This rating should really be updated. Neptune provides a good educational base and nice diverse culture. The teacher's are hardworking and invested in the students. As an alumni, college was never a problem. My biggest qualm is that the College prep courses are far too lackadaisical and not academically rigorous because of it. College prep houses smart students who don't like to study & since it teeters between regular & Honors courses they don't have to. A higher standard needs to be put in place there but the Honors & AP classes are great. All in all, a solid school.

My daughter went to this school and I had to pull her out because they love to sweep problems under the carpet. There bullying policy is weak and they do nothing about it. I'm highly disapointed in neptune hs right down to their vice super intendent. You get no where with them. For a school of excellence they sure didn't prove it to me. The only good thing about this school is their JROTC program.

the school has so much to offer but they say they are a school of "no excuses'' I find the school makes an excuse for everything. from teachers not showing up on back to school night to guidence disregarding requests for appts., from students. It's a school that accepts mediocraty fom their administration and staff at the expense of their students.

As a former student of Neptune High School, I'm deeply disappointed by the school's ratings. Neptune High School is a great school with faculty that truly care about their students. I'm currently pursuing a career in education, and have yet to find a school in Northern Jersey that compares. Like all other schools it has it's problems, BUT the administration is making every attempt to change the school into a school of 'excellence.' I believe the main issue with the school isn't the school, it's the mentality of the students. They are more focused on fighting that they forget the purpose for them being there is to get an education. Its all stems from the surrounding neighborhood and today's society. It's quite sad because there are a plethora of opportunities available to them that many fail to utilize.

As a former student who has gone on to get a BS,MS, and PhD, as well as post-doctoral research in Cambridge, England, the ratings here don't tell the whole story. This school provided a great foundation for its most academic students. Neptune High School has many superb, skilled teachers and it provided small but focus AP classes. Moreover, it provide a far more broad ranging and rigorous education than any private schools in the region as well as a comparable education to the public schools in the area.

I am currently a student at NHS.It is an okay school but I am not fully satisfied with it.The kids can be mean and they do fight quite a bit.Also,the teachers are rude and they do not know how to handle or teach the kids properly.

Neptune High School is a great school. The teachers are fantastic. There is a vast number of extracurricular activities and sport teams. We are very satisfied with the education that our kids received while at Neptune. An added perk is that construction is just about finished on a complete overhaul of the school. It is now a brand new, state of the art school, even better than before. I would feel very comfortable in recommending this school to anyone anticipating sending their children here.

We have a 9th grader in the high school. To date the academics are good. Our daughter seems to be learning the information that is taught in class. We have also had an easy time contacting the teachers for information when needed. The teachers and administrators seem to helpful, reponsive and knowledgable. The sports teams are good and have a good turn out. The coaches have allhad experience in their sport and seem to be good with the kids. The only 2 things that I am not happy with at the school is that there is massive construction going on, albeit for a 1st class theater and drama studio, and that the swim team must practice, temporarily, at teh Boys & Girls Club in Asbury Park. All in all the school is good and on a scale of 1 to 10 I would say it is a 7.5.
