Haddonfield Schools

Building Top SAT Scores

Middle School - Group of BoysThe widely recognized Haddonfield Public Schools district welcomes students in grades 6 through 12 to fill a limited number of openings in the general education programs of its middle and high schools. We recognize that a student’s middle school experience lays the foundation for high school achievement. That’s why Haddonfield’s curriculum for grades 6 through 12 is a step-by-step continuum. Each year builds on the one before it.

At the middle school, teachers work as teams to cover core curriculum subjects, forming an important bridge between the one-teacher familiarity of elementary school and the multi-teacher structure of high school. The school’s curriculum includes Algebra I in seventh grade and Algebra II in eighth grade, which prepares interested students for upper-level math in high school. Students can choose from three world languages: Spanish, French and German.

But middle school isn’t all work and no play. Outside of regular school hours, Haddonfield Middle’s “curricular extensions” – like robotics workshops and the well-known Odyssey of the Mind program – let students explore other paths and interests. The school also has a robust Peer Leadership Program that involves students in community service projects, helps them learn to avoid destructive decisions (especially with respect to alcohol and drugs), and builds school pride.

Those are among the 30 co-curricular clubs and activities available to our middle and high school students. In addition, student-athletes have a range of teams to consider. While many families consider ninth grade as a time to consider a new school, Haddonfield encourages parents and students to rethink sixth grade as the optimal transfer point. That earlier timing sets the middle school student on a path for high school success. And because students from three elementary schools come together at Haddonfield Middle, there’s no better time for a newcomer to blend in. Everyone’s new in sixth grade!


Schools Are ‘NO PLACE FOR HATE’

Haddonfield’s middle school and high schools were the second and third sites in South Jersey to win coveted recognition from the Anti-Defamation League. Their “No Place for Hate” honor recognizes a commitment to promoting strong respect for diversity and to continuing anti-bias efforts.

“Probably the best thing for me that I’ve done is come here instead of my hometown school. I did spring track and cross country, and I really met a lot of people. There are also clubs and a lot of volunteer work you can do. ”

“The transition from private school to public school wasn’t that difficult. The process of meeting people and making friends wasn’t that hard, either. Even if you don’t want to play a varsity sport, there is intramural basketball. And if sports aren’t your thing, there’s an amazing drama club. There’s really a niche for everyone.”
