MORRISTOWN, NJ - Snowstorms, sub-zero temperatures, traffic delays, and the fact that there are only 24 hours in a day prompted The Red Oaks School of Morristown, to hire a bus to transport its Maplewood and South Orange students to school.
“We see it as a way to support this wonderful group of families who are so important to our community,” says Head of School Marilyn Stewart. “There are so many other activities they take part in at Red Oaks, it’s almost like we’ve decided to share the driving.”
Established in 1965, The Red Oaks School, a school serving children pre-k through 8th grade, draws students from throughout Northern and Central New Jersey, providing a rich “culturally diverse environment in which students develop a love of learning, a strong social conscience, and a spirit of discovery as they pursue their full academic and personal potential.”
