    For PM students: You will take a bus from your home high school at mid-day and be transported to the COAST. At the end of the day, you will take a bus from the COAST to your home.

The COAST follows all BCS policies regarding appropriate pick ups and drop offs, and students may not leave campus with anyone not on their PowerSchool Contact pick up list, per BCS Policy 4210

    Cell Phones:

    Students will be expected to follow their individual teachers policy of cell phones/electronics in the classroom.

    Testing schedule will be announced closer to test dates (May 21 – 28, 2020). Students will receive a handout in class with the test schedule, and it will be posted to this website as well.

    The COAST testing schedule is always created in collaboration with North, South and West Brunswick High School’s testing schedules. For some students, this may mean a change in a bus pick up or drop off during testing. Home high school Assistant Principal’s will be able to assist with bus information.
