Montvale is a charming child-centered community of approximately 8,000 residents nestled away in picturesque northern Bergen County, NJ. The Montvale School District is made up of two schools serving students in grades PreK-4 at Memorial Elementary School and grades 5-8 at Fieldstone Middle School. Our community is proud of our hard working students, dedicated faculty and staff, innovative administrative team, caring and involved parents, and supportive Board of Education.

The Montvale School District creates an environment that is academically challenging and developmentally responsive to the needs of our students. Our students are challenged to develop 21st Century skills and an intellectual curiosity and creativity in all disciplines. We offer a wide range of programs and services which augment our academic curriculum. We want our students to move on from Montvale with a commitment of service to others and a desire to assume leadership roles in an ever-changing world. It is our hope that our students use their time, talents, and treasures for the greater good of the environment, economy, and global society. From Montvale, our students attend top-rated Pascack Hills High School.
