The school has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools since 1974.
Marlboro High School opened in 1968 and served all students from Colts Neck Township until Colts Neck High School opened in 1998. Students at Marlboro High School all come from Marlboro Township, with other students from Marlboro attending Colts Neck High School. The Freehold Regional High School District serves students from Colts Neck Township, Englishtown, Farmingdale, Freehold Borough, Freehold Township, Howell Township, Manalapan Township and Marlboro Township.
As of the 2019–20 school year, the school had an enrollment of 1,813 students and 122.8 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 14.8:1. There were 91 students (5.0% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 16 (0.9% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.

Business Administration Magnet Program
The Business Administration Magnet Program, currently located at Marlboro High School, offers a four-year program of study to a limited number of academically motivated students who wish to develop their interests in the areas of business and management. The program is focused through the study of targeted courses, which include finance, management, economics, law, and computer technology.
Students are encouraged to apply and practice the academic knowledge gained in the classroom through participation in various competitions sponsored by the Future Business Leaders of America and the Federal Reserve Bank. These co-curricular activities, as well as other opportunities afforded by our close proximity to financial and corporate institutions in the greater metropolitan area, play an integral role in students' personal and academic growth. Students will be prepared to attend a college or university with a foundation secured in human relations skills, rigorous academic training, and an appreciation for both social and ethical responsibility.
The Marlboro High School Mustangs compete in Division A North of the Shore Conference, an athletic conference comprised of public and private high schools in Monmouth and Ocean counties, along the Jersey Shore.

In 2009, the boys' soccer team became A-North Shore Conference champions, the first time in school history.
