18 Parent Reviews for Barnegat High School

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

Barnegat HS is brand new with state of the art technology. Their focus is not merely academic but includes a strong emphasis on mental health, sexuality, foreign language, equality for all, & promotes the arts while so many other schools neglect the arts feeling somehow it is less important than academics. ...  Read more

the kids rule this school, there is no supervision, total disrespect for any authority. It is a disgrace!

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

My daughter had graduated fromthis school and I think this school has been VERY unorganizied. I feel they have opened the doors way before they were ready to do so. And I am not the only parent to feel this way. My son went to Southern and it was much more organanized. I feel all Barnegat wanted to ...  Read more

This high school is disfunctional. It is run without any boundaries. The teachers are no guidles about what they can say. It is run like a grade school. The Principal wants to hear no complaints from students and guardians. He lets everything go. This is why MOST students if asked wished that they ...  Read more

The teachers are either very simple not preparing you at all or give too much unnessisary work overloading students with worthless information. I attend all honors classes and they are not as perplexing as I would hope as they do not chalange but just assign more work then the average classes. There ...  Read more
