Monmouth Regional is a good school that gets a bad rap. Any school public or private has their issues no school is perfect! My child did well, got accepted to every college she applied to and ended up at a very well known and great college. The school is diverse it is a Regional School to be expected. It's how your child applies themselves and who they associate themselves with. My child loved her teachers and especially Guidance Counselor.

Unfortunately the reputation of MRHS has not been the best in the past, but over the 9 years I have been teaching there faculty, staff and administration have been working tirelessly to change the culture and improve not only the education, but the student experience as well. Today, in 2015, MRHS is the proud home to Falcon Nation - a place where we all come together as family for the good of the student. Perhaps it was not always like this, but I can confidently say I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

Please do not send your child to this school. I don't know what they do with the money the get for the school but it is falling apart and the school rules are odd and do not favor many parents wishes and inconvenience both them and the students. I have heard of students failing and fighting and getting expelled and i do not believe that the teachers help that at all. Nobody in that school, student or teacher, is respectful and there are conflicts between the two. I would recommend sending your kid to another local school or just not moving to this area at all. I wish i didn't keep my kid in this school as long as i did, as it has lowered her chances of getting into a good college. I blame this mostly on the teachers that did not try to help her when I asked them myself.
