Most of the nearly 2,600 public schools in New Jersey are operated by one of the state’s 600+ school districts. Charter schools account for 115 of the state’s public schools, which operate with more autonomy than district schools. Charter schools operate under a contract with the New Jersey Department of Education, the state’s sole authorizer, and serve as their own Local Education Agency (LEA).

"Our 6,300 students in Newark have endured a traumatic pandemic, but their results are just one more proof point of their brilliance and ability to achieve at the highest levels. Our talented and dedicated educators responded to our students’ academic and social emotional needs. We met them where they were through culturally responsive teaching and infusing tutoring right into the school day to immediately target gaps we were seeing. Most importantly, we made sure our students felt heard, loved, supported, and challenged and that their families were our partners every step of the way. Our students’ achievements show what is possible and why we believe in the power of a North Star education.”

Julie Jackson, co-CEO of Uncommon Schools, North Star Academy, Newark, New Jersey
