It’s nice that they offer a MacBook Air to all students since 6th grade that you take home and return at the end of each year. Although some teachers do not allow work on laptop which is ridiculous considering what’s the point of having them. Certain teachers mostly in the history department and English do not teach at all, but that’s every school so. I have been attending point pleasant beach since 6th grade and it’s certainly a nice place for students to go. Students from here are seen differently because of our academic standings. We are the #1 school in ocean county!

Point Pleasant Beach High School is a great school to get a high school education and the curriculum is well taught. However, many changes have been made within the past year that aren't and have never been justified by the administration. There is no communication between the students and staff and the administration. If a problem is addressed, we never get an answer. My freshmen-junior year was great, but my senior year was ruined slightly by the choices that the administration has made such as strict snow day policy, safety "concerns", etc. Communication would be greatly appreciated by the students and staff. Otherwise, we all receive a fantastic education.
Point Pleasant Beach High School for me was a great school. Kind students, kind and invested teachers, sanitary place. Although, the school lacks much diversity there have been no incidences in which there have been any racial problems. The school is small with a small amount of students which allows everyone to know each other. Small classrooms allow for a smaller student to teacher ratio allowing for more personal attention in most classes. Sports life is highly viewed by many, and a large amount of students participate in sports. However, since the school isn't large, there isn't a large option of classes and diverse material to choose from, nonetheless, it still gives many important and for many sufficient enough classes.
