my son attends marlboro high school's business program and i couldn't ask for anythin more. He is always drowned in his homework but i can tell that it has had a great effect on him based on the fact that he has matured and learned to manage his time wisely. The business program is challenging and can be described in simply one word- phenomenal.

My son graduated from Marlboro High School a long time ago. He did well then (in the top 2% of his class), got a lot of AP classes that allow him to graduuate from college in 3 years! He went on to become a sucessful business man. As a parent, I couldn't ask for more!

Great high school! I went to Francis Lewis in NYC and wanted my children to do better than I did. Marlboro HS was an answer to my prayer--my daughter graduated in 2008 and raves about the school to this day! My son just started in Marlboro and is equally happy. Caring teachers, great facilities, and a strong administration translate to a wonderful high school. I wish I had gone to Marlboro instead of high school in NYC.

My kids are both in the HS. I moved from NYC to ensure a safe school environment. The HS has its problems but on a much lower scale than NYC schools. The educational part is no better than NYC. Most of the kids go to good colleges because we, the parents, push them. Almost everyone has tutors. They also do it because their friends are aiming for the good schools. The schools teach for the state exams to ensure they get the most funding. We all feel better in the burbs though.

On the whole the education has been very good. My children worked hard and got into very good schools. Kids will have to work for their A's. The new administration in the school is not too good. The female vice principals are quite rude and unprofessional.

I have 2 students in this high school. Overall, our children are able to get into good colleges, but mostly because they are a smart bunch and receive tutoring to get through their classes. The overall feeling that is pervasive from the administrators and teaching staff is one of apathy. My son is a sophomore and has never once seen the principal in any of his classrooms or the hallway. The new principal is invisible, the assistant does a good job. It often seems that instead of trying to foster enthusiasm, some of staff instead play the role of adversaries. The afterschool activities for athletes are encouraged, as for the non-athletes, the school is extremely disorganized about getting the info to kids about where, when, and which teachers are running the clubs. There is a huge sense of disorganization in regards to the extracurricular offerings.

I am a former student of Marlboro High School who graduated in 2001. The faculty and administration are second to none, and give their undevided attention to every student. The school is diverse and all students recieve the highest education. It is the finest public school in the country.

I currently have a senior, junior and a freshman in Marlboro High School. We moved to Marlboro about five years ago for their school system. It's an excelent school and all three of my children are chalanged in their classes. I wasn't worried about sending them here nor intrested in looking at private high schools when they were younger. Though the school is a bit over crowded, there's plenty of people willing to help your child succeed.

Excellent school especially for specialized business program which is extremely challenging. Even as freshman students are given college level courses.

The quality of education here is excellent. I was fully prepared for rigorous college careers at a competetive university when they left here. However, social pressure especially pressure around money is very high here. Children feel a lot of pressure to have material things in order to fit in. There is also a lot of academic pressure here. Students are constantly concerned about their grades/SAT scores.

There are plenty of opportunities for involvement in sports and extra activities, but outside of the advanced educational programs, the school is lacking. Teachers and guidance department often seem to treat parental concern as an annoyance and kids often get pushed along.

I am a former student, and it appears the previous reviews of the school are completely off base. Realize this is an upper-middle class school with a large Jewish population and little diversity where 95%+ seek higher education. This school has good funding for sports and extracurriculars. Yet, it is better known for good academics than sports teams. Academically, the quality of education at the school is unmatched. Parents must realize 'A' students in other districts come here and become B and C students because school will challenge intellectuals! The difficulty pays off on SATs and AP courses where 4 and 5s are the standard. This school is overcrowded but thats because people want to their kids to be educated here and its public. There are always teachers willing to help you but the personal attention found at private schools is lacking. Many parents opt for private tutoring and college advisors.

I am currently a student at Marlboro High School. The hallways at the high school can get crowded because of the enormous amounts of students in the school. However, I believe that all departments in the school are excellent. I am in all honor classes and have been since freshmen year and I am very confident and satisfied with the teachers i have had. The business program, which i am a part of is an excellent specialized learning center that exposed me to different sectors of the business world and envoked an interest in both accounting and economics. Marlboro High School is an excellent school in all areas.

I totally agree with the last review. My son is a sophomore who was a straight A student before attendin the high school. Now he is doing B & C work and no one including the teachers and guidance counselors seem to care. The school is very crowded which is why I think the teachers do not care. The math dept is bad, my son does excellent on statewide testing in math. He has been in advanced math since 4th grade and scored 94% on the PSATs, yet he is doing C work and I cannot get the schools help! Teachers and guidance office never return my calls, my next step is to call the principal and see what good that does.

I currently attend Marlboro High School as a sophomore. (The information is a bit outdated -- last I heard the school had 2600 students, but not sure). The halls can get VERY crowded, and some students may not feel safe, escpecially new freshman who are problably intimidated. The school has great English, foreign language, and history departments, however the math and Physical Education departments leave alot to be desired, and many students and their parents, myself included, have numerous complaints about the way the math department is run and the teachers in it. Some teachers in the school tend not to care much about their students, and some will ignore the class the whole period. Overall a good school, but lacking a little bit.
