From these programs, our students graduate with track records of applying the principles of sustainability to real-world problems in a variety of areas to create positive results.
All of our students, faculty, and staff engage in courses, projects, and careers that promote the professionalization of the fields and afford students experiences that evidence and translate to real-world progress.
The School District of the Chathams is a regional public school district serving students in pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade from Chatham Borough and Chatham Township in Morris County, New Jersey, United States.
The Falk School of Sustainability at Chatham University was founded in 2010 after the tremendous gift of the 388-acre Eden Hall Campus from the Eden Hall Foundation.
One of the earliest schools of its kind in the country, the Falk School is a wellspring for leadership and education to overcome current and future sustainability challenges.
The development of the Falk School of Sustainability was inspired by the work of Chatham alumna Rachel Carson '29, whose knowledge about the environment and passion to preserve it are traits that drive the mission of the school.
The academic programs in the Falk School are dedicated to producing professional sustainability leaders, and are currently admitting students at the bachelor's and master's levels with the: Master of Arts in Food Studies (MAFS), Master of Sustainability (MSUS), Bachelor of Sustainability (BSUS), and the dual-degree Master of Sustainability-Master of Business Administration (MSUS-MBA).
The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "J", the-highest of eight groupings.
District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts.
From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.
Elections were held in both municipalities in November 1986 to consider joining the disparate school systems of the two communities into a combined regional district.
This proposal was supported by the voters and since then, the two municipalities have shared a regionalized school district. Milton Avenue School was one of 11 in the state to be recognized in 2014 by the United States Department of Education's National Blue Ribbon Schools Program.
The district's high school was the 1st-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 339 schools statewide in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2014 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", using a new ranking methodology.
