Dear Families and Students,
Welcome to Red Bank Regional High School and the 2016-17 academic year! The opening of school is filled with excitement and challenges. Regardless of whether you are newcomer or a returning student, I encourage everyone to embrace the potential of the year and the extraordinary opportunities that RBR offers.
RBR has many distinctive features that set it apart from most high schools. The academy structure links learning across subjects and enables students to pursue their interests within a smaller setting. At the same time, students have access to all the resources of an extensive high school program taught by a distinguished and dedicated faculty. In addition to the academy offerings, RBR offers a comprehensive range of Advanced Placement courses and is one of only 14 New Jersey high schools to offer the International Baccalaureate diploma and certificate program. There is also a rich variety of elective offerings in a wide-range of subjects.
In addition to its outstanding academic programs, our school provides an extensive range of athletic and co-curricular offerings. RBR’s 26 varsity sports teams compete in the Shore Athletic Conference; students can also participate in junior varsity and freshman programs. Over 30 clubs and organizations offer rich opportunities for students to collaborate, build friendships, and explore outside the classroom.
The RBR community is committed to providing all students the support they need to achieve academic success and find personal fulfillment. All new students enroll in one of three Freshman Academies taught by teams of core subject-area teachers. A range of counseling services is available though our guidance department and The Source, the school’s on-site counseling center. Another great strength is diversity of our student body. In addition to our local sending districts of Little Silver, Red Bank, and Shrewsbury, students attend RBR from throughout Monmouth County.
Red Bank Regional has a proud history and we are grateful for the generous support we receive from our families and communities. I know you will find that RBR has the programs, the resources, and, above all, the people to help you make the most of your high school years. Let me extend a warm welcome and best wishes to everyone for a great school year. Go Bucs!
