I am a senior at MRHS and I have had so much fun these past 4 years. The school gives its students so many opportunities to get involved and participate in school functions -- and that is what it is all about! I have formed bonds with my classmates that I know will last for a long time. All of my teachers throughout high school truly care for their students and want to give us the best education possible. I couldn't have asked for a better high school!

Very diverse and accepting community! The staff makes sure tat students understand the material, and wish that their students have the best possible attempts at achieving any future goals.
Overall, my time at Matawan Regional High School has undoubtedly been both a critical and positive influence on my life. By attending this school, I not only made friends that I'm certain I will keep for the rest of my life, but obtained skills and knowledge that I know will help me in future endeavors, whether they be academic or not. All of the teachers I've had over the years have not only been super friendly, but have truly cared about my success. Additionally, there are a plethora of clubs, sports, and activities to get involved with, as some of these extracurriculars have helped me discover things about myself I never knew existed. Matawan Regional High School has been a close knit, academically enriching and extremely exciting place for me to have spent my last four years, and I will miss it so much when I leave.
