Welcome to the start of the school year in the Morris Hills Regional District. MHRD is committed to the health and social-emotional well being of all our students and staff members. With that being said, we are ready to go and can not wait for another successful year of teaching and learning. Our district is dedicated to the success of all students as we continue to explore innovative ways to deliver a wide range of educational experiences for the upcoming school year.
We are entering our eleventh year as a School Choice District, wherein we accept a limited number of out-of-district students. This program is a great opportunity to generate revenue and to open available seats for students seeking the educational opportunities offered by our district. The revenue generated helps fund programs available to all students.
The district offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program for qualified students at the Morris Knolls campus, the Magnet Program for Mathematics and Science at both the Morris Hills and Morris Knolls campuses, the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) College Readiness System, also located at Morris Hills, as well as the Aviation and Aerospace Program available at both Morris Hills and Morris Knolls High Schools. Students from all four sending districts are eligible to apply for any one of our programs.
It is through the continued support from our communities that we are able to provide educational excellence to all of our students. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to a healthy and successful school year.
