The mission of Parsippany-Troy Hills School District is to provide effective instruction in all program areas, to develop the learning potential of all students in the district, to build skills for a lifetime of learning, and to develop a feeling of self-worth and confidence that will allow students to become productive members of society.

To accomplish this mission, Parsippany-Troy Hills School District is committed to a system which recognizes principals, supervisors and directors as instructional leaders and empowers members of the teaching staff to become partners in the development of curriculum and refinement of instructional strategies. The Board of Education also seeks the involvement of parents and members of the community as participants in a partnership to promote quality education. The result of this collaboration is to produce effective learners who can cope with the demands of an ever-changing society.

Furthermore, we are dedicated to achieving a spirit of humaneness as students involve themselves in school activities as well as contributing to the well being of the community. To achieve these ends, the Board of Education also supports a continuous program of staff development for all employees as means of developing the most effective curriculum and instruction for all our students.
