Haddonfield Schools

Building Top SAT Scores

Middle School - Group of BoysThe widely recognized Haddonfield Public Schools district welcomes students in grades 6, 9, 10, and 11 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 is a step-by-step continuum. Each year builds on the one before it.

At the middle school, teachers 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 Math 6, Accelerated Math 6, Math 7, Accelerated Math 7, Pre-Algebra 8, Accelerated Algebra I, and global languages German, French and Spanish. The middle school academic programs are enhanced by the school’s 1:1 Chromebook program.

But middle school isn’t all work and no play. Outside of regular school hours, Haddonfield Middle’s “curricular extensions” let students explore other paths and interests. These include Gay-Straight Alliance, Diplomats for Diversity, Coding Club, HMS Drama Club, a state-recognized Sea Perch program and Math Counts. 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 high school has been a “No Place for Hate” site in South Jersey — a coveted recognition from the Anti-Defamation League — since 2011. Their “No Place for Hate” honor recognizes a commitment to promoting strong respect for diversity and to continuing anti-bias efforts.

MICHELLE – Parent

“I have had three tuition students at Haddonfield. My first child received a college scholarship from the Haddonfield Educational Trust as well as an athletic college scholarship. She is pre-med now. My second child is a HMHS senior and has been accepted to a very competitive Doctor of Physical Therapy program. My son has just begun his freshman year. We could not ask for better teachers, coaches or guidance counselors​.”

“I came to HMHS as a freshman from a much larger school district that didn’t really challenge me academically. I have loved so many classes, but especially AP Bio where the teacher engaged all of us and made me love science. At HMHS, I found out who I really am.”
