Welcome to Athletics
Message from the Athletic Director
Please be advised as we move toward the Winter season, we will only permit two family members per student-athlete for all of our main campus indoor events. We are requesting that everyone who is in attendance for our student athletes, are required to wear a mask at all times. Our goal is to provide our athletic teams, families, and coaches with the safest environment possible here at Perth Amboy High School. We will continue to monitor the landscape and keep everyone updated of any changes throughout the season through our ahtletic webpage. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our athletic office. We look forward to another successful and rewarding athletic season and thank you for all your anticipated support.
Have a Panther Day!

A Philosophy of Excellence
The Perth Amboy School district believes that a dynamic program of student activities is vital to the educational development of the student. Athletics play an important part in the life of Perth Amboy High School. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of our athletic program. Athletic participation also plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in their school.The major objective of the athletic program is to provide wholesome opportunities for students to develop positive leadership habits and attitudes of social and group interaction. Coaching leadership should be of the highest quality and should provide athletes with examples of exemplary behavior. Measurement of leadership success should not be measured in terms of the tangible evidence of the victories and defeats. Instead character, courage and integrity will be major objectives of the athletic program.
The athletic program will always be consistent with the general objectives of the school. The athletic administration should be oriented to general policies of the institution. At no time will the program place the total educational curriculum secondary in emphasis; program leaders will constantly strive for the development of well-rounded individuals, capable of taking their place in modern society.
