Welcome to Monongahela Middle School

Monongahela Middle School is a comprehensive middle school designed to meet the needs of its diverse student body of over 640 students. Originally built in 1964, MMS has been renovated and expanded in 1967, 2001, and 2003 in order to update its facilities.

Monongahela Middle School is proud of its rich heritage. Even its name reflects its history. Chief Monongahela was a revered chief of a mighty tribe of the Susquehanna Indians. Monongahela was the name of one of the first schools to operate in Deptford. Also, the Monongahela Brook ran through the area near our school. The school and its students have flourished, echoing Monongahela’s rich historical background.

Letter for Class of 2020-2021

January 12, 2017

Dear Parents,

The following is vital information regarding NJ State Graduation Assessment Requirements:

Students graduating as members of the classes of 2017 through 2019 can meet graduation assessment requirements through a variety of ways, including:

  1. Achieving Passing Scores on certain PARCC ASSESSMENTS
  2. Achieving certain scores on alternative assessments such as the SAT, ACT, ASVAB, PSAT, Accuplacer, or
  3. The submission by the district of a student portfolio through the portfolio appeals process.

There are some significant changes starting with our current freshmen, the class of 2020. The class of 2020 can demonstrate graduation assessment proficiency through the same alternative means as those in the classes of 2017-2019, provided that students in the class of 2020 take ALL PARCC assessments associated with the high school level courses for which they are enrolled. If students/families for the class of 2020 plan on refusing to take the PARCC assessment, they will not be able to utilize alternative assessments to meet the high school graduation assessment requirement. The students that refuse will have to rely on passing one of the PARCC assessments in ELA and Math to earn their high school diploma.

For the class of 2021(current 8th graders), students must pass the PARCC Algebra I and PARCC ELA 10 Assessments to receive their High School Diploma. Failure to do so would result in students having to demonstrate assessment proficiency by meeting the criteria of the portfolio appeals process. The portfolio appeals process can only be utilized if students have taken all PARCC assessments for which they have been enrolled during their high school career. Again, students in the class of 2021 must pass PARCC Algebra I and PARCC ELA 10. No other testing alternatives (e.g. SAT, ACT, PSAT, ASVAB) can be utilized except for the portfolio appeals process.

Please visit the high school website and click on the link under school announcements titled “State Testing Requirements for Graduation” for a complete breakdown of scores and requirements needed for each graduating class.

We are looking forward to all students participating and achieving high success with state testing!
