Celebrating 40 years
Established 1980 – 2020

The Craig School is an independent school that specializes in working with students with learning disabilities in grades 2 – 12. We offer an academic program aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Our program features proven, research-based learning strategies including multi-sensory approaches, assistive technology, and organizational skills. These tools allow students to build their academic foundations, increase their ability to be active and independent learners, and develop a sense of who they are as individuals and students.

We understand that there are many ideas on what is a healthy and safe way to gather outside of school; we ask you to continue to find creative ways to gather with friends and family, that supports the greater school community in our endeavor to remain open for in-person learning. We are amid a global pandemic, and we know that decisions are hard. We also know that our community can rise to the occasion. Our ability to thrive depends on each of us joining together and doing our part.



Recently, I was reminded of a blog post from years past sharing lessons learned from the classic children’s story, The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper, such as courage, strength, and a can-do attitude. The oft-recited words, “I think I can, I think I can…” to me, illustrate something even greater, self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is the belief in one’s ability to meet the challenges ahead and complete a task successfully. You may recall that as a result of an engine break down, a group of toys and dolls were left looking for a way to get up and over a mountain to reach the children on the other side.  Many engines came and went, but alas, the Little Blue Engine, not as big nor as strong as other engines, came along and offered to help. At first, the Little Blue Engine wasn’t completely sure it would be able to do something that it had never done before.



We are entering a season that values and places emphasis on gathering and coming together. We know that your community and extended family are important to you. We as educators are also making tough decisions about how to best connect with extended family and loved ones all while COVID-19 changes form and expands across the country.



At The Craig School, we understand that education is more than the culmination of knowledge, it is the creation of an equitable learning environment that brings out the best from all students, including those with language-based learning disabilities. We believe that the classroom provides space to promote opportunity and reduce inequality; it is a place for individuals of all abilities, backgrounds, and competencies to find their voice and reach their full potential.
