Jasper Independent School District Reviews
Jasper High School has been quite the experience. What i love is the school spirit that is among the staff and students. Academically, all core classes have everything necessary, all textbooks provided etc. As well as some very talented teachers who enjoy their job. The school is very diverse in both race, and culture, with plenty of unique personalities floating around here and there from the students and teachers. Jasper High school, as well as the other surrounding school have been undergoing some very needed updates, which i appreciate. There is a new band hall at the junior high, new football and baseball/softball feilds and the school is up to date. The school is growing in size, which brings me to the one thing i think needs to change. The school is a little small for the size of the student body within.
I was new, it was my first year there and I was also an eight grader. Eighth grade is a difficult grade to go into a new school anyway but Jasper made me feel very welcome. The teachers did all they could to help me out, the principals were amazing and they handled situations very well, and the students were great. Even though I was new they really took me in. I would like to see a change in how certain things are addressed. Such as suicide and bullying. There are no posters or assemblies dealing with or pertaining to suicide/bullying. I believe it would impact young students greatly if they were more exposed to the idea that both of those things are real and they happen often.
Although Jasper High School was overall good, I would recommend changing some of the staff members, as well as how they reviewed their staff. We had several staff members who were sports coaches, who also "taught" a subject. Their classes were often known as the blow off classes, due to the staff members not actually giving lessons or classwork. I feel that all classes should be challenging and a learning experience.
