Audubon High School

Audubon High School Audubon High School was opened in September 1926, and had 500 students. The school developed into a full six-year high school, with seventh, eighth and ninth grades being taught at the junior high school and tenth through twelfth grade at the senior high school. The school is ranked in the top 10 high schools of Camden County in a report released by the Star Ledger.

Audubon High School is fully accredited and approved by the New Jersey Department of Education. The major goal of the school is growth for the individual, according to the school’s website. They seek to give all students the opportunity to grow intellectually, socially, physically and morally.

Students at Audubon High School study subjects such as Language Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Business Education, World Languages, Fine and Performing Arts, Art, Music, Technology Education, and Health and Physical Education. Audubon also offers various AP courses including Advanced Chemistry, Calculus, English Literature and Composition and US History.

Recently added at AHS, the Journalism/Creative Writing course produced The Word, “a magazine devoted to the collective voice of staff.” Contributors include Josh Bicking, Shayla Boone, Megan Colon, Kyle Hauske, Brandon Lanchang, Terri Powers, Emily Lutz, Lauren Caja, Eric Schorr, Tyler Capner and Mac McClernan.

The Audubon High School Student Council includes students that represent the entire student body to the Administration, Faculty, and Board of Education, while encouraging growth in both citizenship and leadership for the students. Along with this, the council participates in many community service projects, such as the Blood Mobile and the Senior Citizens’ Party, and sponsors activities like dances, Homecoming festivities, the Winter Ball, and Spirit Week.

According to the school’s website, “STARS (Students and Teachers against Racism and Stereotypes) is an organization whose objective is to break down all types of discrimination and stereotyping through interaction with students from other schools, educational projects at AHS, discussion groups, and other projects. STARS looks for students who can lead by example both inside and outside of school, people who would like to improve themselves and have others improve themselves, and people who are willing to make friends with people who are different from themselves.”

Athletics offered at the school include Football, Cross Country, Soccer, Cheerleading, Field Hockey, Tennis, Basketball, Wrestling, Swimming, Indoor Track, Baseball, Golf and Softball.
