We thank you for taking time to learn more about what our high school and district have to offer students. The faculty and staff at Jersey Shore High School are committed to helping all students succeed. We aspire to create a positive learning environment that helps our learners grow in a way that will positively impact our society. At the high school, our main objective is to provide students with a structured path to graduation that prepares all students to enter the workforce, attend college, or join the military. Regardless of the path chosen by the student, we want all students to be prepared so that they have a choice. We encourage our students to set high expectations for their performance and be self-disciplined in conduct, attendance, and attitude. 

Mission Statement

WE BELIEVE that healthy student/teacher relationships arise from learning environments with VARIED INSTRUCTION, CLEAR EXPECTATIONS, CONSISTENT DISCIPLINE, and POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT.  These practices FOSTER intrinsic MOTIVATION, increased FOCUS, and life-longer LEARNERS.  We further believe that meaningful RELATIONSHIPS between staff, parents (family), and students are best accomplished by establishing a culture of mutual RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, and RESOURCEFULNESS as modeled by the school board, administration, teachers and support staff.
