A Message from Dr. David L. Heisey

  • Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School is a four-year comprehensive high school with an enrollment that reflects the diversity of our nation. Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School strives to be a harmonious educational community committed to excellence in developing each member's potential. Within our environment, we consider students to be valued individuals, with unique aptitudes, attitudes, interests and needs. Our comprehensive high school fosters each individual's potential by providing programs and opportunities for academic, emotional, creative, physical, and social growth. Continuing education is a priority in our school community where a well-educated staff models the benefits of life-long learning.

    Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School offers students a curriculum of substance and courses that require students to complete serious and relevant work. Teachers use instructional strategies that engage students and include them in the learning process. The high school supports a climate that values teaching and learning, a climate in which academics are honored and distractions that interfere with teaching and learning are not tolerated. We believe the educational process ultimately depends upon the combined efforts of administration, faculty, students, parents, and the community-at-large. We believe continuous evaluation is needed to assure that our resources are used wisely.
