This school runs smoothly on the the dedication of the teachers - some of whom are beloved by their students, both past and present. The spirit of the school has been evident within the the last few years, and the student body is embracing it. There are numerous sports and extracurricular activities for even the most discerning student. The marching band, while relatively young, is led by Mr. Jones, who gives tirelessly of his time, effort and enthusiasm. Our school is fortunate to have talented students and dedicated teachers working closely together to make the most of a student's high school career. If you haven't yet come out to support any of the school's events/games/competitions, you should try your best to experience the Matawan Huskies in action!

I love this school; they gave me the sprit to go on to follow what I loved. This learning environment was nothing but encouraging. I loved all the teachers and without their guidance, I would have never gone to college.

First off, this school has horrible administration. There are a few teachers who are passionate to their jobs. However, the atmosphere the teachers who are not passionate in conjunction with the administration create a very inhospitable learning place for students. My son and friends wanted to transfer out every year.

The high school has special education programs, Vo-Tech, honors programs, and A.P. programs. It actively supports music and the arts. There are dance classes. Boys sports is exemplary -- the Head Football coach is also a Vice Principal. Girls sports is about average. Bands - Jazz, Concert, Marching, and Ensembles. Choirs - Concert, Show, Select. The school awards a number of scholarships, and the district maintains an Education Foundation for support of special program funding. PTSO is fledgling, but there are a number of athletic and music parent groups who are highly involved with program support and fund raising. There have been some minor incidents of fighting, but no serious crimes have marred the academic landscape. The county has a collaboration with county honors high schools, such as Allied Health, High Tech, Communications High, and a Marine Science Academy which accepts a limited number of incoming freshmen.
