Welcome to Highland Park High School


The First Quarter of the 2017-18 school year is now completed.

We continue to see our students striving to do their best in classes, but would encourage more students to take advantage of our period 1 study hall to complete work and seek assistance from teachers if needed.  A survey on our new schedule will be conducted with all our students, teachers, and parents participating so we can get feedback on its implementation.

All of our clubs are meeting regularly and students are encouraged to join an extracurricular activity to enrich their high school experience.  A complete list of clubs is available in the Student Handbook located under High School Quick Links above or in the agendas distributed to every student.

The Fall sports' season has nearly concluded and we are proud of the accomplishments of all our athletes!  Our Boys Soccer Team won the Central NJ Group I Title for the first time in school history, our Girls Soccer Team won the Gold Division Title, our Girls Volleyball Team had a fantastic season finishing with 14 wins, and our Cross Country Team had students who placed in the Group I State finals as well. We look forward to our traditional Thanksgiving football game at Metuchen this year to finish the season.  All winter sports will begin on November 27, 2017.

Remember that we are the OWLS, and our mission is for each of our students to demonstrate Openness, Wisdom, Leadership, and Spirit as they prepare for college, future careers, and active participation in society.  We are dedicated to serving our students and guiding them as they fulfill this mission.  Please do not hesitate to contact us whenever you have a question or concern!
