District Weekly Updates - May 13, 2019

From: The Chief School Administrator

May 12-18 is National Charter Schools Week. We celebrate the many achievements of charter schools as a movement, designed to meet the unique learning needs of all students. This year’s Theme is, “Charter Schools Are...”

AUL is an amazing charter school for many reasons. Over twelve years ago, several community members came together with a vision for a new learning community in the city of Perth Amboy.

AUL Fashion Show

On Friday, we had an AMAZING Fashion Show! The students did a fantastic job with the decorations, promotion, sales, program, and, of course, modeling the fashions. Special thanks to Ms. Sena, the program coordinator, Ms. Vlastaras, Mr. Ennis, and all the student volunteers.

About US

Founded in 2010 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, the Academy for Urban Leadership Charter School is one of Middlesex County's comprehensive Public Charter Schools that serves students in seventh through twelfth grades. The school operates under the terms of a charter granted by the New Jersey Department of Education.

When the school first opened in 2010, it did not have the books, tables, or classrooms necessary for students to be in an adequate learning environment. Even the principal, at the time, had to serve as a lunch aide. Since then, AUL has developed to help students receive the education they deserve. AUL has expanded by opening two new campuses, expecting to provide the opportunity for students to continue to succeed, with graduation and college admission, as two of its goals.

AUL offers an advanced academic track and AP courses.

AUL Mission: To employ an educational design and experience that merges the highest standards of academic excellence while fostering convictions and commitment to social and economic justice.
