Neptune High School strings along nothing but scholars! Teachers, guidance counselors, office ladies, and staff, are there to support students 100%. There are dozens of great opportunities within all students reach and so many spaces to fill. There is an opportunity for every student to stand out like a shining star and there is room for every out-going character in the building! There are so many chances to grow and be the change you want to see around you and Neptune is the place to do it. I was Neptune High Schools pep rally leader, football manager, and Class of 2018’s Mistress of Ceremony. Neptune is where all of my dreams have been fulfilled and I intend on giving back to my community when I am successful and obtain the career I always wanted.

This school has its perks. Being a student athlete at this school is a plus because you get to know many people and form bonds with your team. On the other side of the spectrum however, most teachers just teach to get paid and don't care to help students when they are in need of a boost. Administration is completely corrupt and they only do what seems right to them. They may not see the changes they have made, but the students do! Taking away sports and clubs and changing events that students have become accustomed to is just the start. While I do love my school and wouldn't want to go anywhere else, the bad outweighs the good in this case.
Neptune High School is a diverse school with many opportunities for students that attend here. The education here is decent but of course like all typical High schools not really necessary. An abundant amount of information that you will gather from Neptune High School won't be used ever again in life and you'll forget about it quickly. The teachers are usually helpful but there are the occasional teachers that feel as if you should easily process courses and that should never be the case. Personally, my experience at Neptune was not at all what I was expecting. You will experience or witness drama, fights, and disrespectful students here but the focus is receiving your diploma and walking that stage. That's the mission.
