About the Superintendent
Dr. Scott Oswald joined the Collingswood School District in July, 2007 after having served as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction in the Northern Burlington County Regional School District. In addition, Dr. Oswald has served as principal at the Northern Burlington County Regional High School.
Prior to accepting the position at Northern Burlington, Dr. Oswald was the first high school principal at the Lindenwold High School in Lindenwold, New Jersey. When the high school opened in 2001, Dr. Oswald was charged with preparing the building for the opening, establishing a comprehensive curriculum, staffing the building with the highest quality teachers, and beginning to establish the culture and traditions of the high school.
Dr. Oswald's other experiences include six years as an assistant principal for academics at Delran High School and experience in the Bureau of Standards and Assessment at the New Jersey Department of Education. Dr. Oswald began his career as a middle school and high school mathematics and computer science teacher in the Burlington Township Schools, teaching all levels of students between grades 7 and 12 from remedial math to AP Calculus and Computer Science.
Dr. Oswald attended the University of Delaware as a mathematics major and continued on to study education and educational administration at Rider University. He received his Doctorate of Education degree from Nova Southeastern University in 1999.
While a Superintendent has many responsibilities throughout the course of a day and a year, Dr. Oswald sees his primary responsibilities as providing a safe learning environment for all students, developing the best qualified staff to work directly with our students, and continuing to introduce and infuse new and dynamic ideas into our programs and classrooms in a manner that is safe and rewarding for both teachers and students. Working together, faculty, students, staff, and administration, Dr. Oswald believes we can achieve anything we can dream.
