Aretza Arias, a junior, has won HSLPS's Student of the Week due to her work on a task force at Mayor's office with one of our own HSLPS alumni Stephanie Fernandez (left in photo). Aretza currently is involved in many extracurricular activities including the task force at the Mayor’s office, Mock Trial, Baruch STEP, National Honor Society, NJROTC, and the George Washington Swim Team. Her advice to her classmates is, "Start thinking about your future now. Regardless of what it is, you need to sure you're taking the right steps to achieve your goals." She has also said her favorite thing about our school is, "all of the resourses given to help increase my opportunities for a brighter future." Congratulations Aretza!
Dear School Community-
We have so much to be grateful for at HSLPS. Our terrific students become leaders and active members in their communities and throughout the world.

Before long, it's time to graduate and we are proud that so many of you continue on to college to continue your journey as life long learners. Your parents are our partners and we are lucky that they are active and diverse members of our community. Your teachers are dedicated, returning year after year to bring their best to your classrooms. Your guidance counselors, college advisor and public service coordinator are committed to keeping you on track and building your story of success from freshman year to graduation and beyond. Your administrators, deans, activity coordinators and all your support staff create a school culture that is positive, safe and innovative. I am honored to be your principal.
All the best
