Instructor: Dr. Gordon   
Dear Parents and Community Members,
 
It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself to you as the new Tenafly Superintendent of Schools, having assumed my responsibilities as of August 1, 2017. During the last four years, I have served as Superintendent of Alpine and Northern Valley, and have gotten to know the Tenafly schools and community really well. My own vision as your Superintendent is to have students reach for soaring achievement, and I have been honored to serve as Superintendent in New Providence for nearly a decade where students rose to #1 in New Jersey Monthly, and for 10 years as Superintendent of Post Washington where with 51 Intel Semi-Finalists, Port placed in the top five of the United States.
 
I am honored to be able to serve you now as your new Superintendent of Schools and would like to take this opportunity to pledge my unwavering commitment to the high educational standards we all associate with the Tenafly school district.
 
My main goals as your new Superintendent of Schools are to:
 
·   Empower students and staff to raise the bar of the high achievement traditions of
    the Tenafly Schools
 
·   Build strong community support
 
·   Continue to expand opportunities for students to do original research, problem
    solve, think critically, and open new career pathways in our challenging society
 
·   Control costs and expand revenue sources with innovative shared services to help
    keep taxes as low as possible
 
Building strong citizenship and good decision making will also be a primary goal. With this in mind, we will host Joint Use and community meetings so that we can share your ideas and your concerns. Please watch the website for times and places throughout  the year.
 
I also encourage you to just stop by my office to talk at any time. Developing a solid and mutually respectful partnership with our community is a necessary ingredient of  the success formula that will propel us even further in the future. We have great teachers and administrators and I know that working with them will help us achieve   our goals and much more.
 
I am especially proud of our students and consider it a privilege to work with them. Please note that I will be ‘pushing the envelope’ in academics, the arts, athletics and citizenship.
 
I am looking forward to a great and rewarding year and thank you for the opportunity to be the Tenafly Superintendent of Schools.

Dr. Geoffrey Gordon
Superintendent of School
