Choice Program

Bound Brook High School was the first school in the State of New Jersey to offer Project Lead The Way Engineering Program. Our Project Lead The Way Engineering Program has been a model used by numerous districts to implement this program. Our program includes both practical theories of engineering and physics but also applied practices in our state of the art engineering laboratory.

Our engineering laboratory was developed and built in partnership with Johnson and Johnson Corporation and Ethicon in the early 1990’s. Ethicon, to date, is a full partner in our engineering program assisting the district with financial resources and adult mentors for our students.

Following the successful partnership of our Project Lead The Way Engineering program, the Johnson and Johnson Corporation, Ethicon, Somerset Medical Center, Raritan Valley Community College, Rutgers and Bound Brook School District partnered together in the development of a Project Lead The Way Bio-Medical Academy. Both of these academies are open for school choice students to apply.

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 8

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
