A Message From The Music Supervisor:
Congratulations to all of our music students and directors on a very successful 2015 Hershey Park Music Festival! Over 1000 students across 20 music ensembles performed their music literature for adjudicators, peers, and many Crossroads' families who made the trip out to Hershey. Our students performed extremely well and truly made the South Brunswick School District proud!

The South Brunswick School District has been designated as one of the “2015 Best Communities for Music Education” by the NAMM Foundation!

Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) affirms school districts that have demonstrated exceptional efforts toward maintaining music education as part of the schools' core curriculum. The Best Communities for Music Education survey acknowledges schools and districts across the United States for their commitment to and support of music education in schools. Entries were verified with school officials and reviewed by The Institute for Educational Research.

Nearly 2,000 districts and schools participated in the survey this year. 388 school districts were selected for this designation nationally, 27 of which were school districts in NJ.

The BCME survey requests information that reveals statistical and factual information about music education and related opportunities for students to learn music. The survey focused on the following topics: music student enrollment, music teacher staffing, teacher collaboration, program offerings, facilities, support from administration, standards based learning and curriculum, professional development, community partnerships, technology, music funding, etc.
