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.
This school is amazing. The people you hang out with really defines your future for the school. So make sure you're with the right people, if not well expect a different outcome.
I have enjoyed my time in Jasper, I am an athlete, and very involved with my school. I don't really know how other high schools are but i'm sure Jasper High School is a very special school. We are very diverse which I enjoy since some schools around here are not. I am doing NHS, Student council, soccer, cross country, and cheer so i was a most events when something was happening. I think at Jasper High School we are just one big family because everyone knows everyone since it's a small town as well as a small school. Our principle knows a lot of students by name and he smiles all the time, he has such an amazing school spirit. He even asked one of my cheerleader teammates to make him some pants that saying principle and bulldog pride. I'm very sad to be leaving my bulldogs but my time is up at this school.
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.
Some of the teachers where really good as far as giving one on one to use students and what I think needs to be changed is the bullies and how some teachers teach they need more teaching them self
Jasper is a good school to go to. There have some great teachers that are willing to help the students and become more like family. They are always there to support us in our academics and other activities. There are a lot of extracurricular sports, clubs, and activities to be part of and the support from the staff is amazing. I do wish they would feed us better tasting, healthier food. The meals could do with an upgrade and the teachers could use a few more resources, but the district is working to make it better. Also, I wish more parents would get involved. Though we have so many that are, there are also many students that would perform better if the parents would be there to help out sometimes. Overall, we have a really great district that is focused on helping the students to succeed.
Jasper ISD is a great school district. JASPER ISD has great teachers and great administrator. The athletic department is great.
I think teachers go out their way to make sure you pass. It is up to the parents to get involved and make sure they show up at the school for conferences. If teachers know you're not there, they will not help as much. I want to be all that I can be.
I liked my teachers because they always provided a good learning experience. I didn't enjoy the administration because they made big deals out of nothing but when it came to real situations that needed to be dealt with they were awful. On bad weather days the former super intendant would take forever before cancelling school, and for some students it would be nearly impossible to get out of their yards if they lived near the river when flooding occurred.
