    QUITE AN HONOR – New Brunswick Public Schools’ bilingual educator Melissa Vega, who is based in New Brunswick Middle School, has been named the 2021-2022 Middlesex County Teacher of the Year by the New Jersey Department of Education. Vega, who has been a member of district faculty for 17 years, holds a master’s in curriculum and instruction, with a specialization in bilingual/bicultural education.

    “This recognition is a tribute to the level of education our district provides to its bilingual learners,” Vega says. “What’s most rewarding for me, as an educator, is seeing our students work hard, steadily improve their English language skills, and ultimately thrive in whatever they choose to do.”

    Vega is the second New Brunswick Public Schools educator to earn this county-level honor in the past three years. For 2019-2020, elementary health and physical education instructor Jen Olawski was named the Middlesex County Teacher of the Year.

  • THE BIG KIDS ARE BACK!

    Posted by Dorenia Villalona on 4/19/2021

    THE BIG KIDS ARE BACK! – For the first time in 13 months, the students at New Brunswick High School, New Brunswick Health Sciences Technology High School, New Brunswick P-TECH, and New Brunswick Middle School have returned to their classrooms. A few things may have changed since March 2020, including everyone wearing masks and the regular use of clear, plastic barriers … but the most important thing is that in-person learning once again is underway.

    For the first time in 13 months, students at all K-5 and K-8 public schools in New Brunswick have returned to their classrooms. A few things may have changed since March 2020, including everyone wearing masks and the regular use of clear, plastic barriers … but the most important thing is that in-person learning is once again underway.
