HistoryEdit

Manasquan High School opened at its current site in 1931.[1]

Students from Wall Township, New Jersey had attended the school until Wall High School opened in September 1959 for grades 7-11, while students in twelfth grade that year attended Manasquan High School. The Manasquan district ended the sending/receiving relationship with Wall in 1957, due to overcrowding at the Manasquan school, which went into effect when the new Wall High School was opened.[8][9]

Manasquan High School had been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools from 1935[10] until 2011, when the school's accreditation status was removed.[11]
