Choice Program

Phillipsburg High School is a forward-thinking high school providing many opportunities for the students who are enrolled. The High School has a diverse academic curriculum of approximately 150 general education courses, 25 honor level courses and 20 advanced placement courses many of which offer college credit through our dual enrollment program with Warren County Community College and Centenary University. These courses ensure that all students are engaged in challenging work resulting in their attainment of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards at all grade levels while preparing the students to be college and career ready.

A partnership with St. Luke’s Health Network affords students the opportunity to explore areas of the medical profession as well as experience dissections by observing doctors from their network. Our career pathways allow students to explore the various core and elective courses on a specific career-path gives a student 1) knowledge of the content areas required to pursue one or more careers 2) experience in the field that a professional might be exposed to, and 3) an advantage to learn what appeals to them now so they can make measured choices throughout high school and be better prepared for what lies beyond.

In addition, Phillipsburg High School provides student athletes over 40 levels of highly competitive interscholastic sports teams and the Co-Curricular program affords students the opportunity to learn and share desirable qualities through the various 30 club and activity offerings, including drama, student government, publications, choral and band, and service organizations.

 

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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.

 Yes

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
