The week of November 18-22 has been proclaimed AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK.  Thursday, November 21, 2013, has been designated as a special visitation day for parents and guardians at Waldwick High School. 
Ongoing research shows that parental involvement in schools improves student achievement, enhances collaboration between home and school, reduces absenteeism and restores confidence among parents in their children’s education.  I encourage you to visit the High School on Thursday, November 21, between the hours of 8:15 and 3:00 pm.
The following suggestions are made to facilitate your visit to the High School:
  • Please sign in and receive a visitor’s pass at the Main Office.
  • To minimize interruptions to our educational programs, please limit your stay in a classroom to fifteen (15) minutes.  Also, please do not confer with teachers or students while visiting.
 Thank you for your cooperation.  We look forward to your visit.

Commended Students in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program

I write this post with great honor and pride that I get to announce three Waldwick High School seniors have been recognized as "Commended Students in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program."  Congratulations to:
Zachary Gurian
Shayna O'Reilly
George Silebi

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2014 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2014 competition by taking the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson for NMSC. "These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

WHS September Students of the Month

September Students of the Month 2013 – 2014



ANTHONY TUTSCHEK - Anthony was selected as student of the month for World Language because he has proven to be responsible, respectful, intelligent and articulate.  He arrives on time each morning looking forward to learning something new.  He remains on task throughout the period and completes all his work. Anthony distinguishes himself from the rest of his classmates by being inquisitive and pointing out things that may be relevant to the lesson.  Anthony works very well when paired up with other students and takes pride in his work.


JOSEPH HURBAN - Joe is a senior in CAD IV.  He has an excellent average and can think for himself, which will be a great advantage for Joe since he wants to become an engineer.  Joe plans on using his CAD design skills in order to participate in design competitions.  Last year Joe was part of a winning team in the Thomas Edison Foundation Design Competition.

CAITLYN ULLMANCaitlyn has moved up this season to play 3rd singles and won all three of her matches in the season opening Hackensack tournament.  She has a winning record of 6-1 in the regular season and plays an action packed match each time, covering the entire court with ease.  Caitlyn also takes AP English and a variety of honors classes working hard to manage school with sports.  She is a true inspiration to her teammates always striving to do better and improve her tennis game while maintaining high academic standing.
