Barnegat High School Ratings & Reviews
I would have to rate the high school with a 1 or less the worst out of every school in the state of New Jersey something should have been done by now but it has not.
Barnegat High School may be one of the most repressive, closed minded, culturally ambivalent, and static environments in the entire United States of America. The place is a diorama of wanton fear, unresponsive paralyzed leadership, and failed social programs. Perhaps, it is unfair to say all this because these are traits of all High Schools? Then if all public education follows this trend, and I believe it could, then all there is to say is Barnegat High School is nothing special; and it follows the fear controlled and repressed social narrative of 2000's modern America. The place is a terrible environment to grow, learn, or build character and these seem to be things expected to happen in college; and the teachers/program has washed its hands of helping or allowing it to happen. The place is a failed illusion that people are carried through for terrible reasons. The only good thing about Barnegat High School is the funny satirical existence of very dark issues presented with a candy coating.
I have two students at BHS and I think like life, this school offers a multitude of options you just need to look for them and take advantage of them! FOLLOW the rules and this school has a lot to offer. I couldn't commend the staff and teachers enough for the way they have helped my oldest child. MW-parent
This school is not as bad as people make it sound. Kids like to complain its what they do, so going on the fact that your son or daughter says it 'boring' is not exactly an objective veiw. The teachers are very relateable being that they are all very close to the students in age, it is easyer to connect to thjem and grasp what they teach. However the school is very disorganized at times and rules are taken too seriously. Being late to lunch can get you a detention depending on the mood of whatever teacher walks by, teacher can also be a little trigger happy with their detention slips. But dispite its faults barnegat high school works and the size is great because everyone know each other and there really aren't 'clicks' so friends are very easy to make
My child is a senior at Barnegat H. S. and has had a wonderful experience. The quality of education is superb. Even though there are not as many electives as Southern Regional, there are as many if not more AP classes. The sports program is expanding, as are the music and arts departments. While some students struggle, others flourish. But isn't this the same in all schools. Kudos to the principal and staff. They have come a long way in four and a half years.
