SHRHS District and Community Profile
(Download this page as a PDF)

The South Hunterdon Regional School District includes a close- knit 7th -12th grade school that works in partnership with a diverse, supportive community. The school, and the community that it serves are anchored in a strong sense of belonging dedicated to offering an integrated, balanced, and creative education in a challenging, encouraging environment. Our mission is to empower all students with the confidence, vision, opportunity, and knowledge to reach their potential as lifelong learners, and to adapt to and transform the diverse and dynamic world in which they live.  

Located in southern Hunterdon County, New Jersey, South Hunterdon Regional High School serves students in seventh through twelfth grades from the municipalities of Lambertville, Stockton and West Amwell Township. South Hunterdon is currently accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools. Known as one of the smallest high schools in the state, South allows students to experience a public school education in a private school setting. 

Since 2012 South has participated in the NJ Interdistrict Public School Choice Program. This elective school program has allowed students from within a 30 mile radius to attend South tuition-free. The program has added to the cultural wealth of the district and community. 


2023– 2024 At a Glance:

South Hunterdon Regional High School is a comprehensive middle school and secondary school (grades 7 – 12) with a student population of 424, (70 in the current senior class). The faculty numbers 56, approximately 48% with advanced degrees. The current certified staff-to-student ratio is 8.5 to 1. 


Educational & Program Adjustments During COVID-19: 

Like most of the country, South Hunterdon made the pivot to online instruction in March of 2020. Students completed the 2019-20 academic year via ZOOM and access to Google Classroom. Statewide testing requirements for the 2020 and 2021 school years were waived. All spring sports and activities were canceled. 

For the 2020-21 school year SHRHS opened with the option of either a 100% virtual or a hybrid learning environment. In the SHR hybrid model, students attended an abbreviated, in-person schedule for two days a week, and attended virtual sessions for the remaining days. All students attended virtual office hours each Wednesday through the third marking period. Most students transitioned to 100% in-person learning in the fourth quarter and completed the year in a traditional fashion, though without course finals. The school was able to field teams in all sports seasons. 

The 2021-22 school year marked a full transition back to in-person education. Though virtual links and asynchronous work was provided to students under quarantine, the building stayed open and provided live in-person instruction every day of the school calendar. 


Curriculum:

The college preparatory curriculum is designed to develop individual potential while meeting the entrance requirements for America’s most competitive colleges. The rigorous program of studies contains a full complement of college preparatory courses and a comprehensive vocational/technical program. Each academic discipline offers honors level and advanced placement options. Students may choose from a wide variety of offerings in elective fields. South Hunterdon Regional School District’s Board of Education policies require a minimum of 120 credits be earned during a student’s 9th – 12th grade years (excludes 7th/8th grade courses) in order to receive a high school diploma. It is recommended that students take a full 40 credits of classes each year. 


GPA:

GPA reflects a students’ cumulative average beginning with grade 9. The SHRHS numeric grading scale is a modified ten-point scale that uses pluses and minuses and increases the grade point weight for College Prep courses, Honors courses, and Advanced Placement courses. When calculating GPA, first multiply the credit value of the course times the grade point value of the grade received in the course. The GPA is then calculated as follows: Sum of all (grade point values × credits) divided by the sum of credits for all courses graded. All official GPAs are based on a 4.33 scale
