Craig High School
- The Craig School, established in 1980, is an independent, nonprofit school for bright young people in grades 3 through 12 who have diagnosed, language-based learning differences.
- We offer a college preparatory curriculum for children of average or above average ability with such disorders as dyslexia, auditory processing and attention deficit.
- The Craig School has two campuses: a lower school (grades 2-8) located in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey and an upper school (grades 9-12) located in nearby Boonton, New Jersey.
- The enrollment for this year is 140 students. Our mission is to work with children of average to above average ability who learn differently and to help them acquire the skills they need to enable them to learn steadily throughout their lives.
