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.
