This Program of Studies has been carefully crafted to provide our students with the best educational experiences possible while attending Passaic Valley Regional High School. The contents of this book were generated by a committee of teachers, counselors and administrators with the sole purpose of building a curriculum that was relevant, engaging, student-centered and innovative.
Our updated Program of Studies delivers a wide range of course choices that allow for real and authentic learning opportunities for all students. With many exciting elective courses, numerous co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, Advanced Placement courses, Dual Enrollment opportunities, and Career Certification Pathways, we have established an exemplary template in our attention to the development of the whole child.
With an enrollment size of approximately 1,020 students, 98 teaching staff members, six counselors and two mental health clinicians, we are able to offer a personalized learning approach that is unrivaled. Our low teacher-student ratio ensures that each child will be able to foster positive relationships with our staff while being empowered to become the best version of themselves.
It has been a productive school year and I am very proud of the work we have done so far. We will continue to adapt, modify and create learning opportunities that enable our students to be more than just mere participants. Simply stated, it is our goal to build an educational program that produces the next future leaders of this world.
