To ensure the academic success and personal growth of all students while developing a passion for learning.
Red Bank Regional High School is a comprehensive secondary school that offers a wide array of academic and extra-curricular program offerings for the student body which numbers 1200. The constituent sending districts include Little Silver, Red Bank Borough and Shrewsbury. The district also accepts students on a tuition basis who may be interested in one of three specialized academies of studies.
Most unique about the high school is its academies of special studies such as the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts, Academy of Information Technology, and Academy of Finance. Other unique program offerings include the Pre-Engineering Program (Project Lead the Way) and a CISCO certification program.
Committed to preparing its students to demonstrate proficiency in the state Core Curricular Standards, the district has engaged in an ambitious and continuous process of curricular alignment with the standards. Also committed to professional development for the faculty, the district has provided professional development to over 70% of the teaching staff in the areas of "differentiated instruction," teaching to multiple intelligences, student assessment methodology and the effective use of technology in classroom instruction.
The administration embraces the concept of shared decision making and continually involves parents, students, faculty and staff in research, planning and decision making. All of the district stakeholders have been polled in comprehensive commercially prepared surveys related to the school's organization, day-to-day operations, curriculum, policies, procedures, facilities and resources.
Students benefit from both a peer and faculty mentoring program as well as a summer enrichment program for incoming freshmen, focusing on the skills necessary for academic success.
The district has implemented several new initiatives including a re-organized school day “block schedule,” raising expectations for 9th and 10th grade English and mathematics students by improving instructional strategies and scheduling strategies and seeing to completion an ambitious building renovation to accommodate the thriving Visual and Performing Arts Program and the emerging technology academies.
