Jay School Corporation Reviews

You have a variety of classes to take for dual credit. I would change the bullying. Kids get bullied and flaunt offensive signs but no one, even adults, will step up and make things right. There are racial slurs and homophobic words thrown around the halls. Another thing I would change is how differently girl are treated in the things they get than the boys. School spirit is shown at every boys basketball game. The whole band is required to go and all of the cheerleaders are required to cheer. At the girl's basketball games, the band gets to take shifts on who goes and who doesn't, and the same is with the cheerleaders. The girls locker rooms and molded and rusted all over. The locker room isn't even the school colors. Some lockers won't budge open, the lockers are kicked in and broken by wrestlers. The boys have a nicely, presentable locker room that is new. It's basically everything that the girls don't have, but the school won't on Title 9 saying that everything is to be equal.

Jay School Corporation does not listen to the voice of the student body. This school district is one of the worst places I have attended. I do not recommend putting a child in this type of negative environment. They say they have no tolerance for bullying, but when a student is pleading for help they are usually dismissed. They say they will not tolerate drug and alcohol abuse among their students, but their athletes are the abusers. These students get away with their behavior because of their status as 'winners'.
Jay School Corporation is overall a great corporation. They have prepared me for college and made me a better student. The teachers really care about the students at the schools, and are great motivators. The only thing I would really like to see change, is the food. I have not continuously ate school lunch since my freshman year. I would like to see healthy, colorful choices in the Jay County lunchrooms.
