Southern Regional School District Reviews

It's an average to above average school system. My kids find school easier than most so it's hard to find a problem with their education. The culture is typical of most public schools. The top athletes and top academic performers act with the typical superiority that you find in most schools. They participate in the same bullying that occurrs in most schools. The school does what it can, but it's up to the kids to change that culture.

Southern Regional is filled with friendly faces. The students are hard-working and push themselves to become the best version of themselves. Other than being hard-working in the books, the students work just as hard on any field. Southern dominates in sports. Of course, none of this could be possible without the amazing faculty.
It’s great. Had a great. There is a lot of mean girls but ya know every where has those. Really enjoyed the sports and academics. I ended up graduating and going to an Ivy League college. Always loved my teachers and it was incredibly easy to make friends. No one likes the middle school principal, but she is only in charge for two years. Manahawkin and the surrounding towns are nice and safe. Putting your children in Southern Regional would not be a mistake. It is the best school I’ve been to and I have moved around. Always safe with guards and security. They practice drills and are prepared for anything. Go to Southern.
