My experience at Hackensack high school was amazing! I was a new transfer student from Staten Island New York , who was struggling. I arrived at Hackensack high , the teachers were so caring and outgoing. They truly cared to help their students. The diversity levels were great , I was exposed to many different students of different races and nationalities. My overal experience was very memorable and has a big effect on my future successes. I can’ t describe in words alone how great of a school it is , from sports to academics. I also did track my sophomore year and junior year which helped me stay fit and make a bunch of new friends for life! I loved and I don’t think the faculty receives enough credit for their hard work and efforts in helping us master what we are studying!

Even though it’s a huge high school your teachers took an interest in every one of there students. Everyone in the facility new majority of the students name. It made you feel like family. They also kept the parents involved with students academics & progress.
