Boonton High School
Boonton High School has its challenges- However it gets a really bad reputation that is not deserved. Our test scores may not be up to neighboring towns, but if you are an involved parent, communicate regularly with teachers and administrators, and make sure your kids are doing their work- your child will get a good education. The key is to stay involved, voice your opinion, and make sure you communicate! Being a bright, well rounded fish in a well diversified small pond is better than being a upper middle class fish who looks just like every other fish in the pond!
