Choice Program

The High Bridge School District is a Kindergarten through eighth grade program located in scenic Hunterdon County New Jersey. The elementary school currently operates two classrooms at each grade level kindergarten through fourth grade which provides for small class size and excellent communication opportunities for our instructors. The district offers a full-day Kindergarten program. The middle school provides students in grades five through eighth grade an excellent educational program offering the opportunity for student growth in academics and social development. The middle school also provides extra-curricular opportunities in programs such as our very active Student Leadership program and our excellent interscholastic sports program. The High Bridge School District is proud to offer quality services for students with educational disabilities. The district employs quality instructors and Child Study Team members that are responsive to the needs of our students. Parents who reside outside of High Bridge Borough and are interested in sending their children to the High Bridge School District are encouraged to visit the Inter-district School Choice portion of our district’s website at www.hbschools.org.

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 2

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
