FRHSD Selected by Forbes as a "Best Employer" in New Jersey

The Freehold Regional High School District (FRHSD) has been selected as a “best employer” in New Jersey by Forbes magazine. 

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to pinpoint the organizations liked best by employees in the first-ever ranking of America’s best employers by state. In New Jersey, the Freehold Regional High School District came in at number 17, rubbing elbows with companies like Costco and Amazon. 

FRHSD is located in western Monmouth County, covering an area of over 200 square miles. We educate approximately 10,800 students in our six high schools and have approximately 1,300 faculty and staff members. At FRHSD, a high priority is placed 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. Our students’ success is the result of an outstanding family of staff who make extraordinary contributions to student academic achievement. 

“I am very proud to have our district appear in the top employers list by Forbes. All of our staff work tirelessly to bring a high-quality educational experience to all of our students. As a regionalized system, we are able to provide unique learning experiences for our students like our Magnet Programs, while also providing career-enhancing programs for our staff, like the Aspiring Administrators Academy,” Superintendent Charles B. Sampson said. 

Dr. Sampson added, “It is deeply troubling that some of our state leaders do not pay attention to honors like this and ignore the fact that our district is one of the most financially efficient and academically exceptional in New Jersey. We continue to provide stellar programs and services while spending approximately $3,000 less per pupil than like districts across the state. Funding cuts such as legislative action S2 will destroy us and change the face of education for both our students and dedicated staff.”
