Paramus Public Schools have created the environment known as my second home since i was six years old. The school systems are efficient and keep every year's class going on to do great things. All teachers care about their students and look out for them, making sure they are working to the best of their abilities. The schools are constantly updating alongside the fast moving generations that flow in and out of the doors.

I feel safe. I get educated. I succeed. I love Paramus Public Schools!

We have been through elementary and middle school in Paramus and have found the district to have amazingly engaged and effective teachers. We have received incredible academic support for both of my daughters, one who has needed extra academic and developmental support and one who is academically advanced. Each was encouraged, challenged and supported in their growth.

I can't speak highly enough about the academics and the administration.
I was born and raised in Paramus and I believe I attended the best public school system in Bergen County. Throughout my years at the Paramus schools I was able to attend many events and experience many opportunities that continue to help me now. Not only do the Paramus Schools offer great academics, there are wonderful extracurriculars/ sports, and after school transportation offered to the students involved in activities. The school is very quick to adapt to new technological advancements and I am proud to go to a school that minimizes paper usage by offering students chrome books. There is a great student to teacher ratio in classrooms and there shouldn’t be a problem for new students to adjust because Paramus is a great coomunity and makes their schools a great place to learn and to feel comfortable.
