Our award winning Music and Performing Arts programs include Dance, Choir, Band, Marching Band, Drama and Musical Productions.  If we can’t meet a student’s interest, we will consider adding it to our already impressive list.

Teachers

Learning is at the heart of all we do in the GEHRHSD. To help ensure teaching and learning occur at the highest levels, our educators engage in a cycle of continuous learning that includes use of data to determine student and educator learning needs, identification of shared goals for student and educator learning, professional learning to extend educators’ knowledge of content, content-specific pedagogy, how students learn, and management of classroom environments. This year, we continue to focus on aligning professional learning and support to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards , the (NGSS), and English Language Learner Frameworks, including the Literacy Standards for Science, History/Social Studies and the Technical Subjects—in all content areas. In addition, we continue to focus on refining and creating new courses and pathways in the Career Technical Subjects (CTE) as well as working with our post-secondary partners including local colleges and universities to ensure our st

Post high school

At Cedar Creek High School, 81% of the Class of 2019 attended college, 5% enlisted in the Military, and 15% enrolled in a Technical Trade Program and/or workforce. We host parent and student workshops to assist families in exploring postsecondary options and in completing the FAFSA. We host College Admissions Night Programs for parents to assist with the college application process and Get It Done Workshops for parents and students to attend and complete college and job applications. We order and provide fee waivers for students to take the SAT and ACT. We are a school based testing center for students who test with accommodations and we are an SAT Test center for the convenience of our students who cannot travel.

Supports

Learning is fostered through the development of skills that enable students to function effectively in a changing society. Instruction is developed on the firm belief that every student can learn. Our district offers academic enrichment courses and after school supports for struggling learners. Students with disabilities are enrolled in courses based on their Individualized Education Program (IEP). All courses follow the General Education College Prep Curriculum with use of modifications and adaptations on an individual basis. English Language Learners rapidly progress in English language acquisition through highly structured course delivered by a caring and committed staff of educators. Counselors work collaboratively to support the learning process and promote academic achievement and social wellbeing with consideration of student ability and learning style. Counselors regularly monitor students' courses and accumulation of credits to ensure they are meeting graduation requirements.

Health

Greater Egg Harbor Regional understands the importance of physical and mental health and wellness. Our students receive a Health and Wellness curriculum that includes Goal Specific Fitness, Movement for a Healthy Lifestyle and Sports Medicine. Our district works in collaboration with local agencies to provide a comprehensive system of support. We have been proactive in educating students about Mental Health and Suicide Prevention by implementing an Emotional Health and Suicide Prevention Curriculum in Grade 9 English, Social Studies and Health courses. All Teachers and Administrators at Greater Egg will receive training in Mental Health Youth First Aid, a public education program that introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents and teaches of the importance of early intervention to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge.

Parents

The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) meets 3 times a year, once in each building. Parents receive invitations to attend meetings on best practices for students in need of support. The meetings consist of building and program updates, presentations from outside agencies, and a host of resources to educate parents on how to provide academic and social emotional support.

Facilities

Cedar Creek High School opened in 2010 and has not had any major renovations. Cedar Creek is a spacious building full of natural light. Cedar Creek is equipped with the most up to date technology and state-of-the-art facilities for art, drama, chorus, music dance, and media.

School safety

Creating and maintaining a safe environment for all students and staff is our district’s highest priority. We have an armed school resource officer in each school as well as security personnel scheduled during the day, after school, evenings and weekends. We have a new video surveillance camera system linked to our police departments. New technology is in place for students to anonymously report their concerns to school administrators. In addition, we have a security application that immediately locks down our schools in the event of a school emergency with INSTANT notification to police. Most importantly, we include students and staff in our ongoing dialog following security drills to further refine school safety procedures.

Technology

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) offerings in our schools are unique interdisciplinary experiences for students. The Magnet Programs offer a comprehensive suite of courses arranged into several pathways of learning such as Engineering, Environmental Science, Biomedical Science, Homeland Security and Public Safety, and Computer Science and Network Technology. Up-incoming 9th grade students that apply to the Magnet Programs will commit to a four-year program of study that requires additional STEM coursework yet is flexible enough to allow for non-STEM electives. Students are immersed in coursework that requires the use of sophisticated technology, integrated projects, professional mentorships, and community service projects while participating in the program and after school clubs. Graduates of the Magnet Program go on to continue their education and research at some of the most prestigious colleges and universities across the country!

More

Cedar Creek High School created a Peer Tutoring Program to assist students who are struggling in all subject areas. Our new club, Peer to Peer, was introduced to allow students to have a place to meet with other students who may need support adjusting to school, fitting in socially, and/or looking for ways to connect with other students in a positive environment. We communicate with parents via school messenger, school website, and a newsletter that is generated each trimester with important information and upcoming events.
