I am a Pinelands graduate with a doctorate degree and am very appreciative of the education I received there. The resources at the school are there if you avail yourself of them. Extremely caring staff and some great teachers. Drama Program is amazing. I think the parents that are complaining need to look at their children and themselves and not the school. The teachers cannot do it alone. if you are not motivating your children, ensuring that they are doing their work every night and helping them prepare for tests, quizzes and projects you should expect that they will fail in school and life. Making excuses for their failure and putting all of the blame on the teachers is the wrong message to send to your children.

This school is so unresponsive. If your child has a learning issue or an attention problem, they do not know how to handle it. My son went from A-B's to F's. Almost all straight F's. Horrible.

While this school and others in the district/area are getting bad reviews,our childrens experiences have been outstanding. There is a strong support system for the students and parents. Childrens learning does not stop at the end of the school day. They must have strong support at home academically as the parents and family must participate in the learning experience. The quality of the education your children recieve is a direct reflection on the continued learning they recieve at home. Remember teachers are not baby sitters.

I used to attend this school, I am now in college and let me tell you Pinelands has prepared me for college in so many ways. We may not have outstanding academic scores and our sports teams may not win as much as the other schools but I learned more life lessons from this school than anyone else in Ocean County. Pinelands is a small school and its like a family there, we look out for each other. The teachers are less like drill sargents and more like parents away from our parents. The coaches care about their athletes more then they care about the win. Learning is fun at Pinelands, high school is for making memories and all of the ones I have made are positive. You can say learning cant be fun if you are not retaining the necessary material but I have gone to all the schools in LEH and I am currently holding a 4.0 at college so they must be doing something right. If you come on here and want to rate the school bad because the athletics are terrible or because we have a lot of pregnancies, maybe try talking to your kids about safe sex and how winning isnt everything and stop blaming it on the school, you sound ridiculous.

What a shame that so many negative comments are coming from parents of our wonderful children @ PRHS. I am proud to say my 3 children have thrived in this motivating, and caring environment. The school offers many many extracutricular activities not only including sports but community involvment, drama, academics, etc! You are so quick to to point out "how terrible PRHS is in sports"..SHAME on all of you. You are talking about my..our children. Every team has their time to shine in victory but the truth of the matter is the game/team work/trust building far exceeds the win!!!!!! The year my son was a senior the football team had a glowing record. The past year they did not win a game but let me tell you the young men who were on that team had the spirit and love for each other that was a lesson they will take with them troughout their entire lives! My 2 sons are college educated and my daughter still attends PRHS and is loving every minute of her high school experience to the fullest. She will be college bound, well prepared by the support of the school as well as loving, encouarging parents!!! Look to see what you can do for your kids, maybe this is where the problem is! GO CATS!

This is a great school. I am a parent of a current senior girl. My daughter highly excels in her classes and is a student athlete. She is also a minority in this school and is loved my teachers and students. If your student is not doing well, don't always blame the teachers. It takes the want of the student themselves to succeed. My daughter had been accepted to a university in the fall with a major in Biology and was excepted to every college she applied to. Parents are also responsible for pushing their children to do well, set standards and expectations, and provide a nurturing home environment.

This school was terrible and the teachers were terrible, scary place to have your children attend. everything about this school was terrible. Teachers were perverts, and the food was aweful. School board was bad, way too strict. Highest pregnancy rating in all of ocean county. bottom line do not let your children attend this highschool.

Never cared for the school. Had 3 kids go thru it. My son is not graduating this year all because he is one of those people who absolutely cannot get up in front of a group and talk. And this year Pinelands have a senior project which requires them to talk in front of their english class. He knew he couldn't graduate without that so he just blew off the whole year. He has always been a good student up until this year. I was forced to do speech in 10th grade at my high school and was totally humiliated every time. Still haven't figured out how that was supposed to help me in life. I'm sure my son isn't the only kid not graduating because of this.

athletic program is terrible. I can't even rate it. Teachers are nice, but school needs more AP classes. Nice place to live, but the school is the worst in the area, honestly.

Both of my children attended PRHS and had positive experiences, both in and out of the classroom. They are currently attending college and doing quite well. However, I do feel the school needs to offer more AP classes as well as enhancing the sport programs. Volleyball, gymnastics, swimming, and boy's lacrosse should be offered to students.

Little Egg Harbor has a great small town community feel...the schools are average...taxes are high. Overall, it's not a bad place to live. We just wish the high school had more sports to offer ...such as a swim team, gymnastics etc...like some of the surrounding schools.

My son just graduated from pinelands and i'll tell you, that school did him wonders. If he stayed at the school he was at I don't believe he would have graduated. Sure there are problems at all schools but, I feel Pinelands handled them very quickly & fairly. I am proud to say my son is a graduate of PINELANDS REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL.

If you are looking for a school that is totally out of control by adding new rules at the drop of a hat this is the school. They have no respect for the children attending PRHS and they have no time for parents and their input. Every year it gets worse than the year before. I feel like I have no power when it comes to my child and the decisions that I need to make for her. They have a way of making their 'new' rules affect the 'good' kids. My daughter plays 3 sports and is a solid B student, National Honor Society member. This school's faculty has made my daughter absolutely hate going to school, that is sad, she used to love to go to school. Thank god we only have to deal with this school for 3 more years. Oh yeah, should I mention the totally uncalled for and lack of respect outburst that my daughter, 2 of her friends and I witnessed from our new principal. Embarassing. The Board of Education a big joke, don't even waste your time going to their meetings. I feel as if a cult of some sort is taking over the school and it is only going to get worse.
