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
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. As a psychologist, I can assure you, individuals with a musical background demonstrate better math skills The teachers primararily hold advanced degrees & aproach subjects with a modern & mature attitude that is parent friendly & 'individually' respectful & makes use of interactive technology. The athletic department reminds us always that fitness, competition, fun, & respect for self as well as oppenents are of equal importance. It is with great honor that I nominate Barnegat HS. sincerely, Laura Thompson-Schaeffer
