 "Only the Best is Done Here!"



Mrs. Renee Richardson, Administrator

A Message From Mrs. Richardson

It is my pleasure to join you as the educational leader of Fresh Start Academy Middle School.  I have served as an Assistant Principal for eight years in the East Orange School District. Prior to that I served as a teacher for ten years at Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. Academy in various grade levels.  Much of what I learned during my tenure as a teacher has informed my practices and my philosophy as an administrator.
 

My philosophy is that we must prepare students to be competent and capable members of society who are ready to compete in both local and global arenas.  We must work together to ensure that all learners not only aspire to, but also achieve and surpass the ideal of the American Dream.   I truly believe all students can learn when given the proper resources, opportunity, and when surrounded by supportive educators, family and community.


We encourage parental input and welcome an active partnership to develop and implement programs and activities to bring families together.  Studies show that parental involvement in children’s education is vitally important and necessary.
 

The School Leadership Team (SLT) and the School Improvement Panel (SCIP) comprised of teachers, parents, students and administration provides the leadership necessary to ensure our mission, vision, building wide goals, data analysis focus, academic successes/challenges reviews, and the overall management of the school climate and culture is focused on the best interest of our students.  I invite you to take an active role in our school community.        
 
“Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.”  -Thomas Edison
