The Caldwell-West Caldwell Public Schools is a regional public school district serving students in kindergarten through twelfth grade from two communities in Essex County, New Jersey, United States. The communities in the district are Caldwell and West Caldwell.

As of the 2011-12 school year, the district's six schools had an enrollment of 2,558 students and 203.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.58:1.[1]

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "I", the second-highest of eight groupings. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.[3]

Schools[edit]

There are four elementary schools between the two municipalities, all of which are named after American presidents. Students are districted to attend a certain one of the four elementary schools between Kindergarten and fifth grade, based on where they live. Based on the local boundaries, and where the schools lie in relation to the borders of the two communities, students from portions of both municipalities attend Lincoln, Jefferson, and Washington schools, which are all located quite close to the border between the two Caldwells. Wilson School, however, is located in the middle of southern West Caldwell near its border with Roseland and relatively far from Caldwell; so its students are exclusively from West Caldwell, in its western-most neighborhoods. All students attend the district's middle school, named for the President, and all attend the high school, which is named after the Reverend James Caldwell, the same American Revolutionary War hero that both communities are named for.
