Assistant Principal - Grade 9

  •  Dear Parent/Guardian:


    Welcome Class of 2027!! Go Comets!!

    It is with great pride that I welcome the Class of 2027 to an exciting and challenging school year at Hackensack High School, home of the Comets!

    My name is Mr. C. King, and I have the distinct honor of being the Assistant Principal for Grade 9 at Hackensack High School.

    Your child has reached an important milestone in his/her academic career.  On Wednesday, September 6, 2023, he or she will start the 9th grade at Hackensack High School.


    We are pleased to have you as a partner in this educational year.  As the school year progresses and you become more informed or puzzled (or both), we encourage you to call the school and talk with those who might be of some assistance. We also encourage you to peruse our website,, where you can learn about the various departments, course offerings, upcoming events, extracurricular activities, etc.  If you still have any unanswered questions dealing with the overall programs, curriculum, or activities, please contact me directly or the department supervisors.


    One of our goals at Hackensack High School is to involve parents/guardians more in their child’s academics.  To accomplish this, parents/guardians will have access to the Genesis Parental Portal for the entire school year.   As a parent/guardian, you will have access to your child’s daily class attendance, conduct reports, and gradebook which allows you to see grades for all of your child’s classes (except gym).  


    We are glad to have you with us this school year, and we want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience academic, social and emotional growth.  With your help and cooperation, this will be an exceptional school year.
