Most teachers are there to help. They will try there best to help students understand the subject and work with them one on one until they do. However, the school district itself needs some updates. They continue to go earlier and earlier into the summer yet they still do not have any air conditioning. The building is also very old and small. If they want Jenison to continue bringing in more students then they need to expand. Or at least build a new building since their current one is old and even leaking in some spots when there is rain.

At Jenison, we consider ourselves a fine arts school. We have a brand new fine arts center with one of the best music programs in the state/country. Also, depending on the sport, we have a good program. However, what most people come to Jenison for is academics. We offer over 40 AP classes, and we are known for our challenging curriculum. If Jenison could fix one issue it would be diversity. We do have a ton of exchange students from around the world, however, our student body is majority white.
My overall experience in jenison public schools has been positive. I have attended school in the district since Kindergarten. My experience has been wonderful despite a teacher or two! The staff is very supportive, and is always pushing for success. However our school lacks facilities for our extra curricular activities. While there is always a gym space available to the schools typical sports teams, (ie. Basketball,baseball,football) there are rarely appropriate rehearsal locations for other sports. One example of this is displayed through our color/winter guard teams. This team is stuck in the band room 9/10 of the time. While our school is blessed with this space, it is not designed for what is being asked. The team can barely toss, and are packed in tight, making rehearsal productivity minimal.
