Welcome to Highland Park High School


Principal's Message

Second Semester of the 2018-19 School year is well underway. Students should review Interim Report Progress grades for Third Marking Period and identify any academic concerns that need to be addressed.  Please remember that it always most important how you finish what you start, not whether you stumble along the way!  Keep your eyes on the finish line and continue to do your best.

All of our students are encouraged to set their individual goals for success at the highest levels and to take advantage of the broad range of opportunities and supports our school has to offer.  Students who need assistance with coursework and want to improve their grades should meet with their counselor or teachers to arrange for tutoring or for additional help if needed.  We are always available to provide help to any student.

We have begun the scheduling process for the 2019-20 school year.  Please keep close contact with your guidance counselor as you review recommendations and select courses for next year. 
Please consider challenging yourself with classes that take you out of your comfort zones.
 Last year, the high school received 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, Mathletes, Orchestra, Choir, and Band and other competitive clubs demonstrate that our students, faculty, and school community are focused on all aspects of student achievement.  This year, our Boys and Girls Soccer teams were highly successful winning a State Sectional Championship and the Greater Middlesex Conference championship respectively.  We were also Division Champions in Girls Tennis. Our Winter Track team has also distinguished itself as Second in the State in Division I with students placing in the top ranks in a number of events.  We look forward to our student-athletes continued successes in the upcoming spring season for Baseball, Softball, Tennis, and Track.

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.
