Jacksonville City School system granted me a fantastic education for twelve years. I was able to be involved in numerous sports, clubs, and organizations as a student. Teachers always made me feel comfortable and welcome in the classroom; I was never scared to ask a question or get assistance. As technology became a crucial tool for education, Jacksonville High School presented each student with their own iPad. My senior year, they upgraded and all students were presented a Chromebook to use. We were allowed to take these tools home with us, use them during school, and complete projects that wouldn't have been achievable without this technology. Jacksonville City Schools presented me with the best opportunities a student could ask for.
Jacksonville has been a great place for social activities and getting to know other people in the community! They have a great academic system and science curriculum! Jacksonville is a beautiful and I love going to school here!
