Choice Program

Mainland is an academically oriented four-year public school with an enrollment of approximately 1250 students. Students have the opportunity to compete on 25 successful varsity sports teams and participate in any of the 40 available school-sponsored clubs. Mainland has become a model school through our A.C.E. program, which encourages Accountability, Connectedness, and Engagement of students, faculty, and staff.

Mainland Regional High School’s curriculum includes more than 220 diverse course offerings in the areas of: Language Arts Literacy, the Visual and Performing Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Business, World Languages, 21st Century Life Skills, and Health and Physical Education. There are 23 Advanced Placement courses, 33 Honors courses, and 14 Gifted/Talented courses. Four world languages are offered.

 

Choice Seats Availability

The purpose of the chart below is to inform parents of choice seat availability before the application deadline in early December. After the deadline, the information will be outdated.

The Department of Education limits the number of choice seats that each district can fill. The “maximum number of new choice students that can be enrolled” tells parents how many new choice students the district can enroll in the next school year. If more than the maximum number of applications is received, a lottery will be held and a waitlist will be developed. Waitlists will be developed for all approved choice grades even if no seats are currently available. NA indicates the district is not accepting choice applications for those grades.

Maximum Number of New Choice Students that can be Enrolled: 13

District Choice Policies

Indicate Yes/No/NA 

The district accepts Tier 2 students (see definitions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 ).

 No

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have a sibling currently attending the choice district, provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have completed the terminal grade of the sending district (i.e., students who attend a choice district with grades that terminate before 12th grade and have a natural progression to this choice district), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 N/A

The district gives enrollment preference to resident students who move before the application deadline. If resident students move and file choice applications for the following year prior to the deadline, the district will give them enrollment preference (i.e., accept them after the enrollment preference students described in b. and c. above, but ahead of other applicants), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria. If the district has already reached its approved choice enrollment maximum, this preference will not apply.

 No

The district gives special consideration to resident students who move after the application deadline. Students in this situation may apply as late applicants and be added to the front of the district’s waitlist, provided the students will enroll in a choice-approved grade/program and they meet any program-specific criteria. No additional choice seats above the maximum will be approved by the NJDOE to accommodate these students.

 No
