Jersey City School District Reviews
My school, Liberty High School is very diverse. The teachers want you to be involved and even though there aren't sports, we have clubs that can even give you scholarship opportunities. The teachers are really good, and they know how to teach in an interesting way where students will understand/ want to listen. Especially the AP classes they provide, personally I am in AP US History and my teacher is pushing us to study, work, and debate. He slowly helps us adapt to the Exam we will be taking.
Diversity is one of the good things that make Jersey City Public Schools very unique. The diverse students make the social experiences in school more interesting as other students are able to communicate with different races. The purpose of education is to educate students both academically and personally. I believe that most public schools motivate students to achieve their goals and prepare them for college. However, frustration comes to poor administration. Food and facilities are not acceptable since the funding should be put on those things. In addition, it's very frustrating how teachers don't get enough benefits and salary for something that they work hard for.
Jersey City Public schools certainly need a lot of change, especially the Board of Education. They need to increase funding for the academically successful schools in Jersey City, more specifically Dr. Ronald E. McNair Academic High School, instead of funding all of the other less academic public schools. This specific high school needs the most funding, for diverse courses and school supplies and facilities, especially because it's the number one school in the state of NJ.
