Science League is a long-running competition among both public and private schools in New Jersey. Watchung Hills fields teams in the following categories.
New Jersey State Science League Website

Chemistry 1 – students enrolled in first year chemistry
Chemistry 2 – students enrolled in AP chemistry
High School Physics – students enrolled in first year physics, non-AP
Physics C – students enrolled in AP physics
Typically about 140 schools compete in each category across the state in four regional meets that occur in January, February, March and April. For each meet, each school selects a team of four members to represent the district. These students are given a qualification exam which will be used to determine the top four students for each meet. The composition of this team can vary from one competition to the next.
Once science league members are selected, they take 4 multiple-choice tests and compete for individual and school rankings. When the competition is finished in April, state-wide scores are tallied and plaques are awarded to the top finishers in each subject. The top ten teams are awarded plaques. The top 10% of qualified individuals are also awarded plaques. To qualify, students must have taken at least 3 of the 4 tests as an official member of the team.
Watchung Hills has repeatedly finished as one of the top ten schools in the state and hope to continue in this tradition!
Who can participate?
Science League participants must be concurrently enrolled in the course that they are interested in competing in.
