As a current student of HHS, Some of the comments amaze me about what some people thing about the high school. But if some were at the school today and saw the reaction to the news of Mr. DeFalco's death, you would not believe the unity... We all became one family, and I am proud to be a part of it.
Rest In Peace Mr. Joe DeFalco

I went to HHS in the early 80's (9/79-6/83), and I remember when I was a freshman there was a big fight between some blacks and whites.  Other than that I dont remember any kind of racial tensions at the school.  As for violence, it was actually quite minimal, compared to what I used to hear about towns like Paterson and Newark.  In fact, in my junior and senior years we had an influx of students coming to school from Paterson schools due to the violence going on there. This was the pre-Joe Clark days. Joe Clark was the principal of one of the HS's in Paterson who inspired the movie Lean on Me starring Morgan Freeman.  To the editor, you wrote that you went to St. Joe's in Montvale, while your siblings went to HHS. It's funny you mention St. Joe's because my brother went to St.Joes in Montvale. He was there on a basketball scholarship. I'm wondering if you were there the same time he was there

Re: High School - Band

Kudos to the much improved Hackensack High School Band.  I had a chance to listen to them at the last three high school games and really enjoyed the halftime.  For a small band, they are packing a big punch.

Students from around the state match their wits in brain game

Gabriella Angione, 17, a junior at Hackensack High School, spent her lunch hour preparing to give a speech on the nature of time and the theory of relativity.

This is a good change, and the Record article should have credited whoever was behind the push.  My guess is that the new Principal, Mark Porto, deserves at least some of the credit.  He took over after the untimely demise of Joseph DeFalco in 2005.  It's very disturbing to learn that African-Americans and Latinos were steered away from Advanced Placement Courses at recently as a few years ago.

It's also well worth noting that the demographic statistics are virtually unchanged from 1995, that's 12 years ago.  There are some people who believe that integration doesn't work and eventually all the white families will move away.  Those people may have been right in the 1980's, but not any more. The stability of these numbers over a long time period shows that integration can and does work.  And that's the future. Integration will come to every neighborhood of every city and town in Bergen County, and more and more mixed race children will enter the school system.  In 30 years, Hackensack won't be as different from the rest of the County, demographically, as it is today, and there might not be any neighborhoods more than 50% of any one race.
