Educational Mission & Philosophy

Educational Mission & Philosophy


District Mission
It is the mission of the Paterson Public School District to prepare each student to be successful in the institution of higher education of their choosing and in their chosen career.
School Mission
To graduate 100% of our students equipped to become self-motivated, critical thinkers with the ability and skills to graduate from high school and compete in a global society.

"Our students will become
lifelong learners and productive members of our society"

In order to establish a safe and nurturing school climate, the administrators, teachers, and staff of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Educational Complex will be concerned with each child as an individual. We will help your child feel good about him/herself by providing them with developmentally appropriate tasks so that he/she will succeed. We are concerned with the total development of each student and, therefore, will provide activities which foster self-direction, self-motivation and self-evaluation.
