Violence, vandalism, weapons, drug use and bullying are no longer confined to the urban areas of New Jersey anymore ~ Toms River Patch

The latest findings are out with Jersey Shore school violence.  The new data includes assaults, fights, and threats. In a recent Patch article, the findings were released by the Department of Education as part of its most recent report on Violence, Vandalism and Substance Abuse in New Jersey Schools, using 2015-16 statistics.

Here are the Top 10 Jersey Shore School Districts with the most reported violence.  Brick tops the Ocean County schools, while Neptune is atop the Monmouth County list.

Here are the Top 10:

  1. NEPTUNE TWP 81*
  2. BRICK 78*
  3. TOMS RIVER REGIONAL 57*
  4. FREEHOLD REGIONAL 51*
