The Roselle Park School District believes that a dynamic and diverse program of student athletic activities is vital to the educational development of the student. Athletics have been, and should continue to be, an integral part of the total educational program at Roselle Park High school and should provide a variety of experiences to aid with the development of favorable values in preparation for adult life.
The athletic program must conform to policies established by the Roselle Park Board of Education, the Constitution and By-Laws of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association, and the Union County Conference. Good Sportsmanship, ethics, and learning are put at a premium by the administration and department as athletics an extension of the classroom. Ultimately, the athletic program will serve to emphasize the value of participation without overemphasizing the importance of winning. The educational community of Roselle Park will strive to develop in student-athlete’s positive citizenship, leadership, and sportsmanship while at the same time maintaining a balance between the athletic and academic programs. At all times, the athletic program will be conducted in such a way as to justify it being an educational activity.
The foundation of the school can be reflected in what occurs before and after the traditional academic day. This extension, whether it be in athletics, in the arts, or in any other co-curricular will set the tone for the school year. If students are involved, active, and concerned beyond the classroom, it will have a profound effect on them within the auspices of the classroom itself.
