Teaneck High School offers students access to college level courses with a credit option in several subject areas at the high school through Fairleigh Dickinson University and Bergen Community College. Courses in science, computer science, social studies, business, culinary arts and literature are offered on our campus with our teachers, and are the equivalent of first year college courses and earn three college credits. Students must earn a grade of C or higher in order to receive college credit from FDU and BCC. 

Fairleigh Dickinson University- STEM Programs

Girls Exploring Engineering (GEE) Program as part of the FDU STEM Academy, provides eighth grade girls from North Bergen, Union City and Teaneck middle schools with the opportunity to get involved in the field of engineering.  The GEE program strives to close the engineering education and career gap and emphasize creativity, teamwork and having a positive impact on society through the use of math and science with the goal of ‘opening up the girls’ minds to incredible career choices.

Technical Enrichment and Outreach Program (TEOP) 

Students receive introductory engineering lectures plus guided hands-on experience in working with various technology oriented kits, projects, and computer activities. Basic engineering and scientific concepts and principles and mathematics (keyed to the hands-on projects) would be introduced in the lectures. This innovative enrichment program provides exposure to, and experience with, pre-engineering and engineering technology activities.

Mathematics Enrichment through Applications/Technical Enrichment Outreach Program (META)

META-TEOP’s primary objectives are:

  • To promote the study and appreciation of mathematics through immersion in mathematics applications not found in the standard high school curriculum

  • To encourage high school students to pursue mathematics as a college major

  • To educate students about possible career paths in mathematics
