Jackson Memorial High School Reviews
Jackson Memorial High School is one of the best institutions in NJ. It has great academics, superior athletics, and great teachers. This school should be nationally recognized for school spirit and their football student section is a once in a lifetime experience. I urge you to send your kids to such an amazing public school. I am a senior and I graduate next week and I am honestly heartbroken and am going to miss my Jaguar family. I am glad this school provided me with a superior education unlike any other schools in our area. I am going to a great university and feel well prepared due to JMHS!
My experience at Jackson Memorial High School was overall very enjoyable. I was able to meet a lot of new people, keep my grades up, and get involved with extracurricular activities such as stage crew and the film program. From my experience, the film program at Jackson Memorial is quite advanced. The same can be said about the musical program as the experiences you gain from participating in it does not get much better than this. Some things I wish were improved upon would be the food and the college readiness. Regarding the food, I've stopped buying lunches by senior year because it's just not good. Secondly, the college readiness is also absolutely horrendous. There's no real initiative from the school that forcibly engages students into learning how to apply to schools. To sum it all up, my good experiences at Jackson Memorial High School far outweighed my less appealing memories, therefore I would recommend it to anyone looking to attend public high school in Jackson, New Jersey.
Going from a catholic school to a public school, no words could describe the amount of fear I had inside. However, the staff and students in the Jackson School District made me feel nothing but comfortable. While attending this school for 4 years, I made some many unbreakable bonds with students that I now call family and teachers that have helped me build success. The theme of tradition at JMHS is something I will carry with forever because it taught me nothing but family and fun.
