Beach Haven School Principal’s Message:

Welcome to the Beach Haven School, currently in its 122nd year of service. We pride ourselves in taking advantage of our small size which enables our talented staff to forge personal relationships with their students. As proof of the effectiveness of our approach, our students scored highest in Ocean County in the NJ ASK (Assessment of Skills and Knowledge) achievement test during the 2008 school year. We try to combine academic achievement and personal growth through a combination of demanding curricula and personal attention, and we think our results speak for themselves. We hope you enjoy our web site; feel free to contact us or stop in for a visit. 


Long Beach Island students attend Southern Regional School District in Manahakin, NJ for Middle School (grades 7-8) and High School (grades 9-12).
