Welcome to the Phillipsburg Alternative Secondary School.  For the last 10 years, we have served the “at-risk” students of the Phillipsburg School District.  As we begin our journey this year we continue to follow the same concept we used when the doors were first opened, which is to ”relax the atmosphere, but focus on the work.”  The teachers at P.A.S.S. believe that all students can learn if given meaningful and challenging work. 


At the Phillipsburg Alternative School a variety of instructional practices are implemented to help our students succeed.  They include:


  • A student teacher ratio of 15:1
  • Individualized Instructional Practices that address the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards
  • An Individual Program Plan (IPP) that focuses on attendance, behavior and helps each student meet academic goals
  • Credits based on the Program Completion Option
  • Support Services and programs which address each students health, social, emotional and behavioral needs
  • Community based learning experiences


Any interested Phillipsburg High School student should call me at (908) 916-2688 or contact me via email at rovi.kyle@pburgsd.net.
