Welcome to Highland Park High School


Principal's Message

The 2018-19 School year is well into the first marking period.  We have already had a very spirited beginning to the school year with the Class of 2019 winning spirit week and all of our hallways showing the spirit of our students.  Interim progress reports are available and parent teacher conferences will occur early in November.  Check your calendars and emails for updates.

Last year, the high school received quite a number of recognitions including Gold Ranking by U.S. News and World Reports as the #17 Best High School in New Jersey.  We also earned the Shoprite Cup as the #1 Group I New Jersey Sports Program.  These awards along with the numerous individual and team awards received by our  Model UN/ Model Congress, DECA, Science Leagues, Orchestra, Choir, and Band and other competitive clubs demonstrate that our students, faculty, and school community are focused on all aspects of student achievement.

All of our students are encouraged to take some time at the start of this school year to set individual goals for success and to take advantage of the broad range of opportunities and supports our school has to offer.  There is always assistance available in our main office, guidance, the Teen Center, nurse's office, and from any of our faculty and staff members to help students with any of their needs.

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.
