Manasquan High School Reviews

There are many good aspects to this school such as having great teachers. However there are also many negative factors of this school that led me to giving it an average rating. While many activities are well funded such as football, the school ignores the needs of the sports that are more niche such as track. Being a winter track athlete, we can't even get access to the shed where the equipment is stored. In my first two years of high school I also participated in activities such as innovation lab where students had the opportunity to experiment with technology such as 3D printers. I only participated in Innovation lab for two years was because it was a disaster. The 3D printers were always in disrepair since the school would never buy new parts. The largest problem however, is the complete lack of competent administrators. The administration at Manasquan High School refuses to take the advice of those underneath them, this is the root of all the issues at Manasquan High School.

There are many clubs and activities to participate in...and the sports teams are awesome! The Academy of Finance program is a great addition to the school. If you're interested in business, it's a wonderful opportunity to earn college credits while taking classes.
I am a student at MHS who is involved in a lot of things that go on. I have NO idea what one or two of the reviews were talking about when they said teacher, student, coach affairs. Yes, a teacher is dating another staff member in the school but no teacher or coach is dating a student. Whether that statement was misconstrued or whatever, that is not what happens here.
Squan is a pretty good school. You have a mix of everyone. As an honors and AP student, you get a lot of work but I feel as though you are prepared. But some honors classes are more of a joke and busy work is often given out. The same can be said for certain APs. Some teachers dont care and give busy work, it happens. High school is what you make of it, so if you go here, ignore the rumors you hear or whatever, and come in open minded. Some kids do drugs, a lot of kids drink - but you don't have to do any of that stuff. Not much pressure. Be yourself, have fun, you'll find friends even if you think you won't!
