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.

The experience was quite exceptional. I was able to make new friends even though I transferred in during my junior year. The faculty was quite kind and welcoming and the students were as well. The academics prepared me for college l, putting me ahead as the teachers prepared me enough for me to place out of calculus one as well as physics one. Lunch was chaotic, I believe if they implemented two separated lunches, the experience may have been lighter on the staff at food service. Find a place to sit was difficult, especially for people who are not acclimated with the their classmates. The lunch lines were also quite long, taking up to twenty minutes of our designated lunch time. Sports are quite exhilarating as being part of a team, and dedicated to winning introduces an intimate relationship among students participating in sports.
Colts Neck High school was a great high school and definitely one of the best in the district. the academics at Colts Neck are great and many of the teachers are dedicated to their students success. Plus CNHS has air conditioning! The school could work on how much support the arts get, most funding goes towards a football team that is not very good :(
