“Faculty and students describe our new renovated space and additional classroom building from our “Transforming Lives at Craig” campaign as “Priceless!”
“Words cannot describe accurately what our 88 Middle and Lower School students and their teachers have experienced in the recently renovated Wilson Hall.” The building has had significant improvements since The Craig School purchased the former Wilson School in 2015.
The Craig School is a member of the NJAIS - New Jersey Association of Independent School that specializes in helping students with learning disabilities. In 2016,The Reeth Furlong Gymnasium was completed and this newest transformation of the building features five active classrooms and a STEM/Science lab.
The teaching space was a priority when designing the classrooms for our typical class size of eight students. The rooms feature standup desks, chairs that rock, yoga ball chairs and even hokki stools. The functionality also compliments and accommodates our style of learner.
The classroom design draws inspiration from colors of nature and helps our students focus and maintain a calm and nurturing environment while learning.
Although the latest features are a welcome addition, there is still work to be done. “We will continue to raise funds to improve our facilities on our campus in Mountain Lakes.” Jacks explains.
As an independent school, Craig does not receive major funding from state or federal agencies. The highly specialized educational program is supported by tuition and the gifts of parents, alumni, foundations and fundraising activities.
