AHA - A Blue Ribbon School
What the U.S. Department of Education said about AHA:
"From student focus and support of professional community, school organization and culture to leadership and educational vitality, this school is exemplary in every way. Goals and objectives flow from the school's vision, examples and participation rates in programs and services present concrete evidence that the school is committed to student success. The school culture is pervasive in all it does. It has been recognized as one of the leading schools in New Jersey in providing engaged service learning. Collective inquiry, reflection and responsible decision-making are daily occurrences as teachers and students continue to enhance their learning for the sake of higher achievement. The curriculum is based on knowledge of effective practice and student data. High levels of learning are evidenced by assessment data, honors and awards received, and an extraordinarily high rate of 4-year college attendance. This is a school that exudes a love of each other and of learning, rooted in the school's tradition of compassion, peace and justice."
