The state of NJ has ranked their elementary and middle schools. Out of over 2000 elementary and middle schools, Bixby School was ranked number 43, qualifying it in the TOP 50 in the State of New Jersey. Criteria used included year-to-year improvement on annual PARCC tests, with emphasis and focus on key groups such as English Language Learners and Economically Disadvantaged Students. Teacher, administrators and Bogota Board of Education Members are proud of this accomplishment as it elevates the entire Bogota School Community being recognized for educational excellence. This accomplishment is a credit to our outstanding teachers, administrators and students.
With our expanding Pre-K program Bixby School designed and build a new state of the art classroom. This classroom was equipped with new furniture, a set of chromebooks, a 70" Smart Panel, new flooring, LED lighting and much more. The students and staff are enjoying their new classroom to enhance learning.
Meet Austin (4th Grader) who replaced Mr. Englese as “Principal for a Day” at Bixby School. Austin had a very busy day performing all his duties as principal. He started his morning off by signing papers and checking the attendance of the staff and students while drinking his Dunkin Donuts hot chocolate, which was waiting for him on his desk. His day continued with visiting each classroom, giving out birthday cards and pencils to those students celebrating a birthday that day followed by some “teacher observations”. He called a meeting with “his staff” during lunch in the conference room to discuss some of his new ideas as principal. We hope to continue this tradition at Bixby School for years to come.
