The Delaware Valley Regional High School District can be found in the heart of pastoral and beautiful Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The District serves students in grades nine through twelve who reside in the five municipalities that comprise our region: Alexandria Township, Frenchtown Borough, Holland Township, Kingwood Township, and Milford Borough.
We are extremely proud to announce that in September 2017, our district was certified as a “Future Ready School – NJ.” We are very proud to be one of the select schools across the state, and the only school in Hunterdon County, who have earned this recognition in the inaugural cycle. The Future Ready Schools – NJ Certification Program recognizes “New Jersey schools that are dedicated to best preparing their students for success in college, career, and citizenship in the digital age.” Districts earn certification by “taking actions that lead to success in the Future Ready Schools - New Jersey indicators of Future Readiness.”
The District benefits from a smaller student enrollment, which consists of approximately 850 young men and women. As such, Delaware Valley appreciates a strong sense of community and family; our students are our center. Our first priority is the growth, success, and well being of each of these fine young men and women. We are fundamentally committed to prepare our pupils for their life pursuits through focused leadership, an engaging program, a positive school culture, and school-wide pride.
At Delaware Valley we maintain a rigorous academic program that includes Advanced Placement, career cluster academies, and concurrent enrollment programs. The largely successful Computer Science and Software Engineering Academy in conjunction with the Hunterdon County Vocational School District has reached level three in a four-year rollout. For 2017/2018 Delaware Valley has added two new local academies, as well: Bio-medical Science and Engineering. Our concurrent enrollment programs in partnership with Raritan Valley Community College and Seton Hall University allow our upperclassmen to obtain college credits for courses taken at Delaware Valley. This year, students in predetermined English and History classes may finish the course with a college transcript in hand at a mere fraction of the cost of the standard tuition rates, all in the comfort of their own classrooms. We are very proud of our faculty members who have met the stringent criteria required to serve as our in-house university adjunct professors.
We continue to administer the PSATs for students in grades 9-11. Younger students will benefit through the exposure to more advanced course material, while upperclassmen will have greater preparation for the SAT. Results allow the district to connect student growth from year to year and to acquire historic data for comprehensive student performance analysis.
Delaware Valley Regional High School has made a concerted effort to recognize the achievements, strengths, and talents of all of our students. We appreciate that success comes in many shapes and forms, and we acknowledge that students are not merely their test scores. Award winning scholars, musicians, athletes, artists, actors, writers, trusted leaders, and philanthropists can all be found within our halls and classrooms. Students are featured each month at Board of Education meetings, and are publicly recognized for their contributions to their programs and/or our school community. Our website and active social media pages provide viewers a glimpse into our exceptional student body.
The region stretches 90 square miles, and provides full transportation to and from school each day. “Late” buses transport pupils home from after school activities twice per week. Delaware Valley Regional High School partners with the three transporting elementary districts, Alexandria Township, Holland Township, and Kingwood Township to form the “Transportation Jointure.” The Jointure historically ranks #1 in efficiency in Hunterdon County and within the top ten across the entire state.
In an effort to contain costs, the Delaware Valley Regional High School Board of Education prides itself on its commitment to “Acting Like a K-12” through the sharing of professional and educational services. Our Superintendent and School Business Administrator also serve in their respective roles at Frenchtown Elementary School District through shared administrative services agreements. Our Transportation Department provides services not only through the Jointure, but also to several public school districts in and out of Hunterdon County. Our Technology Department serves both public schools and municipal government throughout the county, as well.
We thank the faculty, staff, students, parents, and community for their continued support, and look forward to another successful year at Delaware Valley Regional High School. If you are interested in learning more about our District, please visit our website at www.dvrhs.org.
