W-R Jr-Sr HS Announcements

Maps & Directions

Welcome to Wood-Ridge Junior-Senior HS!


We are pleased to announce that Andy Lo and Krishna Mahadevan have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.  A Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by me to these scholastically talented seniors. 

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2016 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 competition by taking the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC.  “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.  We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Dear Parent/Guardians:

The 2015-2016 School Year is quickly approaching and the year promises to be one of academic growth and student achievement.  Both Mr. Sutera and I are excited to be starting the year in our desire to move Wood-Ridge Jr./Sr. High School forward.  New academic courses and endeavors for this year include Business Math, Advanced Placement Physics, Advanced Placement Italian, and the formation of a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society for our Junior High School students.  Upgrades to the building include the renovation and modernization of the gymnasium, which will continue after the school year starts, and the installation of new windows and doors school-wide, which will commence in the early Fall.

In our continuing efforts to eliminate paper forms, the following forms are available on our RealTime Parent Portal and require you to log in and check the appropriate box that you have reviewed these forms.  The forms available are:

  •       Co-Curricular CONTRACT
  •       Student Handbook/Parental Sign-Off Form
  •       Parental Objection to Release Student Information to Military Recruiters, College/University Recruiters or Prospective Employers


The following forms were mailed to you and must be completed and returned to your child’s first period teacher on the first day of school.  If you require an extra copy, please contact the Main Office:
