Our Demographics
Our school is a 7-12 comprehensive regional high school district. Our middle school covers grades 7-8 and our high school covers grades 9-12. The district is comprised of the constituent members of Stafford Township, Beach Haven, Long Beach Township, (which includes the municipalities of Loveladies, North Beach, High Bar Harbor and Brant Beach and Long Beach Township) Barnegat Light, Harvey Cedars, Ship Bottom,  and Surf City. Waretown is our sending district. The current districts population is approximately 3,100 students with 2,100 students in grades 9-12.

Southern Regional offers over 200 courses from which students can select. The courses are designed to appeal to a wide variety of student interests. Advanced placement courses are offered in English, history, mathematics, science, art, music, and world languages. Technology-related courses, from the traditional to the highly technical (electronics, graphics and photography lab, computer assisted design, programming, and Internet), focus on problem solving, experimental design, and creativity.

The health and physical education program are electives, based with a strong emphasis on lifelong wellness and making intelligent lifestyle choices. Project Adventure, an outdoor education program, and behind the wheel driver education are also offered. Additionally, Southern Regional boasts an “Honor Unit” Air Force Junior ROTC program, which concentrates on aerospace science, leadership training, and community service. The special needs of our students are addressed as well. We offer self-contained, resource, adaptive success, and in-class support programs.

In addition to the academic programs, Southern Regional offers students over 70 CO-curricular and interscholastic programs.
