Rahway Public School District Reviews

What like about Rahway public schools is that the teachers always provide the best advice for their students to succeed in the future. Also, the environment at Rahway High School is always kind and motivation. What I would like to see change is the amount of time to prepare before a test is given. Although, with majority of us are in AP classes I feel with a little more time to study we would be more proficient.

Rahway Public School District is overall a good place to be. The middle school and high school are right next to each other. Most of the staff in each school cares about the kids and their education, but there are a few that don't. The school should fund the arts programs more and listen to the kids ideas more.
I have attended Rahway public schools my whole life. The high school offers a wide range of academic programs. There are countless after school and extra curricular programs. The performing arts program was spectacular when I attended and has only gotten better.
