Pitman High School
Principal’s Message from Dr. Cherie Hill Lombardo
Pitman High School is a community of learners, consisting of approximately 350 students and 50 staff members. We are proud to offer a wide array of course offerings and multiple pathways to meet the needs of our student body, as we prepare all our students for success beyond high school. Our array of courses in STEAM, Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, Business, Visual and Performing Arts, Social Studies and World Language provide our students with unique experiences that focus their learning in a self-selected area of study. In addition, we offer multiple Advanced Placement and Honors-level courses as well as focused individualized education plans for all levels. We continually monitor our course offerings and programs to ensure that they provide our students with rigorous and relevant learning.
At Pitman High School, we strive to create a learning environment where each student and each staff member feels welcomed, valued, and respected. We place a very high priority on the social and emotional well-being of our students and staff. Our goal is to support our students to become kind, responsible, respectful, honest and hard-working adults. With an approximate 7:1 ratio of students to staff, it affords for all students to be recognized and appreciated for their dedication to learning and their successes no matter the level.
We are fortunate to have the resources that provide our students with athletic and co-curricular opportunities to further their development and to broaden their horizons. Our athletic program supports teams across three seasons, and we offer students the opportunity to participate in different clubs and organizations. These opportunities allow our students to explore and to pursue passions outside of the classroom which enrich their high school experience.
