Silver Springs accepts students 10th through 12th grades, throughout the school year. Students who are 18 years old and have completed 4 years of high school will be referred to NJUHSD Adult Education (https://adulted.njuhsd.com/).
Students transferring from within NJUHSD go through a formal referral and withdrawal process with the sending school's counselor and administration. Intradistrict transfers are limited to enrollment at six dates throughout the year, Q1, IPR3, Q2/S1, IPR 4, Q3, & IPR6.
Silver Springs High School has an open enrollment policy for interdistrict students. Proof of residency (physical address) is required for those new to NJUHSD. Enrollment may be closed when the school’s enrollment cap has been reached.
An intake orientation for all new students and their parent(s) and/or guardian is required. This orientation will familiarize new students to all policies and procedures at Silver Springs High School. All students on a current IEP will have an intake IEP meeting to determine appropriate placement.
