Why We’re Different

Small Feel, Big Choice

We’re large enough to offer a complete range of athletic, art and music programs but small enough to feel like other private schools in South Jersey. Haddonfield offers a non-religious curriculum for college-bound students, and its diverse population regularly achieves top test scores in the region.

Parents who choose Haddonfield are often looking to blend the diverse experience of a public district with the academic excellence of a private school. We’re different because we achieve that “best of both worlds” goal. Nowhere else in the Philadelphia region would every student be welcome on our no-cut athletic teams, then be part of an almost guaranteed winning season. What other school has enough students for seven afterschool clubs involving music, and enough academic achievement for an AP course in Music Theory? Our graduates go on to enroll at small-town colleges like Albright and Emerson, and powerhouse universities like Yale, Columbia and Princeton.

Haddonfield schools are integrated into a close-knit but cosmopolitan community where an above-average socioeconomic profile attracts business leaders, executives and other professionals.  Unlike most public systems, Haddonfield’s benefits from an academic homogeneity with a high percentage of students succeeding in its rigorous college prep program. The schools are unique in their ability to draw students from other districts in the region, a testament to the district’s well-earned reputation.


Excellence on Every Front

  • Highest SAT scores among South Jersey public schools, year after year
  • Full range of co-curricular and athletic activities, with more than 90% of students taking part
  • 18 AP courses, and more than half the high schoolers enrolled in at least one of them
  • The ONLY winner of the ShopRite Cup for Group II schools since the award’s 2004 inception, recognizing the best all-around athletic program
  • Four foreign languages taught at the high school; three at the middle school
  • Strong showing in visual and performing arts that involve credit courses, afterschool clubs and community presentations
  • Tradition of volunteer service through high school clubs to meet varied interests and a middle school mentor program that includes community service

ROBERT – Parent

“It’s big enough to be competitive in everything, but the student numbers aren’t overwhelming. My sons felt immediately at home, immediately accepted and immediately part of the student body.”

– Robert, who sons have blended right in with the Class of 2015 as tuition students

PATRICE – Parent

“I liked Haddonfield because it was small, with more of a private school feeling about it. But the school was big enough that he could do lots of activities.”

– Patrice, whose son attended a private middle school in Philadelphia before transferring to HMHS as a tuition student

“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.”

“I like the fact that all of the teachers really know the kids. They weren’t going to get lost in a high school that had 3,000 or 4,000 kids.”

– Paige, whose two children went from a close-knit, private elementary school to HMHS as tuition students

“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. ”
