I noticed that the reviews on this site were from 2008 and felt compeled to bring anyone reading, up to date.Southern Regional High School is the envy of Ocean County and a phenominal place to send your kids. The teachers and administration are second to none and everything they do is with the students' best interest in mind. There is something for everyone to get invoved in here and in addition to being a sports powerhouse and leader in the arts, the academic training provided here has placed recent graduates at Princeton, Stanford, Harvard,and Dartmouth. This place is like a private boarding school, only much, much, better :) Posted 06/05/17

This is truly the greatest school in New Jersey. I can't say enough about the great teachers and academics and sports. In academics this is the best school in the county. In sports it is overall the strongest school in the shore conference. (the strongest conference in the state). This school is amazing! We have also won the Shoprite Cup which is awarded to 5 high schools in New Jersey (one in each division) with the best athletic programs in their division. Sorry it's soooo long but this isn't even the half of it.

This used to be a great school to send your kids, but it is in a major decline. So many great teachers retired because of the school atmosphere, and now all the teachers are extremely young, and are only there for a few years before they are dismissed or quit. The school is cutting many programs such as the ROTC program and many others, while they invest in athletics, that don't seem to prevail. It's sad to see this school at this all time low, and hopefully with a new superintendent Craig Henry, the school can improve. But I doubt it because of the politics involved in every aspect of this school.
