Jacksonville Independent School District Reviews

Jacksonville, like any other district, has their own way of running things. With that being said, that wasn't a very efficient way to decide how things were to be done. The district needs to consider the voices of those who are getting their education from them instead of relying on their own impulse and opinions.

While I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the JISD schools I attended, I had concerns about the work ethics of teachers and how a few didn't care for a student's education or their safety.
The facilities at he high school are either dirt terrible or brand new. It'd be nice to see an overall good appearance on our campus. Our college readiness is crap; the counselors discourage students to take AP classes.
