District

Google MapsWe are a diverse and dynamic learning community, serving over 1,500students in four schools. The educational research shows that a small school provides more attention to each learner and assists at broadening the “whole child.” As a small school system in a very diverse community, we offer a broad range of programs and learning opportunities that are enhanced by strong support from families and community members.

Our staff of professional educators has distinguished themselves in a multitude of ways, winning honors and public recognition for their achievement and expertise. They bring compassion, commitment and extraordinary skill to their classrooms each and every day. Our students and staff represent many cultures and ethnic groups, and close to 43languages are spoken by our families.

In the Highland Park School District, caring adults play an important role in student success. Our focus on partnering families has always been a priority. Parents, guardians and family members can and should expect to be warmly welcomed at school; to receive timely and helpful information about student progress and ways to help their child learn;and to be invited to join in school activities. The District's relationship with Rutgers University also continues to flourish as we work together to provide programs for our students and families and professional development for our staff.

After visiting our website, I hope you take away a sense of the vibrancy and excitement here at Highland Park Public Schools. Through local school elections, business and community partnerships, and family and community involvement, I know that the residents of Highland Park and our state care about schools. It is this passion and energy that sustains and improves our system for each and every child. We are grateful for this continuing support as we help each student learn and grow.
