Latest High School News
Student places first in Banned Books Essay Contest
Congratulations to Reem Guirgis, grade 9, for winning the school's first annual Banned Books Week essay contest. The school's library joined libraries of all types nationwide last week in celebrating our freedom to read by educating students and staff about banned books. The art department worked with the library to create a display of banned books to complement the library's own display.
The essay contest required students to recall a banned book that they read, and discuss why the book held meaning for them. Reem chose The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini for her essay. For her efforts, she was awarded with a variety of book themed treasures and a Barnes and Noble gift card for $25.00. Great job, Reem! Keep reading.

Good news regarding recent test scores
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers,
While our focus in this district is on the students and not on standardized tests, we are always happy for good test results that reflect the hard work of our students and staff. That is why I am thrilled to announce that this year, 93% of our students were proficient on the language arts literacy section of the New Jersey High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA). This result is, by far, the best we have achieved on the HSPA in a very long time—and maybe the best HSPA scores ever achieved in this district.

Although our scores remained flat in the area of mathematics, we were able to match our 61% proficiency level from last year—still the highest mathematics proficiency percentage achieved in this district for quite some time. I am confident that we have great momentum moving forward with a variety of enhancements in place to improve mathematics education in this district.
Congratulations to our eleventh-grade students, their teachers, and our administrators.

Sincerely,

Mark Toback
