Good day,

We are private school with almost 40 years experience in the process of converting to REACH Charter School of Clifton for 2016-2017. If selected, we would work with you throughout the application process. Next year you would serve on the board, if our application is approved. Below is a brief summary of our application:

Over half of our diverse student body resides in Clifton and Passaic with one-third qualifying for free/reduced lunch. Last year our school scored in the 89th percentile on a national standardized test. We find that many local families are unable to pay our already low tuition.
