I had a great time at Jackson Memorial High School. I enjoyed the different clubs that you could join as well as the sports. For the most part, my teachers were understanding and caring individuals. I enjoyed the JROTC program that was there. My track and wrestling coaches were great coaches and They made all four years of participating in sports very fulfilling and fun. However, I wish I was more prepared for college. I wish the SAT wasn’t as costly and that the importance of that test was reinforced to me more. I was a student that had a 4.3 gpa, top 20 percent of my class, and ended up attending Ocean County College. I think I missed a couple opportunities that I was unaware of at the time and the school didn’t help me that much in that area.

Overall my four years spent at Jackson Memorial were full of memories I will never forget. I gained my closest, most caring friends at this school. The school spirit flowed through the halls making it hard to feel like you did not belong. I made great relationships with teachers who educated me to be where I am today, in college. The football games were a symbol of unity, and you could find almost all of the school there. I was the captain of Varsity Volleyball and I felt as if that position shaped me into the leader I am today. They offered various courses, AP, honors, and many clubs as well. Some of the schools physical conditions were poor but overall I could deal with it. These four years were definitely not wasted and I would do them all over again if I could.
Jackson Memorial High School is one of the best schools for an all-around experience. The academics are well above average with some of the best teachers teaching many different subjects. Sports is a big pride at JMHS with very successful football, wrestling, soccer, and baseball programs. Coaches get the best out of their players in addition to keeping their grades in line. JMHS does a great job of preparing students for college by offering many Advanced placement classes. These classes can be accepted at select universities based on the grade received in the class.
