It is the sister high school of Jackson Liberty High School, which opened in the late summer of 2006.

As of the 2015-16 school year, the school had an enrollment of 1,599 students and 116.9 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 13.7:1. There were 159 students (9.9% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 65 (4.1% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.[1]

Contents History

Jackson Memorial High School first opened in 1964 as Jackson Junior-Senior High School. Before then, students living in Jackson attended Lakewood High School. The school was originally a single, one story building with three wings. Around 1970, a second story was added to one wing. In the 1980s, it was expanded to include the nearby middle school which became known as the Clayton building. The original high school building was known as the memorial building in the early 1990s; later it was renamed the Bernie Reider Hall, for a longtime wrestling coach and former principal. The Fine Arts building, added ca. 1993, connects the once separate Clayton building, previously a middle school, and the two-story Bernie Reider Hall.

Awards, recognition and rankings

The school was the 115th-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 339 schools statewide in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2014 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", using a new ranking methodology.[3] The school had been ranked 188th in the state of 328 schools in 2012, after being ranked 181st in 2010 out of 322 schools listed.[4] The magazine ranked the school 216th in the magazine's September 2008 issue, which surveyed 316 schools across the state.[5] Schooldigger.com ranked the school 166th out of 381 public high schools statewide in its 2011 rankings (a decrease of 22 positions from the 2010 ranking) which were based on the combined percentage of students classified as proficient or above proficient on the mathematics (80.8%) and language arts literacy (94.1%) components of the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA).[6]

Athletics

The Jackson Memorial High School Jaguars[2] compete in the Shore Conference, an athletic conference made up of private and public high schools centered at the Northern Jersey Shore.[7] All schools in this conference are located within Monmouth County and Ocean County, and the league operates under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA).[8] With 1,194 students in grades 10-12, the school was classified by the NJSIAA for the 2015-16 school year as South Jersey, Group IV for most athletic competition purposes, which included schools with an enrollment of 1,082 to 1,934 students in that grade range.[9]

Jackson is a powerhouse in many sports and its key rivals are Southern Regional, Toms River South, Toms River North, Toms River East, Brick Memorial and Brick Township.

'I was in Sayreville at this place called Close Encounters with my buddies in Stone Henge,' a band formed with friends from Jackson Memorial High School in the mid-80's, Mr. Wylde said in a recent phone interview from Columbus, Ohio, where he was touring in support of Mafia (Artemis), a Black Label disc that entered the Billboard Independent Album chart at No. 1 last March."
