Moorestown High School is a four-year comprehensive public high school that serves students in ninth through twelfth grades from Moorestown in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States, operating as the lone secondary school of the Moorestown Township Public Schools. Moorestown High School was established in 1904 and recently completed a $12.9 million renovation and addition project, providing a modern, state-of-the-art facility.[3]

As of the 2014-15 school year, the school had an enrollment of 1,337 students and 114.1 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 11.7:1. There were 92 students (6.9% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 32 (2.4% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[1]

Moorestown High School was involved in the 2003 lawsuit Hornstine v. Moorestown, which involved school policies to prevent a student from becoming valedictorian because of her Individualized Education Program.

The first goal of Moorestown High School is to foster a school climate of mutual respect and dignify for all high school students and staff by providing the opportunity to learn in a non-threatening environment. A second goal is the continuance of educational technology application to all school programs by enabling students to access technological advances. Community standards and the expectations which the students bring to the school encourage participation.[4]

Awards, recognition and rankings[edit]

For the 1999-2000 school year, Moorestown High School was awarded the Blue Ribbon School Award of Excellence by the United States Department of Education,[5] the highest award an American school can receive.[6][7]

The school was the 14th-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 339 schools statewide in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2014 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", using a new ranking methodology.[8] The school had been ranked 27th in the state of 328 schools in 2012, after being ranked 39th in 2010 out of 322 schools listed.[9] Moorestown High School is by far the highest ranked school in Burlington County. The magazine ranked the school 47th in 2008 out of 316 schools.[10] Schooldigger.com ranked the school tied for 93rd out of 381 public high schools statewide in its 2011 rankings (a decrease of 16 positions from the 2010 ranking) which were based on the combined percentage of students classified as proficient or above proficient on the mathematics (89.0%) and language arts literacy (94.8%) components of the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA).[11]

In its 2013 report on "America's Best High Schools", The Daily Beast ranked the school 474th in the nation among participating public high schools and 40th among schools in New Jersey.[12]

In its listing of "America's Best High Schools 2016", the school was ranked 112th out of 500 best high schools in the country; it was ranked 21st among all high schools in New Jersey and eighth among the state's non-magnet schools.[13]

Among all of the state's Group III programs, MHS was ranked 2nd in 2006 (one point behind Ramapo High School),[17] 2nd in 2007[18] and was the Group III winner in 2008, with performances that included first-place finishes that season in football, both boys and girls lacrosse, and boys tennis.[19]

He was a dominant inside player for Hall of Fame coach Pete Monska on teams that went unbeaten and won State Group 3 championships in 1958 and 1959. He was a steady scorer for the Quakers but his main contribution was his outstanding rebounding and defensive ability. In college, he opted for football where he was a two-way player at Penn State under fabled coach Rip Engle. He earned All-American honors at Penn State and in 1997 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. He was a first round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers and became an integral member of Vince Lombardi's teams that captured the 1965 NFL championship and Super Bowls I and II.

The Moorestown standout missed his first three shots against Hamilton on March 3, 1959. But using a dazzling array of jump shots and some good, honest-to-goodness free throw shooting, he ended up with a county-record 84 points. Douglas was one of the area's deadliest shooters that season. On this night he was downright lethal. He had been averaging just over 30 points per game and had a 45-point effort against Palmyra earlier that winter. Against Hamilton he finished with 36 field goals and 12 free throws. Douglas nailed a pair of foul shots to reach 82 points, then capped the evening with a long-range basket for his final points. Despite the introduction of the 3-pointer into high school basketball in the late 1980s, no county scorer has come within 25 points of Douglas' record."
