Delran High School Broadcast

July 23, 2018

To the Class of 2022!

A message from Mr. Finkle:


I hope you are enjoying your summer and looking forward to your child's transition to Delran High School. The staff and returning students are very excited about meeting and working with your child in just a matter of weeks.


The DHS Broadcast will be sent approximately every other week to update you on the happenings here at DHS so be sure to look for it on Thursdays! I tweet it out as well as post in on Facebook. You will also receive an email with a link to the Broadcast for those who are not Social Media fans. My Twitter is @DelranHS_Princ and my Facebook name is Dhs Principal.


We understand that some maybe somewhat nervous about attending a new school and adjusting to changes from previous schools. Don’t worry! To make everyone more comfortable on the first day, we have prepared an Orientation Program on Wednesday, August 29th at 8:45am in the Morris R. Burton Performing Arts Center (The PAC). The program will conclude at 1:30pm. Please make arrangements for your child's transportation for this orientation.


The program will consist of:

  • A welcome by the Administration, Guidance Department, and Class Advisors who will welcome your child to DHS.

  • A tour of the building so that your child can become familiar with the location of their homeroom and other classrooms your child will be using during the year. We will be providing your child with his/her class schedule!

  • A yearbook portrait and school ID photo will be taken. HERE are the packages available. You will receive a letter with all of this information later in the summer.

  • A Club Fair where our present club and activity members will be available to answer questions about their activity and how to get involved.

  • A program presented by our Peer Leaders who will work with your child throughout the school year and help make the transition to DHS smooth.


The parent portion of the program will begin at 12:45pm and will conclude at 1:30pm to coincide with the close of the orientation for your child.


If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me at dfinkle@delranschools.org or (856) 461-6100 x3005.

DELRAN HIGH SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT

Delran High School, an inclusive learning community, provides educational opportunities for intellectual development, while valuing the importance of cultural diversity and tradition.



We believe:

  • that Delran High School will be a supportive and safe school environment where all students can pursue academic, social, artistic and athletic interests.

  • that all students will develop the skills needed to solve problems, think critically, communicate effectively, exhibit appropriate social behavior, maintain a state of mental and physical well-being, and to be personally accountable.

  • that all students will be given the opportunities to understand the interrelationship between fine, performing, and practical arts and traditional academic areas.

  • that all students will have the confidence to apply the latest technology to all their endeavors.

  • that education will take place inside and outside of our classrooms and that both are integral to a balanced and rich educational experience.


We will accomplish this through an inclusive and rigorous curriculum as well as a complete program of co-curricular activities.

Athletic News

Fall 2018 Athletic Registration

Delran High School Fall 2018 athletic registration is now open. DHS is no longer using ATS for the registration process. Delran High School is using FamilyID to collect all of the paperwork that NJSIAA and DHS require for participation. Registration for Fall 2018 is open. This will provide DHS with enough time for the school physician to approve all physicals and for the documents to be reviewed for completion. Click here to go to the FamilyID athletic registration landing page. Once on the athletic landing page, you must sign into your account if you already have students registered through FamilyID at Delran High School. If you have never registered in FamilyID, please complete the registration process described above. In order for your son/daughter to participate in athletics at Delran High School, all documents must be electronically signed and have a valid physical on file.


If you have any questions or difficulty with registration, please do not hesitate to contact Susan Jordan in the main office or Anthony Guidotti, the Director of Athletics.
