The Mount Olive Township School District is a comprehensive community public school district that serves nearly 5,000 students in prekindergarten through twelfth grade from Mount Olive Township, in Morris County, New Jersey, United States.

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "GH", the third highest of eight groupings.

In 2010, the district eliminated D as a passing grade for its middle- and high-schoolers. The district also instituted a rule requiring anyone who earned a D or an F in a course to retake that course.[4]
