Principal's Message

Ridgefield Park Junior-Senior High School is a great place to grow both academically and socially.  Students, faculty and staff, parents and administrators work together to ensure a positive school climate where teachers can teach and students can learn.  Many opportunities for extra-curricular involvement are afforded to all students throughout the school year.  We advocate for students to be involved in some type of activity so that they are a part of the Scarlet tradition.

At RPJSHS we offer a wide variety of core and elective courses that challenge students of all levels.  Our AP scores consistently rank towards the top of Bergen County.  We are proud of our academic teams which always are among the elite in their respective competitions.  Project Citizen, a project based civic education program, always finishes in the top five in the State, including a first place finish.  We offer more than ten dual enrollment courses where students receive college credit for taking courses at the high school.  For a complete list of course offerings, visit the Guidance Department section of our web page.

Our staff is dedicated to ensuring students receive a well-rounded education.  Students are encouraged to participate in activities outside the classroom.  All club advisors are volunteers with a vested interest in the students and the school, and all clubs are open to all students.  RPJSHS has a rich athletic tradition.  We are consistently towards the top of the standings and are always competing for the overall championship banner in our league.

A big part of our success is parent involvement.  We encourage parents to take part in as many activities as possible.  When we work collaboratively, we ensure all RPJSHS students have a rewarding school experience.  Parents are invited to all events at the school.  Our PTSA is always looking for new members, as is our Booster Club.  Be a part of our great Scarlet tradition.

Sincerely,

Mr. Donohue
