Long Branch High School offers a wide variety of classes, including various AP courses. I believe that this provided exceptional educational opportunities in the classroom, allowing students to study based on their interest and passions. A wide range of supplies were available to all students, making the means for quality education more accessible. The environment is welcoming and caring, with a large staff who keeps the students in its best interest. Many measures were taken daily in order to ensure the safety and comfort of each and every student attending the school. Overall I felt I had an extremely positive experience at LBHS, with a range of activities and clubs to continue to stimulate the brain and body outside of the classroom.

Long Branch High School offers great opportunities and education, to those who are already inclined and driven. Although opportunities are plentiful, and AP classes are free with free tests, the large number of students makes it difficult to feel like everyone is exposed to this. Great bilingual programs and diversity, however.
Long Branch is very diverse, but the school overall can be toxic. Focusing on the wrong things like enforcing uniforms or the football team getting new gear. Faculty tend to overlook students and their feelings just because they are too busy. The diversity has helped me grow as a person though, giving me the chance to see all types of ethnicity and races. I plan on sending my children to Long Branch High School because I wouldn't be who I am today if I didn't attend this school.
