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 student body 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.

  • Five languages taught at the high school; three at the middle school
  • Strong showing in visual and performing arts that involve credit courses, after school 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

Senior, lacrosse player, Peer Leader, headed for college to study sports communications. “My mom is a graduate of  Haddonfield, and so she knew that Haddonfield has excellent academics and athletics. The teachers really get to know you and genuinely want what’s best for you. In Greek Drama, my teacher knew I was afraid of public speaking, and she helped me to overcome it.”

LYNN – Parent

“Our daughter is a highly motivated, competitive student-athlete. HMHS was the best choice for her because the environment enabled her to thrive academically as well as athletically. There is no doubt in our minds that our daughter is well prepared for college!”

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​.”

Senior, softball player, National Honor Society member, headed to college to become a physical therapist. “My mom moved me from a small private school to Haddonfield when I was in sixth grade. It was hard at first, because Haddonfield really challenges us. But once I realized I could do the work, my confidence soared and I began to excel.”

“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.”
