Jacksonville City Schools system is a very well-rounded school system, as well as community. The administration works diligently in becoming apart of the students' school career. Most teachers truly and genuinely care about their students. I am thankful for the opportunity of growing up in the Jacksonville City Schools system.

Jacksonville City Schools is a great school district some things stick out more than others. I feel Jacksonville has focused more on sports and athletics than academic achievement in the past 5 years. Don’t get me wrong Jacksonville has prepared me for the past 9 years I have been enrolled but I feel academically Jacksonville City Schools has not given students the opportunities that they need to be successful.
I absolutely loved attending JHS and was so sad to leave the school. I moved around a lot, but when I got to Jacksonville I knew this was where I belonged. The people made me feel like I went there all my life and I found lifelong friends there. The staff feels like a family to each and every student and I will always remember my time there.
