Hoboken District Looking to add 7th Grade to High School

Claire Moses of Hoboken Patch reports that The Hoboken Board of Education is looking to move the seventh grade into the high school. A public meeting to discuss this with parents will be held.

The Board of Education is considering a plan in which Hoboken's seventh graders would move into the High School for the 2013-2014 school year. 
Rather than adopting a middle school model in the district —the district administration indicates they are looking into an option of a junior-senior high school.
The seventh graders would be able to use the high school's resources, but won't be in class with the high schoolers, according to administrators.
Before a decision will be made, parents will have the opportunity to comment. A forum will be scheduled for the last week of February.
