A Message from the Superintendent

message from Dr. Troxell


Welcome to the Phillipsburg School District’s website. I hope you find this resource to be useful and informative. Our website is the hub of district information that is relevant to all community stakeholders.


It is a distinct honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent and to have the opportunity to work with the many dedicated members of our school community.


The Phillipsburg School District has earned a reputation for academic excellence by offering robust options for students at all grade levels with boundless opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. As such, our district has a long, proud history of educating students who have later been distinguished for their achievements and contributions to both our local community and the broader society. None of this would be possible without a special combination of hardworking students, committed families, a supportive community, and dedicated faculty, board of education and staff – all enabling the Phillipsburg School District to thrive.


In closing, I would like to stress that student safety and security continue to be a high priority in PSD. We take a proactive approach by regularly evaluating our procedures and practices, working closely with local law enforcement, and making necessary changes to improve the safety and security of all staff and students.


Please take the time to explore our website to learn more about the Phillipsburg School District. I would like to thank you for your continued interest and support. I look forward to working with you to ensure our students are inspired and supported in their learning.
