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.
Jackson Memorial High School has made my high school career absolutely incredible. The teacher's are magnificent and are always trying to do anything they possibly can to make sure their students learn efficiently. The students are also amazing and the student body is extremely accepting! Students have so much spirit. We are blessed to have many, many AP classes to choose from, and our students make very good marks on testing.
