    If you have a child that struggles academically don't take the chance by placing them in Randolph schools. This district is so focused on high test scores that they dismiss the "average" performers and focus on the AP students. Drugs are prevalent and unfortunately affluence contributes to that problem. In the last few years the district has laid off the most experienced teachers to cut costs by hiring newbies right out of college.

    I think that compared to other schools RHS is pretty good. However I just feel like a number on a chart. Its all about test scores and not about LEARNING and remembering material. I love the music program especially the musicals but overall there is too much stress to the point where getting a B as a final grade seems like the end of the world to most students.

    Just heard that Mr. Austin from the High School was not picked to be the new Vice Princpal at the Middle School!! Is this true? Has it been voted on yet by the Board? Is there anything we can do about it? Send around a petition?

    This is a great school. I am currently a student attending it. There is an award winning band program and great athletics. Academically speaking it's near the top. Most of the teachers care deeply about the success of their pupils. Although a few seem to only be teachers because they needed a job. Overall it's a great school which has opened many doors for me.

    My son has excellent teachers terrific guidance outstanding academic and athletic programs and most important he is loving his experience at Randolph High School. Keep up the great work and thank you for educating our children.

    Randolph High School is not very big in size so there's a feeling of community among the students. In terms of recreation Randolph High School still needs to improve - the bands and sports teams are nice but they are not top caliber. Academics are near mid to top tier for public schools. Having been a student at Randolph High School I think that it's a school that allows kids to grow up without a lot of stress or pressure - both from school studies and from peers. You are able to grow on your own at your own pace with relatively little peer pressure because the town is very suburban and so is its attitude/environment. You're relatively far from the city and so your kids are rather protected moreso than schools in say Bergen County for example.

    Fantastic school with caring teachers and high academic standards. Graduates are well prepared for college especially in writing. Great sports teams an award winning band top notch Forensics team and an incredible Mass Media program. The Art Show has showcased some fabulous artists. The new beautiful new addition has alleviated crowding and lunch is more relaxed with the new scheduling in place. Students are happy engaged and active in community service projects.

    I am not impressed by the teachers in the English Department this year. My son is a freshman and he is able to finish his reading in 2 days. Shouldn't the teachers provide a more challenging curriculum?

    The musical program is being ignored and pushed away while programs that aren't needed are prioritized. Getting rid of fourth period lunch and messing up schedules and caring more about numbers than the actual students is ridiculous. NONE of the students want it. Personally I think our school needs to focus on our happiness and what we care about than how high we rank in the charts.

    Academically well-rounded with many teachers being favorably remembered years down the line. Music program was excellent providing playing opportunities in musicals marching band jazz band musical revues various small ensembles. Facilities for practice were good. Athletics were well-funded and attended. The school always did well at least at the regional level if not the state.

    Both my children have gone to ANLC since they were 5 years old. ANLC is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my daughter graduates this year. Thank you ANLC for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!

    Excellent school; wonderful track record; my son and daughter are in this school and I have only good things to say. All kinds of music programs are available and there is a ton emphasis on all extra curricular activities including sports and games.
