Dumont High School

Dumont High School is a four-year comprehensive public high school that serves students in ninth through twelfth grade from Dumont, in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States, operating as part of the Dumont Public Schools.

The current Dumont High School opened in 1932. The original high school was founded in 1918 and located at what is now the Dumont Municipal Building. In 1961, construction on the current building yielded a new gymnasium, a library, over 20 classrooms, and a cafeteria. Another addition was added to the school in 2007. A state-of-the-art media center, modern science labs, and an elevator were part of the new construction. The school operates under the authority of the New Jersey Department of Education and has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools since 1939.

As of the 2010-11 school year, the school had an enrollment of 895 students and 64.8 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 13.81:1. There were 62 students (6.9% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 18 (2.0% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.

Famous quotes containing the words school and/or high:

    It was Mabbie without the grammar school gates.
    And Mabbie was all of seven.
    And Mabbie was cut from a chocolate bar.
    And Mabbie thought life was heaven.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    Who dreamed that beauty passes like a dream?
    For these red lips, with all their mournful pride,
    Mournful that no new wonder may betide,
    Troy passed away in one high funeral gleam,
    And Usna’s children died.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
