Welcome to Mountain Lakes

Welcome to one of the best school districts in the state of New Jersey! The Mountain Lakes Public School District is home to 1,700 students in four schools. We have a strong tradition of academic excellence that flourishes in our caring, supportive community. Our students lead the state in academic achievement, artistic accomplishments and service to others. Our district is proud to have 150 students from over 100 districts around the state in our Lake Drive Program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. In addition to those students in the Lake Drive building, students in this program are also included in our three other district schools. We hope that you will enjoy your visit to our website, and through your visit, you will come to learn why LAKER PRIDE lives here.

  • Completed Water Test Results

    Please be advised the water testing program for the presence of lead in drinking water has been completed in all four of our school buildings. The water sampling procedure was carried out by the Mountain Lakes Water Department in accordance with EPA guidelines and under the direction of the Mountain Lakes Health Department and Borough Engineer.

    All drinking fountains, water coolers, ice makers, and sinks used for food preparation, health care, staff break rooms, and school offices were sampled. The water samples were taken to a State Certified Laboratory for analysis using EPA guidelines and standards. The results of the water testing program indicate that all water samples taken meet the safe standard established by the EPA.

    Please click here for the actual certified laboratory reports which include the results of all water test samples.
