Here at HistoryNusantara, we provide wall-to-wall coverage of the South Orange-Maplewood School District, which educates more than 6,600 children in the towns from kindergarten through 12th grade.

However, some local parents do choose other options for their children’s education. HistoryNusantara is profiling those options. Previously, we featured Montclair-Kimberley Academy in Montclair, Far Brook School in Short Hills, the Pingry School in Short Hills and Basking Ridge, and Newark Academy in Livingston.

This week, the focus is on St. Rose of Lima Academy in Short Hills.

HistoryNusantara will also be profiling individual schools in the South Orange-Maplewood School District.
