The Dr. Frank Napier, Jr. School of Technology




The Dr. Frank Napier, Jr. School of Technology (Napier Academy) was founded in 1932 as part of the Paterson Public Schools District.  Formerly known as Public School # 4, Napier Academy provides a learning environment for students in grades 2 through 8. Our mission at the Dr. Frank Napier, Jr. School of Technology is to develop our students' character and intellect in order for them to function successfully in life.


The Dr. Frank Napier, Jr. School of Technology is located in Paterson's first ward.  The neighborhood borders the boroughs of Haledon and Prospect Park and is known for its hills and for having a sweeping view of New York City.


The learning environment is modern, comfortable, suitably equipped, technologically and purposefully designed for specific learning needs. Facilities are continuously upgraded to keep pace with the demands of the educational and extra-curricular programs.


All students benefit from a large gymnasium, auditorium, library, contemporary computer science labs, and art and music rooms. Additional facilities include playgrounds and an adjacent softball field field. Classroom learning is supported by field trips, which take advantage of the vast cultural and educational opportunities of New Jersey, New York and Washington D.C.
