HISTORY

Tower Hill School was founded in 1963 as a not-for-profit preschool for the members of the First Presbyterian Church at Red Bank  and for the members of its surrounding communities.  The school enrolled 30 children in two classes.  Today, Tower Hill School has grown to offer a cooperative preschool and a primary school with an average yearly student body of 100, a staff of 24, a full-service library, and two exciting playgrounds, as well as arguably one of the local area’s best sledding hills.  Our cooperative preschool serves children beginning at age two-and-a-half through age four, and our primary school offers a developmental pre-kindergarten program, an extended-day kindergarten plus first through third grade when enrollment warrants.  In 2013, Tower Hill School will be celebrating 50 years of educating Monmouth County’s children! Tower Hill School is a ministry of the First Presbyterian Church at Red Bank and welcomes children of all faiths and races while embracing universal Christian values, including kindness, sharing, good manners, respect for others and respect for self.  Tower Hill School is a non-profit Early Childhood Program licensed by the State of New Jersey, Department of Human Services, Bureau of Licensing, Division of Youth and Family Services.

OUR PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

At Tower Hill School, our philosophy is developmental; we aim to meet each child’s individual needs.  Small class sizes provide children with hands-on learning activities.  Independence and self-confidence are developed through age-appropriate activities in a warm and nurturing classroom setting.  We strive to make learning an adventure and to cultivate each child’s natural curiosity into lifelong enthusiasm for learning.  And because we believe that family involvement is essential in early education, parents of Tower Hill School students are encouraged to participate actively in every aspect of their child’s schooling, from working in the classroom (co-oping) to serving on committees that enhance the overall vitality of the school.
