No Place for Hate

We are proud to announce that Cresskill Middle School/High School has recently earned Gold Star Distinction as a 2020-2021 No Place for Hate School, and the only Bergen County High School to earn this recognition!  Through various classroom outreach initiatives this past year, our student group, led by Mrs. Amanda McCarthy & Ms. Megan Lynch, created programing in our school including Holocaust Remembrance Day and May’s Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month.  This is now the second year in a row that our school has been recognized, and we are committed to continuing this meaningful work to foster the best learning atmosphere possible for all students and staff in our school. 

2020-2021 No Place for Hate Schools

What is No Place For Hate? 

With public displays of hate on the rise, it is more important than ever for schools to commit to programs that clearly define expectations in behavior for all members of the community. Whether you are a student, educator, or family member, you have a role to play in combating bias and bullying as a means to stop the escalation of hate.  No Place for Hate, an initiative of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), offers the opportunity for school communities to work together to combat prejudice and enhance a culture of respect.  No Place for Hate is a self-directed program helping all of the stakeholders take the lead on improving and maintaining the school climate so all students can thrive.
