The School District of the Chathams consists of six schools and nearly four thousand students. Initially two separate districts, Chatham township and Chatham Borough, it was consolidated in the mid-eighties to ensure students needs were met at every level. Primary schools include Milton Avenue School, Southern Boulevard School, and Washington Avenue School, all of which serve kindergarten through third grade students. Lafayette School serves fourth and fifth graders. Chatham Middle School serves sixth through eighth graders, and Chatham High School serves ninth through twelfth graders. As a welcoming activity, each school designates a PTO member to help take care of new families moving into the district. It's a nice touch that's only available with smaller districts like this one, and it can be helpful when you're not sure where to turn after purchasing Chatham real estate. With a variety of extracurricular activities at every level, high test scores, and the incorporation of lots of exciting technology, this is one district that serves its students well.

Long Hill

The Long Hill Township School District serves one thousand eighty-six students in our three schools.

The state requires this to be done by school, not by district; hence each school has its own report card.
