Mission Statement

At Arthur M. Pico School Number Eight, the mission of our highly qualified staff is to provide a safe, positive learning environment where all students can learn.  We are committed to fostering the academic and social development of each child within our school so that they can ultimately become independent thinkers, life-long learners, and productive citizens within our society. This is accomplished by providing all students with a curriculum aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) and incorporating instructional “life-skills” applications and activities.
