Southern Regional is an amazing school that I am very fortunate to be attending. The academics are superb and we are learning at a very high level. I'm grateful for the opportunities they have given me and the friends I have made. However, I am a part of the theatre company which I love and adore. They have helped me grow as a person and a performer, but I wish we received more acknowledgement from those who are at a higher level at our school. For example, our musicals are rarely NOT sold out, however, we are still a school that is tied to theatre censorship. Theatre is a form of expression and some of the most difficult pieces to perform are most definitely the ones rated higher than G. We should be challenged with theatre that is more difficult and I feel we should receive more credit than we do. My school is very focused on sports, although, certain sports that are viewed on a high pedestal do not win as often as they should considering the love and honor they are given.
Southern Regional is by far the best high school in Ocean County. Southern has excellent academics, with teachers and staff who try their best to help you succeed. The school has a top athletic program that rivals top programs in New Jersey. And not to mention the safety of this school. Southern has multiple security officers on at all times and a Full-Time Stafford Township officer employed as well.
