Southern Regional School District (29-4950)

Southern Regional School District

The Southern Regional High School District is located 65 miles east of Philadelphia, 90 miles south of New York City, and 40 miles north of Atlantic City and has a long and storied tradition for providing excellence in teaching and learning. Ever since the creation of the district in 1957, we have been leaders in offering the most current effective and innovative instructional experiences. This success can be attributed to a highly qualified staff as well as to the involvement of the community in our schools. Whenever there has been a need, the community has come forward to support the district in its many challenges.

Constituent municipalities are Barnegat Light, Beach Haven, Harvey Cedars, Long Beach Township, Ship Bottom, Stafford Township and Surf City. Ocean Township (Waretown) is a sending municipality that has students enrolled on a tuition basis.

The Southern Regional School District includes a middle school and a high school. The middle school contains grades seven and eight and has an enrollment of 939 students. The high school consists of grades nine through twelve and has an enrollment of 1,965 students. The high school is organized around the house concept; a 9-10 House and an 11-12 House. Each house has separate core facilities while sharing special use facilities.

Both the district and the communities it serves are unique. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey, the Southern community is rich in tradition and culture. The area is resort-based with many family-owned businesses serving tourism which is a significant element of the local economy. The Southern Regional schools are very comprehensive in their course offerings. To meet a variety of student goals and interests, they offer a curriculum rich in both academics and life skills. A broad program of study includes a wide array of advanced placement and elective courses. The program of study, along with detailed current information can be viewed on the district’s web page www.srsd.net.
