Dear Fellow Woodcliff Lake Parents:

Welcome to both new and returning families!  Your children will have the opportunity to grow and learn in one of the best school districts in New Jersey.  One of the many ways Woodcliff Lake schools continue to be premier educational institutions is through the support of the Woodcliff Lake Educational Foundation, known as WCLEF.

In addition to our wonderful teachers and faculty, what sets us apart from most local public school districts?

  • Imagination (STEAM) Lab at Dorchester
  • STEM Lab at the Middle School
  • 5th Grade Math Lab with Chromebooks​
  • Television Studio at the Middle School
  • Mac Lab, Tablets for Art, Electronic Science Scales, and so much more!

These are just some of the recent grants WCLEF has provided to our schools. 

WCLEF is a not-for-profit foundation run by parents and its mission is to promote academic excellence in the Woodcliff Lake schools by providing funding for innovative and creative educational programs that fall outside of the traditional school budget.  In recent years, WCLEF has raised over $1.5 Million for the Woodcliff Lake public schools.  WCLEF raises money through a few big events each year, including the Charity Golf Classic, Family Bingo Night, the Run for Education and Principal/Superintendent for the Day. 

We meet once a month at 7:30 p.m. in the Middle School Media Center.  We meet in the evenings so that moms and dads who work or are home during the day caring for children can attend.  Please join us for a meet and greet on Wednesday, September 12 at 7 p.m. in the Middle School Media Center to learn more about what we do.  If you like what you hear and have time, stay for our first meeting of the year which will begin at 7:30 p.m.  In the meantime, if you want to learn more about WCLEF, please check out our website at or send us an e-mail at  We look forward to meeting you!
