The teachers don’t prepare you for what’s waiting outside of the classroom, the amount of work assigned compared to the actual rigor of the courses is unreasonable. Unless you’re taking mostly AP and honors classes, you don’t do anything in class. The sports teams are over hyped and over rated, the coaches vary from borderline abusive to extremely laid back and almost none of them produce any wins. The other main extra curriculars include the drama club and the band which are both very time demanding leaving little to no time to be too serious about anything else. The overall vibe at the school from the students isn’t good.
My experience in the JSD was very positive, great teachers who are very supportive of their students and teaching-oriented. Plans to go back to school after the quarantine are also very organized and I feel safe knowing these plans.
