Dear Parent and Guardian(s):
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It is with much enthusiasm that I have the privilege of serving as your principal. I am very excited about the school year and its potential. I look forward to working with every member of our school community as well as continuing to build on the successes of our previous school year.
We are focused on ensuring our students have a great educational experience at Barringer High School. We have increased our Career and Technical Education program to include an Automotive Tech program in conjunction with Lincoln Tech and are increasing the number of students in Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment programs. Please visit our website at https://www.nps.k12.nj.us/barringer/ for updated information.
I cannot emphasize enough my concern and dedication to all of our students. I am committed to ensuring that every student will have a strong academic foundation that equips them for success in college and countless post-secondary endeavors. Hence, I am strongly committed to ensuring that every student has the support, motivation and quality instruction they need to meet and exceed NJ Student Learning Standards.
The first day back of school is Tuesday, September 6, 2023, and I have exciting academic plans for all of our students. We are offering a more robust college to career curriculum, such as offering Essex County College Core courses at Barringer, music and video technology, carpentry, cyber security and JROTC, and creating co-curricular activities such as the Blue Bear ambassadors, dance, step, student council and peer mentoring to name a few. We will continue to improve our comprehensive support and intervention programs in order to help all students achieve academic excellence and overcome obstacles. Our school will continue to ensure a safe, nurturing and positive learning environment that will promote the social and emotional growth of every student.
I look forward to a wonderful school year and serving all stakeholders to ensure the success of our students.
Barringer High School
