New Breakfast Item

November 18th, 2013

As a courtesy to our students, the NWR cafeteria will now offer a “boxed breakfast” entree in addition to the breakfast sandwich and bagels in the morning from 7:00 am until 7:30 am. The regular price of the “boxed breakfast” will be $2.00. 

Students who qualify for free lunches will also qualify to have the “boxed breakfast” for free. Students who pay a reduced price for lunch will be charged $0.25 for the “boxed breakfast.” If your child/ren wish to purchase the “boxed lunch” item, they can scan their ID tags or use their lunch number to purchase. Once at the register, the item will ring up either free or reduced price. 

Please note, if your child wishes to purchase one of the other breakfast items, they will be charged the full price. 

North Warren believes that students who have a healthy breakfast in the morning perform better and we hope that this new item will help all our students achieve to their full potential!

North Warren Designated “One of America’s Best High Schools”

May 9th, 2013

North Warren Regional School District in Blairstown, NJ is very proud to have been designated by Newsweek and the Daily Beast as one of America’s Best High Schools!

The designations are based on 2011-12 data. 5000 high schools were invited to participate, 2500 responded and the top 2000 have been designated. North Warren ranked 1426 on the list. This is the first time that North Warren has received this designation.

The methodology is weighted as follows:
- 25% for 4 year, on time graduation rate for 2012.
- 25% for percentage of 2011 graduates who were accepted to a 2 or 4 year college.
- 25% for AP/IB/AICE test per student.
- 10% for the average AP/IB/AICE score
- 10% for Average SAT/ACT score.
- 5% for percent of students enrolled in at least 1 AP/IB/AICE course.

There were 93 high schools in New Jersey to make the list, and North Warren is the only high school recognized from Warren and Sussex counties.

This award adds to other recent accolades for the school. In 2010, New Jersey Monthly magazine designated North Warren as one of the “10 Most Improved High Schools” in New Jersey, and last fall, Inside Jersey ranked North Warren as the top high school in Warren County.

We are very proud of our students and staff for achieving at levels that earned this distinction.
