Jersey Shore Area School District Reviews

It could've been worse, however the food is questionable with the occasional good lunch. Recent cuts to the high school are forcing good teachers out including heavy cuts to the spanish department, completely removing Choir, and cuts to english as well. Some teachers do not care at all of their students, retiring teachers obviously losing effort. The cuts are significant losses to the school entirely and the teachers surviving will not be able to compensate. New board members trying to shut down school, looking for ways to cut budget within the school rather than their undeserving salaries as they ignore concerned parents.

I believe that Jersey Shore Area Senior HIgh School is a great, diverse school district for anyone. It promotes athletics, as well as music and arts. It has several CTE classes that you can join in high school, which makes it easier to get a job right tout of high school. We have a daycare in our school which parents use a lot. We have a cafe as well which caters events for our school district. There are also several woodworking and metal CTE classes. I believe Jersey Shore is Greta school if you have a wide variety of interests.
Throughout my high school career I feel that my experience was very well. I was involved in sports and clubs. Also my academic stability is within the excellent range of A-B. My freshman year they had an hour lunch which was pretty cool, they took it away my sophomore year and we never got it back and it is now my senior year. But I do like having the options to sit outside the cafeteria and eat. My one concern with my school although it did not happen to me personally some of my friends were mocked and teased to the point that they dropped out. I am not pointing fingers on who the blame was but I know that my friends went to the teachers and nothing happened. But bullying is not as bad in our school like the other schools near us.
