Accredited by the Middles States Commission on Elementary Schools, St. Bart's has approximately 230 students and is a thriving education institution dedicated to academic excellence in a value-forming environment. The school is under the direction of the Religious Teachers Filippini based in Morristown, NJ. The Filippini order is dedicated to the ministry of education of youth and developing our children to become the leaders of tomorrow.
