Children are the focus of the East Brunswick Public Schools. Our chief goal is to help each child in the East Brunswick Public Schools develop to his or her fullest potential. Each individual is different and therefore our efforts must be directed toward identifying and satisfying individual needs. Accordingly, we encourage diversity and flexibility in our programs.
