toms river high school east , is the worst school I have even been to , the kids are mean , the parents move from up north and then have lots of money in toms river cause its cheap , all school stuff goes to the pushest parents in town , student presidents and vice presidents are all given to the same familes in town , not cause they are kind people just pushy people , I really do think this should be looked into , It makes the whole school experience stink for most kids to the point where they don't care or try , they just want to get out , if you think you can get away from the pushy pto parent from cedar grove in high school think again , The bully in middle school will be the president of your class . You think it will be better no it will not , You will see the same people from the same families getting everything , a leg up on the other kids , .Other kids aren't told how to look good to colleges or even have a change to get into student council type groups cause it all goes to the same families , not only that but they hand you student parent handbook with these students names in them , talk about power , why not just give them keys to the school.

I attended HS East in the '80s and it was a good school. My son is now a sophomore and I REMOVED him after two marking periods of his freshman year! The teachers never answered our emails and his world civ teacher would rather put his feet up on the desk, watch basketball and have the students teach themselves. He was in all honors classes and was expected to pair up with students on a dual project who didn't care! So my son did the entire project to get the grade he deserved. HS East-you failed in my book! My son now attends Kaplan University and loves it!

I raised two boys who attended the Toms River Regional Schools from kindergarten to twelfth grade. The teachers are second to none! They are always willing to stay after school to offer help to any students on any given day. The teachers also call home if they are concerned about something pertaining to your child, so open communication is encouraged. Both my sons received an excellent education and went on to become productive members of society: one is a high school English teacher, the other is an environmental philanthropist in the private sector; they also acquired very strong writing skills which help them with their occupations. To the teachers I say, 'Thank You' for doing such a fine job! Keep up the good work!

My daughter attends high school East and is a Junior. The teachers are very attentive, excellent, approachable and available. The atomosphere encourages students to develop their gifts and talents. There are many activities and something for everyone. It is a very positive learning environment.

There's lots of good that goes on at East. When I compare notes with other parents who have children at other Toms River High Schools, it seems they are all envious of the programs and overall situation of safety found at TRHSE.

I am weeks away from graduation and I stumbled onto this website. Toms River East was definetly an experience but I would rather not send my children here. Many people may like this school but as a student I haven't had the best experience. The teachers do help but not to quality and the parents do not attend any events. The principal is very hypocritical, she bans flip-flops, short skirts and also tank tops. I have seen her wear many of these and still punish us for it. The extracurricular activities are excellent. There are many to choose from.

Both of my children attended East and as a result both went on to College and did quite well. East is an excellent school with an excellent faculty. However, more and more people from North Jersey and NY are moving into this area and this will no doubt have an adverse affect on this school in the future..Too bad

I have 2 sons in High School East. The principal, Mrs. Madden runs a tight ship. I could not ask for more in a high school. Teacher excellence, sports, safety, and a principal that keeps East's excellence above par.

As a rising senior I feel I have a true view of the school. I am quite pleased with the schools facility's and the teachers. The environment is made pleasant by a generally excellent teaching staff that make themselves friendly available and knowledgable.

After spending one year at North, East was a relief. My child went from being unknown to participating in school activities. East encourages participation and recognizes achievment. East gets thumbs up all the way!
