Jaluit High School (JHS) is a secondary school in Jabor, Jaluit Atoll, Marshall Islands. It is a part of the Marshall Islands Public School System.

The school serves the following atolls and islands in the south of the country: Jaluit, Ailinglaplap, Ebon, Jabat, Kili, Namdrik, and Namu.[1]

It has a boarding program for students from distant atolls and islands.[2]


The first phase of the campus was built between the late 1960s to the middle of the 1970s, a period when several other public high schools were built in the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.[3]

The school, the second public high school in the Marshall Islands, opened in 1975.[4] The South Korean company Hanil built the campus. Initially it served grade 9 only and had 110 students.[5]

In 1999 the Marshall Islands Journal published comments from a parent who criticized the dormitories of Jaluit High.[6]
