Welcome to Hopatcong High School

Hopatcong High School is a comprehensive high school committed to creating a culture of excellence in which our students, faculty, staff and administration continuously improve. It is a school that promotes the skills of lifelong learning and achievement at the highest level for each student. At Hopatcong High School we systematically respond to the needs of our students, who, as our principal customers, face growing demands on their problem-solving and critical thinking skills as they approach the competitive world of higher education and the global workplace of the 21st Century.

Hopatcong High School has an overall educational philosophy that promotes a wide range of experiences. Students are exposed to a variety of teaching/learning strategies that facilitate a more active and self-directed role in their education. In addition, supervisors and staff in each discipline set relevant and current curricular objectives. Our curriculum is comprehensive, and we offer courses from challenging advanced placement classes to basic skills for students needing remediation. Counseling ensures that curricula address student needs and aspirations, and that proper course sequencing occurs. Individual student data are utilized by counselors and teachers in course placement, long-term advising plans and career planning. In all cases, programs are designed to challenge students and to foster high student achievement.  In addition, Hopatcong High School’s broad academic program is enhanced by an equally comprehensive co-curricula activity program in athletics, music, dramatics, student government, publications, service organizations and other school clubs. Students typically find themselves well prepared for college or work following graduation.

Finally, Hopatcong High School’s parents become partners in their children’s education and maintain a strong connection between family and school. Parents and school have a common goal - to ensure that our children succeed. In light of this, educators and parents work together and reinforce each other by becoming active members of our school community to support our children.
