Character Education Information

Robert R. Lazar Middle School is a

New Jersey and National School of Character

National School of CharacterNew Jersey School of Character


Lazar continues to create, update, and fine-tune its award winning character education advisory curriculum in order to meet the ever-changing needs and trends of our school community.

Overall, the hopes of the staff at Lazar is to create an atmosphere of respect, tolerance, and appreciation of differences through team building activities, group discussions, a focus on core values, and leadership roles. Staff and students meet weekly in small groups.  The main focus of the Lazar Middle School advisory program this year will be on introducing the five core values to students and faculty and infusing them into everything we do as a school community here at Lazar. They should be present and systemic, from advisory sessions to classwork, projects, and field trips, to our everyday interactions with each other whether it be between students, staff and students, or staff members.

Five Core Values






The 6th grade creates bonds and friendships as students enter Lazar Middle School from five different elementary schools through our advisory program. 

The 7th and 8th grade have the opportunity to transition into leadership roles in our school community through our leadership program. These groups encourage the students to be leaders through activities such as leading team building activities for 6th grade groups, school spirit activities and beautification projects, and peer mentoring.

Our 8th grade Service Learning component consist of student-centered projects, activities, and reflections to help those in need. Past projects have included fund-raising for The Freedom Alliance, St. Jude’s Hospital, collecting supplies for the Montville Animal Shelter, collecting sneakers and shoes for school children in Africa, crocheting blankets for abandoned babies (Project Linus), food drive for the Food Pantry, and Troop Drives (supplies for soldiers in war torn areas).
