Jim Thorpe Area School District is a fantastic school. We have a wide variety of clubs, sports, and academics. The teachers are amazing and I have loved almost every one of them. There really is nothing I would like to see change, aside from a larger variety of food options. Other than that Jim Thorpe is an amazing school and one of the best in the area. Jim Thorpe recently began block scheduling twice a week which I believe is a great way to get us ready for college, and take a step into the real world. If I had to choose where to go school all over again, I would pick Jim Thorpe!

Jim Thorpe High School was a good place to learn. Most of my teachers taught amazingly and helped me become a better student. They helped me to engage in class and actually learn the material given to me. Their one to one initiative is pretty great. Each student is provided with a laptop which makes learning in class a lot easier.
One thing I want to address is that JTHS is very big on football and it sometimes can seem that's what they care about the most. Don't take that in the way of they don't care for their students because they do. If you're into sports, this is a good school for you. There also isn't a lot of clubs at JTHS and I wish their were more. I felt there wasn't enough variety of clubs.
Jim Thorpe Area is very unique educational institution. The staff works to their greatest ability to insure that students are succeeding and they treat all students fairly. With the variety of extracurricular activities at Jim Thorpe, I have never felt that I wouldn't fit in. Throughout my years at Jim Thorpe the teachers have also made it their job to motivate students and give them incentives for their hard work acedemically. I am currently in my senior year at Jim Thorpe are High school and because of the endless support, I feel prepared and ready to take on college. Jim Thorpe Area School District has made my elementary and high school experience very memorable.
