Choice Program

We have 3 schools serving students pre-kindergarten through eighth grade that offers a comprehensive educational program. The core curriculum includes instruction in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health, physical education, Spanish, music, art, and technology. Computer labs and Smart Boards in every homeroom enhance instruction and encourage students’ digital literacy success. Our district is proud of the diverse learning population it services through a wide range of programs. An Academic Support Program, funded by Title 1 money provided by the federal government consists of before and after school clubs for those students who meet established criteria; ESL and Bilingual programs which assists students in learning English and inclusion classrooms which provide support systems for high- needs students to experience success in their least restrictive learning environment. A variety of gifted and talented programs are offered as part of the school day, as well as before and after school. Parents play a vital role in the educational process and are essential to our students’ success and we encourage partnering with the school community to prepare our students’ for the 21st century. Visit our website www.hackettstown.org for more information about our elementary and middle schools.

The high school offers a unique educational experience with a rigorous academic program and opportunities for our students to earn college credits through partnerships with Centenary College and Warren County Community College, as well as offering students the opportunity to take courses not typically offered at the high school online through the VHS Collaborative.

Hackettstown High School has a number of award winning programs such as our band, chorus, FFA and the Technology Students Association robotics program. Hackettstown has also been awarded a Blue Star School for personal financial literacy. Our science program has also been expanded with new courses and our students have the opportunity to conduct DNA research through the Waxman Institute in partnership with Rutgers University. Please visit our website at www.hackettstown.org for more information.

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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.

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.

 NA

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
