The school has come a long way. The teachers are great the problem is the lack of participation by many parents. That's not the school's fault. School's are not babysitters and there are quite a bit of families in Keyport and Union Beach who just don't care about education. With that being said the school is not a bad place, it's small and allows parents to really know what is going on if they invest the time.

Keyport High School is improving but there is still a long way to go. Administrators and teachers need to stay in place, there is just too much turn over. Additionally students need to be helped in the college selection process. These kids should just be prepped during their senior year, more thought needs to be bought in to the process early on in their education. We cannot accept Brookdale as the next step -- there are plenty of opportunities for low income students and those who are not in the top of their class. Guidance counselors need to work for their money and get these kids placed!!

I happen to be one of the students who go to Keyport High School and i must say this happens to be one of the worst schools in New Jersey. Teachers do not care enough to help students bring their grades up, teachers do not make the class interestign for the students to the point where the kids tend to fall asleep in class (i happen to be one of those students who fell asleep in class), their are students who smoke on school grounds and the staff does nothing about it, and just the other day there was a bunch of kids in my classes talking about getting drunk and throwing beer bottles over fences. My teacher was just sitting there listening to the conversation and not saying a thing about it. Parents i would not suggest this school for your kids. Transferring to new school soon.

Best school in the Bayshore area. My son was accepted to a top level technology school in Massachusetts and I couldn't be more proud of him. Students get out of this school what they put into it. Sports are weighed too heavily but academics are there if the students seek them out. The teachers work hard but the parents need to put in greater effort to support them.

I'm a student there. My friends are getting suspended for fighting every week. Teachers are not helping us learn. Grades are declining. I have free periods all the time. Kids are smoking in the bathrooms and everyone says Keyport High School needs improvements but not many people are helping and for such a small town and not many students its a pretty bad school.

Im a student at this school. Every student wants to be popular and the teachers are doing a poor job. There is atleast 2 or 3 good te teachers or atleast desent teachers there. Sports is very large here though. but this school n needs improving.

Our child spent his entire public school career in Keyport and was accepted to a top tier college this year. Sure KHS could do better, teachers are well paid and sports is the big deal in this bayshore community but education and excellence come down to investing in your child no matter where you live. Sure, there is always room for improvement but if parents don't rally together, don't attend Board meetings and don't change perception they have to bear some of the blame. Keyport schools have potential-get out there and demand more for your children.

The Keyport School System is one of the worst in Monmouth County. This High School, without a doubt, has a great selection of extra-curricular Activities. But, the education quality is very low. I am completely dis-satisfied with this school. I would not reccomend going here at all. Since Keyport is the 'default' High school for the town of Union Beach, Most children Only go there because their friends are going as most children are not accepted to the other school choices. Please take my advice and do not go to this school, unless you have no plans on going to college.

more events other than sports need to be encouraged. the entire program is lacking in art and music of any type. the school has made great strides forward with the new principal and vice principal. progress and change takes time but it is happening and the school is improving steadily. more emphisis needs to be placed on projects and presentations by the students. some teachers do not challenge the students to the fullest. the guidence department is very strong and works with each student to help them reach their potential and individual goals.
