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.
Jenison had a good overall experience. I loved the school and the people who went there, but I think they were too strict on dress code while they should be more focused on the kids themselves. Clothing is a choice on how one wants to express themselves. One of my teachers at Jenison told our class how the school is catered to the males. If a girl showing her shoulders in a classroom distracts them that bad, they deserve to get bad grades.
