A.C. Jones High School has given me an amazing high school experience along with great memories. My fellow classmates of A.C. Jones have made my high school experience so much better. The BISD employees self less, caring, and supportive faculty. The faculty doesn't just teach their lesson plan they listen to the students and all the problems whether it be school related or at home. All staff members try their best to accompany any special needs of each student. A.C.J offers many opportunities that not all schools have the privilege to such as dual enrollment and the Barnhart Foundation Program. Both of these programs have aided me and my peers in furthering and advancing our education. The AP classes offered are held to a rigors standard and high expectations challenging each student to reach their full potential.

At my school something I like is that some teachers are ready to go above and beyond to help you. A lot of the teachers had put effort into getting to know me and to build that relationship of trust and ensure me that it’s okay to not understand and ask questions. Something I’d like to change about my school is How the higher authority teachers (counselors, office workers, and assistant principals) feel like they can belitttle you and have favoritism.
My experience at A.C. Jones High School has been a really excellent one. Even though A.C. Jones is in a very small town they really do push their students to be the best within themselves and academically. The extracurricular activities have advanced within the four years that I have gone to this school. The example I have is that I participated in the band at this school for all four years of my high school career and out of those four we have gotten sweepstakes the last three years. Some minor changes could be made, but in the end the scholarship program within the school, and the things that some teachers do make up for those minor things.
