LVMS House Switch
Currently the Long Valley Middle School organizes the incoming 6th grade into one of three houses. The house system takes a large number of students and breaks them into smaller communities which allows for a more personalized academic experience, however, Long Valley Middle School does not mix up the houses each year. The students are kept in the same house with the same kids for all three years of middle school. This system needs to be changed in order to foster all of the social skills such as independence, interpersonal skills, problem solving skills, conflict resolution skills, and survival skills that are crucial to the social and emotional development and well being of our children. The current system is not benefiting our children or adequately preparing them for high school. Please sign to encourage the Washington Township Board of Education, Superintendent Mohre, and Principal Ippolito to revamp the current house system in order to provide the best possible middle school experience for our children.
