I am a senior at Colts Neck High School and I could not be happier where I am today. Colts Neck has shaped me into the person who I am today and I am super grateful! There is an amazing staff that helps you along every step of the way. the teachers always go out of their way to make sure you understand a topic because they want you to exceed in life. Also, I would not have been able to apply to any colleges if it wasn't for my guidance counselor, Mrs. VanDeVusse. She helps me with everything I need about college and she has helped me achieve my life long goal of being accepted into Louisiana State University. I will be starting in the fall of 2019. I am also involved in the NJROTC program at the school and that program is the best program out there! It teaches you leadership skills and you make so many friends through the process and I cannot imagine my life without any of the people I met throughout my journey.

Colts Neck High School excels in most aspects regarding academics, school spirit, security, teachers, and clubs. Today, we wear Cougar Pride apparel to prove our loyalty and school spirit. We have various clubs from Free the Children which raises money for impoverished towns in 3rd world countries to Girls Who Code which inspired young women to join the computer science field. There are clubs for different professions such as DECA, JSA, and Book Club. Our security is top notch in that Officer McNamara, former Navy Seal, roams the building. Knowing someone like that is protecting our schools gives us all a sense of security. Always cheering her students on, Ms. Biddulph, our Latin teacher, always attends competitions in hopes to raise student morale. There are many teachers like her who care about their jobs. Teachers such as Mr. Phillips and Mrs. Manos are insightful and knowledgeable in their fields. This allows for a rigorous curriculum that fosters college readiness.
If your child is a minority, I recommend you send them elsewhere. ESL students are constantly being accused of partaking in illegal activities by students. Little repercussion towards students who make threats or say racist slurs. There is a huge drug scene with Marijuana, Xanax, Adderall, and acid being common drugs of choice. Academics are very good. Teachers who are not tenured are seen as disposable and some who are are seen as angels despite serious allegations towards a few. This school is due for serious reform including an attempt to remove de facto segregation. Disadvantaged students at this school fall far behind other students in the state.
