SHORE REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT
NEW JERSEY REPORT CARD
2015-2016 SCHOOL YEAR

Shore Regional High School, located in West Long Branch, Monmouth County New Jersey, is a comprehensive secondary school that proudly serves the communities of Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Sea Bright, and West Long Branch. The beautiful ten-acre campus is situated on the banks of Franklin Lake in the borough of West Long Branch. As of the 2014-2015 school year, 625 students attended Shore Regional High School.

Recognized as one of America's Top High Schools in Newsweek, New Jersey Monthly and the Washington Post, Shore Regional's exceptional faculty consistently nurture, engage and challenge students throughout an educational program resplendent with academic rigor. Each student is required to complete 135 credits to graduate, 15 credits beyond the current state mandate. Shore Regional is proud to offer numerous honors, advanced placement, International Baccalaureate, and embedded dual-credit college prep college courses on campus through Monmouth University. As a result of our A/B Block schedule, Shore Regional affords students the opportunity to pursue interests in the fine, practical, and performing arts. These diverse course offerings, as well as co-curricular and athletic activities are designed to develop an educational program best suited to students' individual abilities, needs, and career goals.

Encompassed in the program of studies is deep student engagement with the Common Core Standards. Shore Regional encourages and supports students to extend beyond their learning beyond state mandates, evidenced by the addition of a fourth year of Social Studies and Mathematics/S.T.E.M. as graduation requirements. One of the greatest indicators of Shore Regional's commitment to academic excellence is the designation it received as an International Baccalaureate World School. Shore Regional High School was the first comprehensive high school in Monmouth County to offer this prestigious program. Shore Regional's International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme enables students to delve into a full liberal arts curriculum that stresses the interdependence of content areas and the importance of international-mindedness in a global society. Through a rigorous inquiry and assessment process, the program serves as a rigorous alternative to our already established, thriving Advanced Placement curriculum.

At the core of our district's philosophy is the concept that students come first and foremost. We strive to put "students first". Students should be the primary recipients of our resources. As such, our belief is that our program of studies, along with special services, vocational, community, and college partnerships, assist each student in becoming a life-long learner and a productive citizen. Our end goal is to produce altruistic graduates with unlimited capacity to compete in a superior manner in any challenge they undertake in any walk of life; utilizing learned 21st century college/career readiness skills, coping skills, and critical thinking skills.
