Jacksonville School District really isn't that bad. The teachers do their best to teach you to your highest ability. And while there are many opportunities to join an athletic team that doesn't mean they are actually good when it comes to completing and some teams receive favoritism over other sports, but other than that it is a great place to send your children.

I liked the academics at JHS, as well as the diversity. The clubs and activities kept us busy as students and involved in our community functions, making it not so noticeable that it was school work.
Being a student heading to college for American Sign Language, I will say that I wish the administration would listen more to the students when it comes to issues with the teachers on staff. I understand that not all complaints are valid, but there were multiple students in my 4 years of ASL that multiple students had issues with the only teacher we had for ASL. It made it quite a struggle to want to stay in that specific class, however my love for ASL prevailed and I made it onto college to pursue my dreams. I just worry about other students who may not stick it out with out the administrative support they need.
My experience in the school system has been an overall positive one. The atmosphere is what to expect at school and there are no "out to get you" teachers. There are teachers that are more motivated to get you to where you want to go after high school than others but none of them are negative. With renovations happening to the schools throughout the district, hopefully the learning environment will improve along with the conditions of the schools. The faculty try to help you through everything that comes your way at the schools and help make the school environments better for everyone.
