Curriculum / Course Offerings / Retention

Our Principal and teachers develop extremely rigorous curricula and focused academic programming within a highly clinical environment. Outcomes are designed to prepare ALL students for the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs offered at West Morris Mendham High School. Students are grouped heterogeneously in courses defined by high expectations and even higher levels of teacher support. Grade level teams have time earmarked each day to meet with parents.
