• s Welcome to Scholars Academy!  

    Entering my 10th year as the Principal of Scholars Academy, I am absolutely honored and thrilled to be part of such a caring, dedicated, and family-like school community! This is my 19th year in the Orange school district and my 13th year as a Principal.  My educational background includes a dual Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, a Masters degree in Education with a focus on Educational Technology, and a Gifted Education Graduate Certificate. My background includes teaching at the Kindergarten to 8th-grade levels, being a Master Teacher for Language Arts, and an Academic Coach for Math and Language Arts.

    Now, I have the wonderful opportunity to be part of a dynamic learning community of students, parents, and staff in our Preschool Program, Gifted and Talented Education services, and Special Education Services.  Our school is specially designed to fit the needs of our students.  Our students are our pride and joy!  

    Please review every aspect of the website for resources and support.  Information is updated so check back often!  Feel free to follow me on Twitter: Principal_KM or simply click the Twitter Bird below! We use #GoScholarsNJ to share what we are doing in our school community.  Also, enrolled families, please sign up for ClassDojo to follow the great learning opportunities that your children are exploring!
