Nice teachers. Strong selection of classes for both advanced and beginner students. Lots of resources to help students prosper. The schools value the arts as well as the basic tracks. Certain elementary schools in different areas of town are more diverse and students are more underprivileged. The teachers care about the success of their students and help them succeed. Many teachers offer outside of school assistance. A large selection of clubs and activities are offered at the high schools.
So many are quick to express the problems that are involved with public schools, however, with the Janesville School District I believe that it is important to speak on the positives. I, a member of the Janesville School district for 13 years, there was never a time when felt lost or alone. All of the teachers were willing to go out of their way to help and lend a hand. They were responsive and reliable, they had the ability to notice when the students were having an off day and were capable of cheering them up. They supported all students. Overall, I had a great experience with the Janesville School District. They prepared me for college and life beyond.
