What a disappointment. One of the reasons that I moved to this town was because of the school system. I am sure it is a great school system, if you and your children fit in. In other words, you are Catholic, white, and have a lot of money. My son has suffered tremendously from the exclusivity of the other students and the teachers. I have begged for help from them and they are rude and unhelpful. They refuse to take a minute out of their day to assist him even though he is on a 504 plan. He is a good hearted child and they constantly put him down and make him feel like he is less than the other students. I have given up all hope that he can be successful because of the teachers' terrible, cold, dismissive attitudes. This is the WORST school with the worst teachers and administrators.
Haddon Heights High School for the most part is a good school that educates very well. However, the school tends to lack on its discipline system. The administration at times is reluctant to deal with disruptive students and focuses an unreasonable amount of attention on minor things such as dress code, while ignoring more important issues. Some teachers do not pay attention to students struggling, and when contacted by parents they are reluctant to respond. However, there are teachers who genuinely care about the students and make an effort to help your child succeed. The school offers a variety of Honors/Ap. courses that prove to be beneficial and offers many extracurricular activities. Overall, Haddon Heights High School is a good experience for most students and with parent involvement, your child will succeed.
