The Maywood Public Schools are a comprehensive community public school district that serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade from the Borough of Maywood, in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States.

As of the 2014-15 school year, the district and its two schools had an enrollment of 1,299 students and 69.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 18.8:1.[1]

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "FG", the fourth-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]

After graduating from Maywood Avenue School, approximately 250 students in public school for ninth through twelfth grades attend Hackensack High School in Hackensack, as part of a sending/receiving relationship with the Hackensack Public Schools, together with students from Rochelle Park and South Hackensack. In the wake of rising tuition costs assessed by the Hackensack district, the district has considered a plan under which the relationship with Hackensack would be severed and a new sending relationship would be established in which students would attend Paramus High School.[4][5] Students may also apply to attend the Bergen County Technical Schools.

Awards and recognition[edit]

For the 1996-97 school year, Memorial School was formally designated as a National Blue Ribbon School, the highest honor that an American school can achieve.[6]

The school district has sent its students to Hackensack High School for decades, but borough school officials say they can no longer afford Hackensack's growing per student tuition costs, and annual tuition rate adjustments....
