Middle Township High School

Middle Township High School is a four-year, accredited, comprehensive high school situated in central Cape May County. The school serves the communities of Middle Township, Dennis Township, Avalon, Stone Harbor, and Woodbine Borough. Middle Township consists of approximately 70 square miles of rural, lightly populated woodlands and marshes. Within the borders of the township are small-unincorporated villages including the county seat, Cape May Court House. Dennis Township is similar to Middle Township, but is slightly smaller geographically and in population. Avalon and Stone Harbor are seashore resorts located on Seven-Mile Island. Woodbine Borough, the newest addition to our school community, is a vibrant, multi-ethnic community in the middle of the Cape May County mainland. Seasonal tourist trade is the major economic factor for the area. Middle Township High School serves approximately 750 students with eighty five faculty members.

Middle Township High School is committed to offering our students numerous educational opportunities. By offering a college prep curriculum, we hope to engage students in the classroom and raise their expectations for post-secondary plans. We offer 14 Advanced Placement courses and 20 dual credit courses with Atlantic Cape Community College. Both of these options afford our students the opportunity to earn college credit before graduation. Our concurrent enrollment program similarly allows our students the opportunity to receive both high school credit and college credit by attending classes at Atlantic Cape Community College while they are still in high school. In addition to meeting the state graduation requirements, we now offer pathways in the following content areas through an academy approach: Performing Arts (instrumental music, vocal music, dance, theater, and television production), Computer (STEM), Medicine and Health, and Business.

Middle Township High School works to prepare our students for numerous standardized tests, including the End of Course Biology assessment, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, and Scholastic Aptitude assessments. Additionally, we use 9th and 10th grade assessments to help identify students in need of supplemental instruction. We also provide all of our 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students with the opportunity to experience the PSAT assessment as a part of our regular curriculum.Administrators, instructional supervisors, and school counselors use these test results to better schedule students in courses designed to prepare them for PARCC proficiency and advanced proficiency. Students are placed in appropriate acceleration courses to reinforce the concepts necessary in preparation for the state testing.

Middle Township High School has worked very hard to provide our students with the technology to prepare them for the 21st century. All of our classrooms contain computers, video capabilities, ceiling mounted projectors, and Smart Board technology. Middle Township High School strives to provide excellence in education that produces graduates who possess a love of learning and a sense of responsibility, enabling all students to reach their potential and become active, productive members of a dynamic, global society. Middle Township High School encourages all of its students to be well-rounded and, therefore, offers students opportunities to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular programs ranging from our award winning mock trial team to twenty athletic teams competing at the varsity level. There are approximately thirty-five student clubs/organizations from which to choose. We want our students to take pride in our school, and belonging to a club, organization or athletic team is a step in the right direction.

In conclusion, we want the community to be proud of its high school. We can accomplish this by working together and getting you involved in your child's education. We hope to offer a curricular program at the high school that will reach all students and help prepare them to be successful members of the 21st century.
