  • SEL March Madness Challenge

    SEL As we welcome in March we also welcome the first day of spring, longer days, warmer weather, and of course MARCH MADNESS!  However, this year March Madness isn't just about basketball - it's about SEL as well! 

    What is S(ocial) E(motional) L(earning)?  

    It means taking care of yourself by developing the knowledge, skills and abilities to set and achieve goals, develop and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. 

    Being that March celebrates both International SEL Day (on the 26th) and college basketball (all month long) there is no better time to challenge ourselves to make SEL intentional.  

    We challenge our students and families to practice SEL all month long using the Student/Family SEL Challenge bracket for guidance.  On the bracket you’ll find fun and meaningful activities to incorporate SEL in your life.  

    Information and ideas will be continually shared throughout the month, culminating in an exciting S-E-L-F(ie) weekend with special prizes and activities!  It’s MARCH MADNESS baby!

    Principal's Message

    Recognized for excellence in Academics, the Arts, and Athletics, New Providence High School provides students with a wide range of experiences and opportunities designed to promote intellectual, social, and emotional growth. Our commitment to education has been recognized through many accolades.  We continue to be recognized as one of the top high schools in the state of New Jersey.  Additionally, we were recognized as a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.  This is the highest recognition that a school can receive on the federal level.  These honors are a testament to the dedication of our students, faculty and community.

    NPHS students are able to choose from a wide array of academic course offerings designed to challenge them at appropriate levels of ability.  Twenty-three Advanced Placement and fifteen 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 partnerships continue with Japan for over 20 years.  These programs have given students invaluable insight into different cultures as well as practical application of what they have learned in the classroom.

    Incorporating service learning opportunities into the fabric of the 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 programs, invitations to design banners and logos for community organizations both challenge and reward students’ creativity.  These activities give New Providence High School students an opportunity to give back and show appreciation for all they are given.  Furthermore, these experiences demonstrate what can be achieved when parents, students, teachers and community members work cooperatively.

    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 nearly forty co-curricular activities, over 92% of the student body is involved in the school’s athletic and co-curricular opportunities.  Our Technology Student Association won first place in technology problem solving and second place in structural design engineering and music production in a New Jersey State competition.  NPHS STEM league students also placed first at the STEM League Competition in Bloomfield, also winning most creative prototype and best overall prototype design. They also placed in the top three at the Annual UCC Bridge Building Competition.  Our Girls’ Tennis, Girls’ Cross Country, Girls’ Basketball, Boys’ Cross Country, Boys’ Tennis and Boys’ Lacrosse teams were all Conference Champions.  Our Girls’ Cross Country, Girls’ Tennis, Girls’ Basketball and Boys’ Tennis teams were also State Sectional Champions.

    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 at the forefront of schools in Union County and in the state of New Jersey.
