The Ramsey Public School District is a comprehensive community public school district that serves students in kindergarten through twelfth grade from Ramsey in Bergen County, New Jersey. Students from Saddle River attend the district's middle school and then have the option of attending either Ramsey High School or Northern Highlands Regional High School as part of sending/receiving relationships with the Saddle River School District and each of the respective districts.[3][4][5]

As of the 2008-09 school year, the district's five schools had an enrollment of 3,107 students and 255.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.2.[1]

Construction and district reconfiguration

On September 30, 2003, residents of Ramsey passed a referendum providing for the construction of a new Dater School, the construction of a new, six-lane track at the High School, and the renovation of the High School, Smith School, and Hubbard School. Because much more construction had to still be finished (or even started), the 2006-2007 school year has begun on September 18, 2006.

  • Ramsey High School's Track is now a six-lane, all-weather track and was completed in Fall/Winter 2004 after delays.
  • Ramsey High School will be renovating and adding classrooms. Construction was supposed to take place over the 2005-2006 school year and to be completed around July 2006, but this work was pushed back a year and is now expected to begin at the end of the 2005-2006 school year.
  • Eric S. Smith Middle School is reconfiguring and expanding its media center, cafeteria, and gymnasium, and creating new classrooms.
  • Mary A. Hubbard School will be converted into a building suitable for grades K-3, which actually is a partial return to its roots as a K-5 school. Some new rooms will be built, and others will be renovated.
  • The Wesley D. Tisdale School is not included in any construction or renovation projects.
