Point Pleasant Beach High School
#2 Best High Schools for STEM in Ocean County
- Point Pleasant Beach School District, NJ
- 135 reviews
Senior: 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!

- 209 reviews
Senior: My High Schools offers a multitude of extracurriculars, so I am very grateful to have had the chance to join over 10 clubs myself. The staff is also incredible, and I would not exchange the relationships I have made with my teachers for anything. They are always willing to stay after hours to help their students with classes, or anything they need. The teachers are supportive as well, and they are more than willing to help students with college concerns.

Toms River High School North
#6 Best High Schools for STEM in Ocean County
- Toms River Regional School District, NJ
- 321 reviews
Senior: Walking through the doors of High School North the diversity is amazing. You can find every single type of student you can think of, and every one of those students is provided with resources they will enjoy. TRN includes over 45 clubs, more being created by students every year. Personally, my favorite thing about my high school is the teachers. I can guarantee anyone that will get a chance to spend a day at north will meet more than one teacher that absolutely loves their job. I can not describe how much I appreciate the staff. Another thing I really do love about HSN is the atmosphere. My favorite thing to do in my free time is to find out a sports game that night, and go support the team with a big crowd. Also, the arts (both performing and musical) are well loved throughout the school. The halls are always decorated, and school spirit weeks are huge! One of the only things I would change about my school is the time we start the day, because 7:00 is extremely early.

Donovan Catholic High School
#7 Best High Schools for STEM in Ocean County
- Private School
- Toms River, NJ
- 157 reviews
Parent: VERY family oriented! The high school is on the same campus as parish church,nthe preschool, grade school and middle school so all school-age children have a chance to interact during holidays, concerts, and other occasions. The clubs, performing arts programs and athletics are dynamic. There is something for everyone!
While the school works with students of various abilities, special emphasis is put toward the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs- the latter of which is only offered at 14 other school in the whole state of NJ!
DON'T let the idea of tuition stop you from sending your child here! There are many options for payment plans, financial assistance, work-study, etc. DEFINITELY worth a look!
