Choice Program

Woodbury Junior-Senior High School is recognized as a Silver Medal winner in The US News and World Report Best High School Rankings, the only winner in Gloucester County. We are also proud to be an AVID National Demonstration Junior-Senior High School, the only one in the entire Northeast. In addition, we are the recipient of College Board’s prestigious Inspiration Award for 2012, one of three in the nation.

We have outstanding AVID and AP programs!

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is middle through post-secondary college readiness system that is designed to increase school-wide learning and student performance. AVID focuses on the least served students in the academic middle -- students who are motivated and exhibit good citizenship but may not have benefited from gifted and talented programs. AVID students are enrolled in an AVID Elective Class where they improve their note- taking, organization, study-skills and collaborative technique. An AVID student is also enrolled in at least one Honors or Advanced Placement Class. AVID students are required to apply to one four-year college and are required to take the SAT during high school. They are expected to maintain a minimum of a “C” average in their core content academic areas.

Woodbury offers the following AP classes: Biology, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Chemistry, Computer Science Principles, English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, Music and Composition, Physics, Spanish Language, Statistics, Studio Art, U.S History, Psychology, and World History.

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 9 
School Name: Woodbury Junior and Senior High School

District Choice Policies

Indicate Yes/No/NA 

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

 Yes

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.

 Yes

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.

 Yes
