Welcome to the Freehold Regional High School District
The FRHSD is located in western Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA. Our sending schools cover an area of over 200 square miles. We educate approximately 10,500 students in our six high schools.
Western Monmouth County, New Jersey, was originally settled in the seventeenth century. The field of the Battle of Monmouth, which occurred in 1777, is within the district's borders. Life in Monmouth County, however, has been much quieter throughout most of the region's history. Our county has primarily been a farming community, and also a chief source of marl and other resources. Recently, however, western Monmouth County has experienced tremendous residential growth. A large percentage of its residents are business owners and professionals, and many commute to New York City. The Freehold Regional High School District serves students from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds.
We place a high priority on student performance and staff accountability. More than 87 percent of our students pursue higher education, including the most prestigious colleges in the nation. At all of the high schools, SAT scores consistently exceed state and national averages.
The curriculum at each of our high schools is the same for all academic subjects. Every effort is made to keep special education students in district; a variety of in-class support, resource center, and self-contained programs are conducted.
Twelve specialized Magnet Programs are located throughout the district; all 8th-grade students from a sending school in our district are eligible to apply. Admission is competitive. If selected, students attend the school where the program is housed. Colts Neck is home to the Law & Public Service program and the Naval Junior ROTC program. Freehold High School has three programs: Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management, Computer Science, and Medical Sciences. At Freehold Township High School, the Animal & Botanical Sciences program and the Global Studies program are offered. Howell High School is home to the Fine & Performing Arts, as well as the Humanities program. Manalapan High School houses the Science & Engineering program and the Law Enforcement & Public Safety program. Finally, Marlboro High School contains the Business Administration magnet.
