About Our School
The year, 1838, Nathan Hedges opened the doors to a drafty, old building so that a motley group of boys would receive an education beyond primary school. By conducting the first high school program in the state, and the third to be established in the United States, Mr. Hedges unwittingly became a part of New Jersey history.
Originally labeled Newark High, the school’s name was later changed to Barringer High School.
So Our Alma Mater proud, Famed in song and story
Hide between the sailing clouds, Catch the sunset glory.
Barringer High, Our name, we raise,
Long may we grow and prosper.
Through the years, We pledge thee praise,
Loyal to Our Barringer.

2022 PACE-FM Program
It is with great pleasure that we announce
from Barringer High School won second place in the PACE-FM Program from Prudential.
This year the Prudential Actuarial Career Exploration and Financial Management program (PACE-FM) received more nominations than ever! Eighty-eight nominations were received from 14 high schools. This year's nominated students were extremely competitive in their qualifications, and after a lengthy deliberation, 16 Newark 11th grade students were selected to participate in this year's cohort. After three days of meeting virtually with numerous representatives of Prudential, including Senior Vice-Presidents, members of the Talent Development Team, Actuaries, and various Financial Management specialists, students participated in the program's culminating event: a Case Competition.
During the Case Competition, students made presentations that showcased their speaking abilities, analytical skills, knowledge of Excel, and learnings about financial management, retirement, and the insurance industry. Students were divided into teams of 2 and made their presentations before judges selected by Prudential. All of the presentations were AMAZING! The judges all agreed that all teams were extremely competitive.
In the end, 2 teams were selected for the 1st Place and 2nd Place standing.
