Welcome to Highland Park High School


The fourth marking period of this school year is beginning and our students continue their efforts in class while the Class of 2017 looks forward to graduation in June!

Spring sports are doing fantastic!  Come out and support our Baseball and Softball Teams and definitely try to catch a Spring Track meet! Down at Donaldson Park you could also catch some thrilling Boys Tennis matches as well.  Our Girl's Track team recently set the County record in the Long Jump and our 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams have set new school records!  Our Boys' Tennis Team is poised to win the division.  Our Baseball and Softball Teams are also doing very well and having terrific seasons.

Our Band, Orchestra, and Choir are performing their spring concerts and competitions, and the production of Hairspray, our spring musical, was phenomenal.  Our HS Chamber Orchestra placed 1st place overall at the Music in the Parks competition.

Recently our DECA  team returned from the International competition in California and 4 of our students placed 10th out of 200 teams internationally!  Our Model UN/Congress program HPMUNC returned from the Mexico City International Model UN as the Best Delegation overall with students winning numerous individual awards!

Our High school was also recognized by US News and World Reports as #36 in NJ and 3rd in Middlesex County!

Our counselors have met with every student to plan schedules for 2017-18.  
Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to review our Program Planning guide fully in order to review decisions for course selections.  Please continue to take full advantage of Naviance accounts to make post-secondary school plans and set goals for college and/or careers as well.

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.
