If you are interested in NJROTC and have a 2.5 GPA, you can enroll directly into a Naval Science III or IV class. You can talk to Major Davis, Master Chief Melonas or your guidance counselor about adding NJROTC to your schedule for next year!

Dear Parent and Student,
Juniors will take the SAT on April 9, 2019 at Widefield High School. We will register all juniors March 18-22, 2019 through their American History classes. There is a portion of the registration that asks for personal information – Student Data Questionnaire. This portion of the registration is optional but does assist with students’ post-secondary planning, especially for college admissions.
In order for your junior student to complete the Student Data Questionnaire, the student must sign the Student Data Consent form that is attached to this email. A hard copy will be given to the student during registration March 19-23. Please read over the consent. If you want your student to complete the Student Data Questionnaire, then please have your student sign the questionnaire on their registration day.
