Lower taxes for Fair Haven and higher for Rumson
It's one of three school district budgets in the Rumson-Fair Haven area that has been adopted and it represents good tax break news for Fair Haven residents and not so good for Rumson. In taking the $16.9 million 2013-14 Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School budget, with a $15.6 million tax levy, on the road, school officials revealed that this year's budget represents roughly a 70/30 split in costs between Rumson and Fair Haven and falls right at the state-mandated 2 percent spending cap. Staying within the cap for increasing spending and levying taxes means that the budget will not have to be put to voters in November. It all translates into an increase of $18.60 per $100,000 of assessed property value in Rumson, or a total rate per $…

When the bell rings, or buzzer buzzes, at 7:45 a.m. Thursday at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, it will be signaling the start of the 2012-13 school year in what has been deemed by New Jersey Monthly as the top high school in Monmouth County.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012
The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association released its classifications this week for the upcoming high school football season, following the executive committee's approval to create a Group V designation in the four public school sections in May. Among the classifications are Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School and Red Bank Catholic. "This creates a greater opportunity for schools and for student-athletes," Jack DuBois, NJSIAA assistant director who is in charge of football, said following the approval. "It increases the number of teams playing in the playoffs from 128 to 160. At the same time, it eliminates 16 consolation games that schools didn't want to play anyway."
