Choose PHS

The Paramus High School education team is quick to recognize the tremendous impact the high school years make on the lives of young people intellectually, socially, and physically. We realize that education is not a one-size-fits-all commodity; therefore, we have selected a variety of academic and co-curricular activities to enhance the educational opportunities of our students.


In addition to traditional core academic courses, qualified students have the opportunity to enroll in Advanced Placement courses, take a major sequence of courses in business and the arts, or attend the Central Technical Education Center, a shared-time, vocationally-oriented facility. Small class sizes and attention to individual student differences are of primary importance in the development of programs at Paramus High School.
