while fostering an atmosphere of caring and respect. The staff is supported in their work by a strong, focused and sustained program of staff development, which serves as the foundation of our professional learning community and positively affects student learning.

The Fair Haven School District is once again recognized as “A Model District for World Language Instruction” by the NJ Department of Education. As one of the few districts in the state and the only district in Monmouth County to win this award, we are proud of our outstanding world language program and our remarkable teaching staff.

The Fair Haven community cares deeply about the education of our students as evidenced by their ongoing, annual support in a myriad of ways. All stakeholders in the town including parents, Board of Education, PTA, Education Foundation and borough administration work together on behalf of the students. With the support of these outstanding organizations, we have been able to install a wireless network in both of our schools, furnish all classrooms with Smartboards, provide our students with some of the latest technology tools, sponsor exceptional cultural enrichment programs and assist with some of our facility upgrades.

As Superintendent of the Fair Haven Schools, it is my great privilege to serve in such an outstanding community. We are extremely proud of our innovative programs, our exceptional teaching staff and parental support, and most importantly, our extraordinary children.

Mr. Nelson Ribon, Superintendent
