Ranked in America’s Best High Schools Issue US News & World Report 2003 No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon School Project Lead the Way “School of Excellence”

Located on the campus of Brookdale Community College, H.T.H.S. is a specialized school that emphasizes the disciplines of science, mathematics, and technology in support of its pre-engineering career focus. The application process has become increasingly competitive with approximately seventy students being selected each year from a pool of over three hundred outstanding applicants, representing a th cross-section of students from over fifty sending school districts. Students apply as 8 graders and are accepted based on multiple criteria, including middle school grades, and performance on district developed assessments. A member of the National Consortium of Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology (NCSSSMST), H.T.H.S. has been described by the U.S. Dept. of Education as a “benchmark school.” It went on to say the school “evidences that its approach embraces student, faculty, staff, and administration alike in a mission of excellence, requiring the most of, and providing the most to, all who enter there.” Accreditation: Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools & NJ Department of Education

Grading System

70 Graduates Four Year College -> 100% 31 Commended -> 13 Semi-Finalists/Finalists -> 7 Winners Mean High Scores: 713 (Critical Reading), 736 (Math), 715 (Writing) 100% tested, 210 total exams taken, 92.8% scoring 3 or above Biology, Calculus (AB, BC), Chemistry, Physics C, Statistics

All courses at HTHS are taught at the Honors level and grades are therefore not weighted or inflated. 92-100 85-91 77-84 70-76 55-69 (A) = Superior Proficiency (B) = Above Average Proficiency (C) = Proficient (D) = Partial Proficiency (F) = Not Proficient/No Credit

Class Rank The majority of our students earn grades that are exemplary. Each year a large percentage of the senior class receives Semi-Finalist or Commended Status on the NMSQT. We believe that our students’ levels of achievement are not fully communicated by using class rank as a singular transcript statistic. High Technology High School and Monmouth County Vocational School District policy, therefore, precludes reporting of class rank.
