The Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (often abbreviated RFH) is a regional, four-year comprehensive public high school and school district, serving students in ninth through twelfth grades from the suburban communities of Fair Haven and Rumson, which are situated on a peninsula bounded by the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers and the Atlantic Ocean, in northern Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.[5] The school has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools since 1940.[4]

Rumson-Fair Haven High School receives students from two middle schools, Forrestdale Middle School of the Rumson School District and Knollwood School of the Fair Haven Public Schools, as well as from private schools, including Rumson Country Day School and Holy Cross School.

As of the 2015-16 school year, the school had an enrollment of 987 students and 81.8 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.1:1. There were 3 students (0.3% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and none eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[1]

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "J", the highest of eight groupings. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.[6]

History[edit]

The facility, constructed with aid from the Works Progress Administration and completed in 1936, is located in Rumson. Students from Fair Haven began attending as soon as the new school opened and the regional district was established in 1956.[7] Since its original construction, the school facility has had three significant additions.

In the fall of 2004, information about Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School and several other U.S. schools was recovered from a CD found on the body of a dead Iraqi insurgent killed in Baghdad. It was discovered from the body of an Iraqi physicist, the son of a member of the Iraqi Ba'ath Party. The man's father had a strong connection to the al-Qaeda terrorist network. The information pertaining to RFH did not include floor plans, but did contain information about the school's vandalism and bullying policies. The CD also contained information about radon and depleted uranium. The recent Beslan school hostage crisis in which 385 people were killed, half of them students, was compared to the school because RFH, like the Russian school, had construction under way. Police patrols around the school were increased in response to the potential threat.[8][9][10]

Awards, recognition and rankings[edit]

In 2011, Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School was one of 14 schools in the state, and one of two public high schools, selected by the United States Department of Education with recognition with the National Blue Ribbon School Award of Excellence.[11]

The school was the 10th-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 339 schools statewide in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2014 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", using a new ranking methodology.[12] The school had also been ranked 10th in the state of 328 schools in 2012, after being ranked 31st in 2010 out of 322 schools listed.[13] The magazine ranked the school 30th in 2008 out of 316 schools.[14] The school was ranked 33rd in the magazine's September 2006 issue, which included 316 schools across the state.[15] Schooldigger.com ranked the school tied for 49th out of 381 public high schools statewide in its 2011 rankings (a decrease of 19 positions from the 2010 ranking) which were based on the combined percentage of students classified as proficient or above proficient on the mathematics (91.9%) and language arts literacy (97.9%) components of the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA).[16]

In its listing of "America's Best High Schools 2016", the school was ranked 144th out of 500 best high schools in the country; it was ranked 26th among all high schools in New Jersey and 13th among the state's non-magnet schools.[17]

In its 2013 report on "America's Best High Schools", The Daily Beast ranked the school 269th in the nation among participating public high schools and 21st among schools in New Jersey.[18]

In the 2011 "Ranking America's High Schools" issue by The Washington Post, the school was ranked 51st in New Jersey and 1,606th nationwide.[19] The school was ranked in 1,181st place, the 40th-highest in New Jersey, in Newsweek magazine's 2010 rankings of America's Best High Schools.[20] In Newsweek's May 22, 2007 issue, ranking the country's top high schools, Rumson-Fair Haven High School was listed in 1108th place, the 35th-highest ranked school in New Jersey.[21]

The school was the winner of the National Fed Challenge in 2004, and had done well in subsequent years, making it to the District Finals in 2005 and 2008. In 2008, Rumson-Fair Haven was defeated by Marlboro High School, although, the team put up a stellar performance.[22]

In 2008, the school was the national winner of the Euro Challenge, an economics competition sponsored by the European Delegation to the United States and the Moody's Foundation.[23]
