  • Few schools offer the high quality facilities and staff that Neptune H.S. has. The students have progressed to form a solid school community, where all students may excel. The kids really care and work hard, as does the fine staff.

  • As a now college student who once attended neptune i would not advise anyone to send their children here if they wanted them to get a good education. The school has greatly gone down hill over the years and they fail to meet state standards year after year. There are also many fights that go on during the school day and students have been arrested before
