I have 2 children that have Gradutaed from Woodbridge High School and I have to say that I was very pleased with not only the education they were getting but the concern the staff showed in theur students. I always felt welcome to come in and discuss anything that I felt needed to be addressed. Like any school you will get a staff member that will not be stubborn but if that was the case I flet comfortable enough that I could take my concerns to those in a higher position to help try to work things out. I feel that the extracurricular activities were a hugh help with making the high school experience for my children a success.

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.
