I think Jasper City Schools overall offers a good education. Although it is not perfect, I think it has some of the best schools in the state. I attend Jasper High school right now. I've had a wonderful experience so far, but I do have some criticisms to offer. Firstly, I think the lunches should be improved, as they are very poor in quality. Often times the portions are too small, or the food simply does not seem edible. I've found out of date products for sale. Sauce packets are often found empty. Another thing I feel should be improved is how we are prepared for college and life beyond college. I simply don't feel ready, like no one has really spoken to me about these things. Moving on, I feel the school is secure. However, as it has been relevant lately, I think we should work on gun safety. I would like to raise funds for things like metal detectors.

My overall experience with the Jasper City School system has been amazing for many reasons. It has been great on our safeness at school. Every since these school shootings, they been keeping a close watch out for us and making sure that the same don't happen to us. They have codes for us in case there is a shooter, a bomb, ect. We get to have our fun week which include Homecoming/Senior day. They helped me with whatever problems I had and helped me fix them. I love my school system and will not change anything.
The Jasper City School system is great in many ways. For one, it is a very diverse environment at every level of school and there is very little racial tension present. Everyone just seems to be accepting and gets along. Another impressive factor of the school system is the encouragement to participate in extra-curricular activities. Dr. Ann Jackson runs one of the best school systems in the state. She is committed to providing a safe learning environment that prepares students for the next chapter of their life. I like how JCS provide an experience that is second to none and puts all students in the best situation to reach their own unique potential.
