Expansion and Building News

"Transforming Lives at Craig"

The additional building renovations and expansion of programs at
The Craig School - Mountain Lakes Campus ( grades 2-8) is continuing and on schedule.
We have begun the third phase of our expansion with the development of the new

Reading Classrooms and Orton Teaching Rooms

Faculty and students describe our new renovated spaces and additional classroom building from our “Transforming Lives at Craig” campaign as “Priceless!”


REETH - FURLONG GYMNASIUM

Phase One - Completed Fall 2016

In 2016,The Reeth- Furlong Gymnasium was completed.
The Reeth Furlong story is an example of how education can become a personal story more than standardized tests and curriculum. Our renovated gym provides our students and staff a first rate facility.

Phase 2 - Completed Summer 2017

This transformation of the 3rd floor of the Wilson Building features five classrooms and a STEM/Science lab.
The teaching space is designed specifically for our typical class size of eight students. The rooms feature standup desks, chairs that rock, yoga ball chairs, and even Hokki stools. The functionality compliments and accommodates our style of learner.
The classroom design draws inspiration from colors of nature and helps our students focus and maintain a calm being while our environment assists learning.


READING CLASSROOMS AND ORTON TEACHING ROOMS

Phase 3 - To be Completed Summer 2019

Our Orton Gillingham Program is a hallmark of The Craig School and we are very excited for the additional space and access to tools to help students unlock their reading and learning potential. Seven Orton Gillingham teaching rooms are being designed and are described as “bright, airy and spacious”.
There will be three additional classrooms focused primarily on reading instruction and social studies.

Enhancing our Social Studies and Science Curriculum, these new classrooms will be closer to the outdoor spaces we have created for science. Students are growing vegetables and learning about food production, sustainability, seasonality and life cycles.


“We will continue to raise funds to improve our facilities on our campus in Mountain Lakes.”
Head of School, Tad Jacks explains.
As an independent school, Craig does not receive major funding from state or federal agencies. The highly specialized educational program is supported by tuition and the gifts of parents, alumni, foundations and fundraising activities.
