Your child has to do well to reap the benefits of this school. Doing well, is not hard at all. All students have to do is go to class everyday and do their work, this is what the 'smart' kids do. The teachers (for the most part) are excellent and if kids would avoid all the FAKE gang activity and sit in the front of class, and have parents who actually come to open house, they would excel.

This school is alright its not exactly the best school to go to. Once you have your mind focused and you have great friends you'll survive. I'll certainly say that I will miss it.

The Academic programs, sport and other activitites are OK,if you have an 'A' student. All other are lost in the crowd. Parental involvement is non-existant. Trying to see a teacher is a JOKE unless your child is in trouble. The building is a work of art but that's where it ends. It's just too big. For the shy or less then perfect student, this not the place. These young adult still need guidance NOT a POLICE presence, however necessary for the fights within. Classes are too large to control and at dismissal too many students are concentrated in one area, not to mention the 3 middle schools plus 1 elementray 2 blocks away Fights are abundant. 2500+ students in a 4 block radius. Mr. Educator, What Were You Thinking. Only two high schools. This was waste of extremely high tax dollars. Smaller would be better.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
