WASHINGTON DC - Carl H. Kumpf Middle School was honored in Washington, D. C. this past week as being one of only a hundred and sixteen middle schools nationwide recognized as a “School to Watch.”   Kumpf was selected by state leaders for its academic excellence, its responsiveness to the needs and interests of young adolescents, and its commitment to helping all students achieve at high levels. Dr. Deborah Kasak, Forum Executive Director states, "These Schools to Watch are indeed special; they make education so exciting that students and teachers don't want to miss a day. These schools have proven that it is possible to overcome barriers to achieving excellence, and any middle-grades school in any state can truly learn from their examples."

Mrs. Feeley and Mrs. Cloutier were selected to meet with Congressman Lance at Capitol Hill, where they had the opportunity to discuss educational practices and its effects in NJ.
