My experience was very good I loved going to school there! I was involved in the band and winter drum line programs and seeing how the school supported us was amazing. One thing I would change about Jay School Corporation was the popularity status that was present there, many times people that played basketball,baseball,football were held to a higher standard then others. I wouldn’t change anything else about Jay School it’s. Pretty amazing school

My four years at Jay County have been amazing. The teachers are great and they have really helped me grow into the person I am today. They teachers really care about their students and how to help better them. At Jay County I've has so many opportunities to take college classes and use the internet to my advantage. I would 100% recommend Jay County. Not only are we great at academics, we have some really good teams, such as wrestling and swimming. Although some of our teams are not very good, the student section always shows out and supports the amazing team. It feels amazing just to be part of it. Something I love that Jay County does is bring in exchange students. During junior and senior year I have been able to make friends from like 10 different countries. It has been an amazing experience. I love my school.
Jay School Corporation is a very well structured Corporation. I am a senior and I have went to Jay School Corporation since Kindergarten and I feel like I have gotten a very quality education. I have close relations with my teacher as well as the other students. I have gotten the opportunity to take many college dual credit classes. which I feel as gotten me pretty prepared for my year coming up attending college. I am very proud to be a Patriot!
