It is the worst high school ever... My daughter & niece were jumped by about 30 or more girls & the school did nothing to address this situation. I requested home schooling & was denied. I refuse to send my daughter to a school where she has to watch over her shoulder while in class & in between classes. Now my daughter is sitting home because I had to sign her out of this God forsaken school. They don't care about our children or their education. Legal action needs to be taken against the Asbury Park Board of Education...
