Our son is very happy at HHS. He is taking a variety of classes and is discovering new interests. He has renewed interest in subjects he thought he would not like. He is enjoying participating in afterschool activies.The school is responsive to student input. The school uniform was broadened to include spriritwear based on student feedback.The cafeteria is open for breakfast, lunch and afterschool. Students have several choices. Our son likes the food.As a parent, I appreciate the communication. I can view our son's progress through genesisedu.com. Event reminders are received by robo-calls and email. Administrators and teachers return calls and email on a timely basis.

Happy at HHS! Some exceptional teachers and guidance counselors, and a principal focused on the right issues makes HHS a truly great school . The mandate of public schools demands they serve all, across the income and performance spectrum. Kids from at-risk homes or with special needs require specialized attention. Likewise, high-achieving students fare best in a challenging environment. Hoboken High meets all these needs (and those in between). Our kids have thrived with AP and Honors classes, intense coursework and engaging teachers. The strength of the (fully funded) arts, sports and extra-curricular programs is also key for us. The school often competes and wins at the state-wide level. The mistaken bad rep view lingers, sadly. Ironic, as student safety and discipline are taken very seriously. Indeed, walk through the hallways of this small school and the culture of togetherness in this diverse student community is obvious. Folks that dismiss Hoboken High because it reflects this urban community or reduce its varied student body to a simple test score are ignoring a great educational option. We have been there for three years now and haven t regretted it once.

Hoboken High School is a gem of a school. Our daughter has benefitted from the small class size and personal attention she gets from her teachers, all of whom are very open to parent involvement. She takes mostly AP and honors classes and the work is rigorous and challenging. And, as she enters her senior year and is zeroing in on college plans, we have appreciated the excellent guidance department, too.

Hoboken High School has consistently gotten a "bad rep" because of low test scores and "inadequate" academic performance, in addition to many unintentional (and/or intentional) racist bias. Yes, many of the students at the school do just get by with the bare minimum and graduate ill-prepared for the world they face today. But Hoboken High School certainly cannot be blamed for this, and to simply skip over all the positives of the school to just focus on and point at the negatives is negligible. I have had the privilege of attending Hoboken High School for what is now three years, and I am thrilled to continue for my last year. The ability to play sports, perform in shows, debate across the country, write for the school's newspaper, interact with students of all different backgrounds and personalities all the while being pushed to take a variety of rigorous AP courses is something that not many high school students get the opportunity to do, and I am thankful that Hoboken High School is one of the only schools in the area that gives me that opportunity. Don't judge a book by its cover. I highly recommend looking into this really great local public school.
