The Fallsburg Junior-Senior High School serves approximately 600 students in grades 7 – 12 in a welcoming, safe environment. The program in the junior high school, grades 7 and 8, allows our students to become academically and socially prepared for the rigors of high school. All programs and materials are aligned to the Common Core standards. In addition to classes, the junior high students participate in both the OLWEUS and PBIS programs.
The high school program, in grades 9 – 12, prepares our students to be successful both in their high school years and far beyond. Besides our academic programs, great emphasis is placed on both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, as well as developing leadership skills and fostering community service. Seventy-five percent of Fallsburg graduates go on to college, and over $25,000 is awarded annually, through community-based scholarships, to deserving students.
The students are guided throughout their junior and senior high school years by a dedicating, caring faculty and staff that places the needs of the students and community above all else.
The typical school day runs from 8:05 AM until 2:52 PM. The junior-senior high school currently offers a number of after school activities, in our Extended Day program, to meet all needs, including academic assistance, sports tutorials and various enrichment activities, such as art or dance. Additionally, several sports teams function throughout each season and are always looking for new, motivated athletes to participate.
Our building motto is “Effort Equals Excellence.” We strive to maximize the efforts of all school stakeholders (students, staff, teachers, administrators and parents) to enable our students to function at their highest levels. We believe that no success can be achieved without hard work and a dedication to excellence!
Communication is critical for the benefit of your child. Please feel free to call the school at any time if you need assistance, and don't hesitate to call and meet with your child's teachers to insure their success. Additionally, I am often in need of parents to serve on various committees throughout the school year, and if that is of interest to you, I encourage you to become involved. Together, we can help all of our students be successful!
