Marlboro Township Schools implemented a blended learning instructional environment during the 2011 school year. By 2013, the MTPS became a 1:1 learning environment with the use of Chromebooks and various educational technology programs. At this time, the number of available digital tools increased greatly and the district now implements a mix of free programs such as G-Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education) and district budgeted programs such as Study Island, ST Math, IXL Math, Achieve3000, RAZ Kids, Reading Eggs, BrainPop, Discovery Education and Pear Deck to name a few. MTPS has a robust, comprehensive, and collaborative action plan to implement personalized learning for all students.

On March 17, 2003, Marlboro Memorial Middle School (MMMS) opened its doors to 540 seventh and eighth grade students, becoming the second middle school in the district. The school is located on Nolan Road off Lloyd Road in the northern section of Morganville. The 153,000 square foot building is a state-of-the art facility that houses academic classrooms, science labs, home arts areas, applied technology labs, small group instruction rooms, music and art areas, computer labs, gyms, health offices, student services conference rooms, and administrative offices.
A much anticipated dedication ceremony was held on April 3, 2003. Speakers included Superintendent of Schools Dr. David Abbott, Business Administrator Cindy Barr-Rague, Marlboro Board of Education President Cynthia Green, Principal Joanmarie Penney, and New Jersey Assistant Commissioner of Education Dr. J. Michael Rush. Student leaders escorted parent and community tours throughout the school as they shared their excitement about our beautiful new facility.
In June 2003, the student council buried a time capsule in the MMMS main courtyard with memorabilia from the dedication and the first months of school.
Visitors to the schools may notice a beautiful watercolor painting of MMMS in the entrance foyer. Dorothy Ostermann, parent and artist, presented this visual interpretation of the school to the board of education. The artwork depicts monarch lions in the foreground interacting with the academic and nurturing atmosphere of the school. It is a treasured gift to the entire school community.
In September 2003, sixth graders were welcomed from the district’s five elementary schools into both middle schools, completing the transition to schools that now house grades six through eight.
MMMS is presently home to almost 1,000 students. The school’s mascot, the monarch lion, was chosen by the students to symbolize peace, and strength. The school colors, maroon, black, and white are highlighted with gray. The school newspaper is appropriately called The Royal Register and is published throughout the year.
In October 2003, the New Jersey School Boards Association, New Jersey Association of School Administrators, and New Jersey Association of School Business Officials awarded Marlboro Memorial Middle School first place in the New Buildings and Major Additions category of the groups' Third Annual Architects Competition and Awards Display. The competition showcases architectural designs that help contribute to the learning environment and success of New Jersey's public schools.
