  • Eric LeGrand Visits New Providence

     
    On May 18th, 2015, New Providence High School and Middle School students were honored with a presentation by Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers University football star who sustained a C3 and C4 vertebrae injury in 2010. We were excited to welcome Eric to NPHS/NPMS to speak to our students about what it means to overcome obstacles and adversity and to truly “Be the Difference.”

    While this injury ended his football career, it launched Eric's dedication and commitment to give back to the community and inspire those living with and impacted by paralysis. Team LeGrand was launched in September 2013 as a fundraising arm for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation to advance care and discover cures for paralysis, as well as continue the legacy of the late Christopher Reeve. During this assembly, the PTSA presented a donation of over $800 to the Team LeGrand raised through the Jersey Mike’s fundraiser held in April.

  • NPHS Students Lend a Hand 
     
    On April 1st, almost 40 NPHS students, many from the Baseball team and Biology club, grabbed their rakes, gloves and working shoes to help out in downtown New Providence. The students enjoyed cleaning up at the Salt Box museum, Centennial Park, the town Library and the Senior Center. They worked hard, got their hands dirty and felt good helping out their town. The greatest part of the day was watching the kids come back in to the school. After working for 2-plus hours, they were smiling and describing how much fun they had helping out. All of the students sacrificed their time at school to help out in their community, and it was strictly volunteer! Click here to read the article in TAP.

Welcome

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.
