We host an annual college fair that provides students the opportunity to meet with college admission officers at the high school, and a college readiness night to answer questions about financial aid and college preparedness. Alumni currently attending college return to host an alumni panel to share their real-world experience and answer current students’ questions. Future plans for students include two and four-year colleges and universities, branches of the military service, and business and trade schools.

Pemberton Township High School utilizes the platform Genesis and the parent portal. The Genesis Parent Portal enables families to access their child’s grades, attendance, interim progress reports, report cards, and other important information online. Web access to the Parent Portal is completely secure. Access is set up for individual families and limited to their child's records only. We encourage active parent participation in student learning and establish regular, meaningful communication between home and school. One of our primary goals is to collaborate with parents to ensure that children have a supportive learning environment at school and at home. We invite parents to act as full partners in making school decisions that affect their children and families.

Pemberton Township High School built in 1975 and expanded in 1991. Both girls and boys locker rooms have been updated with new rubber antimicrobial flooring throughout the locker room, new tile flooring and plumbing fixtures in the bathrooms and shower areas, and new partitions throughout the locker rooms. The locker rooms were painted throughout. Also at the high school, a new sodded V soccer field was installed giving the Pemberton athletes the safest, best possible playing surface possible. We provided our students in the Arts with a brand new stage performance floor and improved lighting with LED lights in two main foyer areas. Significant upgrades were made to our security systems including a designated secure visitor vestibule, upgraded surveillance cameras, exterior lighting, signage and other major updates to security systems.
