The Downtown Middle School was founded in 1997 by James Verrilli and Norman Atkins. It was one of the first charter schools in New Jersey. A school that once began with 36 5th graders and 36 6th graders has now expanded to more than 300 students, serving grades 5-8. The school is currently run by Kelly Dowling and Director of Operations Nihir Bhavsar.
