WELCOME TO THE JUNIOR-SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL WEBPAGE!
Dear Friends of Wood-Ridge Jr./Sr. High School
From the day I arrived at Wood-Ridge Jr. Sr. High School in the summer of 2014, I have seen steady progress toward strengthening our academic program and performance. Looking at the last 3 years, scores on NJ Ask and HSPA have strengthened! This means that overall instruction for all students 7 – 12 has had more impact. We have learned how to prepare our students and teachers in the classroom for all the many tests our students face. In the coming months, we will face the state PARCC testing for all students in grades 7 – 11. In preparation our Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction has been guiding our teachers to take workshops to practice taking the actual PARCC tests and incorporating the new testing language into our current program. The result is that all of our students will be familiar with the type of questions PARCC will present. We will be ready!
Wood-Ridge Jr. Sr. HS continues to achieve in the area of co-curricular activities and athletics having one of our strongest fall seasons in years. Numerous All League selections were made, the debate club has won awards as has our music program in performances throughout Bergen County. The guidance program continues to offer assistance and programs to aid our students.
During this holiday season, students and teachers at Wood-Ridge Jr. Sr. HS are busy conducting food drives, coat donations and donating toys to needy children. We are proud of their efforts!
I thank you for the support you lend to our entire school community.
