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.

Our school system has so much to offer - great learning environment, strong academics, and awesome school spirit. There are so many opportunities available for students ranging from clubs, sports, band/orchestra and theater!
The school had a well rounded education. The classes stretched one's thinking. The teachers were there to help almost whenever you needed them. They would come in early, help during their lunch breaks, and even stay after school hours. However, the students themselves did not get along very well. You could see all the cracks and groups and those who were left out. I'd also say there lunch rules and hallway usage rules were a little too strict given the location. You couldn't walk past a certain point. You were contained during lunch.
