Before you know it, graduation season will be in full swing, and once again school will be out for summer. But, before class is dismissed, let's go back to when it all started for Mainland Regional High School in beautiful Linwood, New Jersey.

Mainland Regional High School is home for students from the Linwood, Northfield and Somers Point areas.

During the 1997-98 school year, Mainland received the highest honor that an American school can achieve as they were recognized by the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program!

Let's flashback to when it all began for this prestigious high school, thanks to YouTube user, Bob Loper. Check out this throwback video from the early days of Mainland Regional, and see what is was like to be a Mustang more than 55 school years ago!
