Bordentown Regional High School is a comprehensive public high school that serves students in ninth through twelfth grades from five communities in northern Burlington County, New Jersey, United States, operating as the lone secondary school of the Bordentown Regional School District. The high school serves Bordentown City, Bordentown Township (where the school is located), and Fieldsboro Borough. The New Hanover Township School District, consisting of New Hanover Township and Wrightstown Borough, sends students to the Bordentown district on a tuition basis for grades 9-12 as part of a sending/receiving relationship.[3][4][5]

As of the 2018–19 school year, the school had an enrollment of 770 students and 53.8 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 14.3:1. There were 108 students (14.0% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 36 (4.7% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[1]

History

Bordentown Regional High School opened in 1965, succeeding William McFarland High School. It is the largest school in the Bordentown Regional School District, which was approved by voters in 1982.[6] Original plans to have a new high school building open in September 2005 had to be delayed after construction bids for the project opened in November 2003 came in substantially above the original estimate of $34 million.[7] With the project mostly completed at a cost of $36 million, the high school then relocated to its current building, opening for students on September 11, 2006, with the former high school building becoming Bordentown Regional Middle School.[8] Rowan College at Burlington County offers college-level courses and provides the opportunity to complete associate degree programs at the high school.[9]

Awards, recognition and rankings

The school was the 193rd-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 339 schools statewide in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2014 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", using a new ranking methodology.[10] The school had been ranked 200th in the state of 328 schools in 2012, after being ranked 218th in 2010 out of 322 schools listed.[11] The magazine ranked the school 208th in 2008 out of 316 schools.[12] The school was ranked 172nd in the magazine's September 2006 issue, which surveyed 316 schools across the state.[13]

The school received the Governor's School of Excellence Award in 2003; from 2000 to 2003 the number of violent acts in the school fell by 40% and graduation rates increased.[14]
