These numbers are reported by each district, so each jurisdiction is responsible for reporting their results fairly and accurately. But they are required by law to report them. ~ Mike Yaple (Spokesman for the state Department of Education)

We all hope our high schools do not make this list, but officials have put together a list of the schools in New Jersey with the highest "reported" cases of drug and alcohol incidents (latest data available). I spotted this article first published by the Patch and took it a little further.  Here are the Top 10 here in Ocean and Monmouth County:

    1. Toms River Regional 77*
    2. Freehold Regional 49*
    3. Jackson Township 31*
    4. Brick Township 27*
    5. Middletown 19*
    6. Lakewood 17*
    7. Long Branch 17*
    8. Southern Regional 17*
    9. Manasquan 14*
    10. Ocean Township 13*

* - number of reported cases

The Top 3 in the state overall were Paterson, Jersey City, and Elizabeth.
