ATTENDANCE AREA: Mount Laurel
Lenape High School opened in 1958 on a 53-acre plot of land in Medford and since that time has undergone multiple renovations to accommodate the educational needs of the sprawling community of Mount Laurel. Students attend classes throughout the campus providing them with the distinct advantages of both a large high school and smaller learning communities. The faculty and services for students in grades 9-10, in the North building, focus on transition to high school; while the faculty and services in the South Building focus on postsecondary success.
Recognizing that academics, athletics, culture and the arts as well as community service are integral to students success in high school and beyond, Lenape High School offers a comprehensive curriculum and breadth of extra-curricular activities.
With a graduation rate of 98 percent, student academic achievement, measured by assessments such as the SAT and the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA), consistently exceeds state and national averages, which is reflective of the district as a whole. In the 2010/2011 school year, Lenapes students posted eleven perfect 800 SAT scores and twenty-three gold medal award winners for the National Latin exam with one student scoring a perfect score. Additionally, three students were recognized as a National Merit Scholar.
Lenape fosters and recognizes academic success, engaging and encouraging students at all levels to expand their scholastic horizons. Notable last school year, the Lenape Deborah Heart Challenge Team posted its sixth consecutive win. Extra-curricular science and math clubs and teams also thrive at Lenape High School through activities such as Knowledge team and Chemistry Outreach Program. The 2010/2011 school year also served as the third year for the robotics team, the Storm, which was funded in part by a grant from NASA. Comprised of more than 100 students from Lenape High School and Cherokee High School, the Storm was recognized as the National Award Winner for the Best Rookie Team in 2009.
Lenape High Schools music department had a standout year as the schools Marching Band was named state champions for the fourth consecutive year and the chorus sent two students to the 2010 All State Chorus. The school-wide March for Martin in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., served as an inspiration to all who participated and attended.
Recognized as a perennial athletic powerhouse, Lenape High School brought home a state championship in girls soccer for the fourth consecutive year while the girls indoor track won the Group IV New Jersey State Relay title.
Community service broadens the horizons of students and staff beyond the schools campus to touch the lives of individuals of all ages and backgrounds. From implementing a Lenape Senior Day of Service throughout the Mt. Laurel community to cleaning up the retirement community of Holiday Village to Lenapes Give Kids the World trip in Kissimmee, Florida, Lenape High School students are active members of the greater community.
