Dear MJS Families:
It is a great honor to be a part of the Madison Junior School community as principal. As an educator and parent of three children, I am inspired by the ability to have an influence over students’ development through their years in which they are becoming independent young adults. Prior to joining Madison, I served as assistant principal in Pearl R. Miller Middle School in Kinnelon and principal in John Hill School in Boonton. I have been very fortunate as I have enjoyed working with staff, students and parents to support students inside and outside the classroom.
As a principal and lead learner, I value the opportunities that education can provide. I am a proud Explorer as I graduated La Salle University in Philadelphia with a B.A. in English and Secondary Education. From there, I earned my master’s degree from Montclair State University in Administration and Supervision. Finally, I received my doctorate from Rutgers University in Educational Leadership, Theory and Policy.
I’m a proud father of three young children. My son and twin girls love going to see the Giants and Mets play as we are huge sports fans. I also grew up in Hanover Township which has allowed me to be familiar with the values that are important to Madison. I look forward to our continued work towards the commitment to the continuous achievement of all students and the important work of learning, community building and teaching with you.
Louis F. Caruso, Ed.D.
