Mrs. Lauren Zirpoli 
Principal's Message

Recognized for excellence in academics, the arts, athletics and community service, New Providence High School provides students with a wide range of experiences and opportunities designed to promote intellectual, social, and emotional growth.  New Providence High School continues to uphold the values that were created in the school’s original mission statement created in 1958, “Let this school be dedicated to the process of acquiring knowledge, skills and understanding of our culture, so that all students can achieve a foundation for further intellectual growth and attain civic competence through the active pursuit of citizenship.”

NPHS students are able to choose from a wide array of academic course offerings designed to challenge them at appropriate levels of ability. Eighteen Advanced Placement and nineteen Honors classes are offered. Advanced Placement courses offer students the challenges of a college level course as well as the opportunity to accumulate college credits.
New Providence High School remains committed to maximizing student opportunities for growth, evidenced by our continuing exploration of local, state, and global partnerships. Instruction is offered in five world languages. Ongoing international continue with Italy, Japan and France and we recently created a partnership with a school from Spain.
Incorporating service learning opportunities into the fabric of educational process provides students with challenges and experiences both within and outside the traditional classroom. Student-sponsored food and clothing drives, choral performances at local senior citizens centers, volunteer tutoring , intergenerational senior citizen projects and student initiated blood drives allow students to interact with community members in a variety of positive ways. These activities give New Providence High School students an opportunity to give back and show appreciation for all they are given.
Our co-curricular offerings, from discipline specific clubs to athletics to drama, are designed to allow students the opportunity to pursue their interests and achieve new heights. Offering twenty-three athletic teams and close to fifty co-curricular activities, over 91% of the student body is involved in the school’s athletic and co-curricular opportunities.

New Providence High School will continue to prepare students to meet the challenging demands of today’s changing world. The school’s successes reflect positively on the continued support of the community. This support is much appreciated and welcomed as NPHS continues to function in the forefront of schools in Union County and in the state of New Jersey.
