Congratulations to Hoboken Charter School’s 2011 eighth grade graduating class. Our graduates, many of whom started with us in pre-kindergarten, are preparing for their next academic step at numerous prestigious high schools in the area including Hoboken Charter High School, Saint Peter’s Prep, High Tech High School, Saint Dominic Academy, Bergen Catholic High School, McNair Academic High School, Holy Family Academy, Hudson Catholic High School and Saint Anthony High School. Many of these students have placed into the honors programs at the respective schools, and several scholarship offers have been made. We were proud to see our eighth graders (all of whom took algebra this year) exceed the national average of advanced proficient scoring for the algebra exam offered in high school and some eighth grade programs. Some students have subsequently placed out of honors algebra for their freshman year and will place into sophomore level advanced math as freshmen. We applaud their hard work and know that they will continue to make us proud in high school.
