Welcome back to New Brunswick High School – Where all students can and will learn! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year.
This school year, as in all previous years, our primary responsibility is student learning and offering our students the educational opportunities that will maximize their potential. This responsibility is supported in our district’s vision statement, “To Prepare, Empower, and Inspire lifelong learners and leaders.” Today’s world demands students who think critically. We do this by challenging them in their learning experiences as they work to achieve their dreams. Within the graduation requirements of the New Brunswick Public Schools, you will find expectations for each student to receive a well-rounded education. This includes a unique combination of rigorous academic standards and achievement in an inviting school culture.
The students of New Brunswick High School are provided with numerous opportunities to be challenged as they learn and grow through college preparatory, honors, and advanced placement courses. As part of our requirements, students are expected to have four years in language arts, three years in math, science and social studies. Students will also benefit from challenging classes in engineering and architecture, music, drama, information technology, business and the work place, child development, and personal wellness. Additionally, in our alternative education courses and honors programs, students are ensured to have success and be appropriately challenged. We have approximately 1800 students in grades 9-12, and we operate on an A/B Block model that houses our academies and smaller learning communities.
New Brunswick High School has a long tradition of excellence in academics as well as extracurricular and co-curricular activities. One of our greatest strengths is the pride and support from our community, and our parents are critical contributors to the success of our students.
I welcome your involvement as we work to provide the best possible education to the students of the New Brunswick community. I encourage you to contact me with your ideas, suggestions and concerns.
