Educators have long recognized that young people have individual needs and interests. The program of studies at Sparta High School is designed to provide educational opportunities, taking into consideration individual interests, abilities, and ambitions. It is also designed to ensure a sound basic education.

This course catalog booklet has been prepared to assist students and parents in the course selection process. The program of studies you select will determine not only the degree to which you utilize the offerings of the school, but also the educational and career opportunities available to you upon graduation.

School counselors will meet individually with each student in grades 9, 10, and 11 to select a program of appropriate courses for the next school year. Each student will be provided with a course selection sheet which outlines the curriculum for the following academic year. This course selection sheet should be reviewed and completed by the student, parent, and school counselor.

Please carefully examine the course descriptions prior to making your decisions. As questions arise, please feel free to contact the Sparta High School Guidance Department at (973) 729-5150. The Sparta High School counselors welcome the opportunity to discuss your educational plans and options. Find us also at
