RBR rated as a high performance school in academic achievement and college and career readiness.

Red Bank taxpayers will see a slight decrease for the regional school portion of their tax bill for the 2013-2014 school year.
Red Bank Regional's recently-approved $24.9 million budget for next year decreased by 1.5 percent -- while maintaining all of the school's current programs -- yet it will still mean higher tax bills for two of its three sending districts. Little Silver and Shrewsbury homeowners will see an increase in that portion of their tax bills to support the $19 million levy, while Red Bank taxpayers -- whose students comprise 46.6 percent of the school's population -- will see a slight reduction. According to RBR Superintendent Jim Stefankiewicz, the increase in tax bills is the result of the loss of grants and other revenue sources requiring a greater percentage of the budget for next year to be funded through the local tax levy. The owner of an …

Faculty members stood outside again Friday morning as contract talks hit the 20-month mark.
For the second morning this week, Red Bank Regional staff members stood outside the high school on Friday during drop off as a reminder that their contract with the district expired almost two years ago.

The previous agreement with the board expired on June 30, 2011. Approximately 150 teachers and office personnel are employed by the board and represented by the association. Many Patch readers posted comments in support of the high school staff earlier in the week. "I commend the teachers for speaking out in a way that doesn't affect the students' education," wrote one reader. But many more readers …

A new morning traffic pattern has been implemented at the high school following a student video.
Red Bank Regional (RBR) High School implemented a new morning drop-off plan after a pair of intrepid students shed light on some less-than-stellar driving habits by some parents. Last month Jessica Olivera and Damian DeSena, who are students in Carl Grillo's graphic communications class, created a video showing parents ignoring RBR's designated drop-off area. Olivera and DeSena met with administrators and safety cones were put in place to adjust the traffic pattern and force cars to approach the drop-off after looping through the parking lot.
