Could not be happier with my son's education! He is not only mature, but very well rounded from attending EBHS. It is a true institute of education for the real world and beyond.
Excellent high school - completely prepares students for college and the next steps! So much to offer in terms of classes!
Overall high quality school with a diverse student body and a wide range of classes (including AP classes) to take. .
As a former student at East Brunswick High School, I feel that I was well prepared for college. Having to graduate in June of 2011 I have went on in furthering my education going into college. The high school has well prepared their students going into college. Everyone says the first year is hard as in the amount of work and tests you get in college but for me and many of my peers from East Brunswick High school the first year was a very smooth transition. Since EBHS already gives their students an abundant amount of work and tests college was not so much different since the amount of homework in college is comparable to the amount of EBHS. I highly reccomend this school but you really have to work hard to follow their academic standings.
I recently moved here from Monmouth county and have sent my children to East Brunswick High School after deciding to move to a place where their education system is a strong point. During the registration process I was given a tour of the school and wow was I surprised. The amount of rooms in this school is absolutely huge and technology wise it is the best I've seen. Most the rooms have these things called smart boards and in the science rooms I noticed iMacs in almost every science class. In their arts classes new iMacs were present and some labs have pop up computers with Mac minis hooked on to them for each individual student. I was also given a tour at the media center which is their library and it is very well stocked with 2 extra computer labs that can support 100 students. Overall the school was very clean and their athletic fields were nice as well with a fuse sized track and brand new football and baseball fields. That's not it on the other side they have 3 soccer fields and a tennis court. Not to mention they also have 3 indoor gyms, a weight room, aerobics room, and a dance room as well.

You will do great here if you are very smart or a very, very hard worker. Honors/AP kids for the most part have great teachers and will get into a top college if they get good grades and participate in extra-curricular activities. However, in a school so big, many students do not do so well. If you can make it to the top in East Brunswick, then you're set, but if you can't, I would look to other schools.
What is the measure of a school but the end result - how its students ultimately fare as adults? My children attended East Brunswick HS in the 1990s and each was enriched and motivated by the experience. My son went on to the honors program at U of Penn, where the director told us they accepted many EB students because they were among the best prepared for college. The foundation of my son's career was in EBHS's extra-curricular activities - the newspaper and the We the People competition. My daughter was Phi Beta Kappa at Rutgers; she majored in psychology after being inspired by an EBHS teacher and is now a social worker. You won't find a better public school system. But students (and parents) need to realize that they only get out of it what they put into it.
I am a senior at EBHS and I simply love the opportunities that this school (and the whole EB school system) has given me. The teachers are all really nice and helpful and have the experience to help you get the desired score/results that you want. I took 5 AP courses last year, did superb on all 5 exams. I was also recently accepted to Johns Hopkins and will be going there.
As a parent of 3 graduates from EBHS over the span of 12 years, all three kids have been throughly well prepared for college educations. They have either graduated or have been accepted into Drexel, George Washington, and Temple respectively, all theit first choice of colleges. All three found teachers who served as inspirations to them in their course of studies. This includes academics as well as the arts. All three also received AP credits from the AP courses they took, with a wide variety of AP courses available. I highly recommend this public high school for those parents and students capable of supporting a challenging academic environment.
I am currently a Jr. in East Brunswick High School and I have to say it is very good compared to the school i went before. When I moved here it was very difficult for me since everything was completely new and the academics were way higher since EBHS is probably 1 or 2 years ahead of other schools. During my sophmore year i began to get used to the school and all I have to say is that the education they provide for us is and will be beneficial for our life in the future. The school environment is nice and clean and most of the teachers are very nice and will be willing to take half their afternoon time to help you on work you do not understand. Overall I think this school is a wonderful place to learn and have fun since many of the kids are nice.
Teachers at EBHS constantly told me they were preparing me for college. I did not really think anything of it until I got to college. I can't believe how advanced I am compared to other students from different high schools around the country. EBHS was a great school and really helped me prepare for the real world.

My Granddaughter just graduated from E.B.H.C. & she got a wonderful education that prepared her for college. The education there was very well rounded giving her the opportunity to excel in so many different ways.
I just graduated and feel very prepared to take on the workload and expectations of a college student, due to my education at East Brunswick High School. It's fun and school spirited like you wouldn't believe. There's so many course options that allow everyone to find what they really enjoy doing, which ultimately helps when deciding what colleges to apply to.
We all work hard for what we want to accomplish, and there is no other school like east brunswick that would work together to have the better for our community.
A school that keeps the majority of kids on track to a better future.
East brunswick High School is a great school. It has excellent academic standing and an awesome arts department. I graduated in 2009 and I would go to that school again.
