Dr. Forte's Bio 

Dr. Forte was as a special education teacher, football and wrestling coach at the High/Middle School level from 1991-2006. He was named the principal of Lincoln Elementary School in Hasbrouck Heights in 2006 and then he accepted the position of Director of Technology and Curriculum in the same district in 2009. From there he was elevated to the position of High School Principal also in Hasbrouck Heights. In November of 2011, Dr. Forte was named the Superintendent of the Verona Public Schools. During his time in Verona, Dr. Forte was successful in passing a $16.5 Million referendum for badly needed upgrades/repairs district-wide. Dr. Forte is also proud of developing relationships with several colleges and universities and offering college credit courses on the campus of Verona High School. Dr. Forte was also able to bring in $100,000’s in new revenue from outside sources which helped to fund needed technology upgrades and extra-curricular activities.  

In March of 2014, Dr. Forte was appointed the new Superintendent of Schools for Denville Township. He felt it was quite an honor to be named the superintendent of the district in which he resides. During his time in Denville, the district has made many strides in all aspects of school governance. A new seal and motto was created as was a new five year strategic plan called Denville 2022. The strategic plan was created with the assistance of over 100 stakeholders and is discussed at every Board of Education meeting to help keep the district on track. Dr. Forte is very excited about direction of his hometown schools. He has truly enjoys working with the staff, students and community to make the Denville Schools the best they can be.

Dr. Forte and his wife Lisa have been residents of Denville since 2001. They have two children, Marissa and Anthony both of whom attended Denville Schools. Mrs. Forte has been active in Denville Softball and Girl Scouts and Dr. Forte coached Denville Little League, Blue Angels Football and Morris Knolls Junior Eagles Wrestling. During his time as the Glen Rock High School wrestling coach, Dr. Forte coached two state championship teams and was inducted into the Glen Rock Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2013.

My favorite quote from fellow former West Orange resident Thomas Edison:

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this - you haven't.”
