Jones county has a great school system. The teacher are very concerned about the students and our education. Since Elementary schools I have always had great teachers that helped me become the intelligent young lady I am now. Jones county schools tries their best to mold us into young adults and prepare us for college and the real world. They have many pathways and classes that prepare us for our future careers. They might not be the number one school in Georgia, but they are the best school in the area I live in. All my years at jones county have benefited me in one way or another. I am glad that I attend jones county high school for the last 13 years, because I wouldn't probably be who I am now if I went somewhere else.

My overall experience at Jones County has been a good one. The school system is very prejudice and the racism sometimes goes unnoticed. There is room for improvement in all areas such as resources, dress code, and teaching of curriculum. In contrast , Jones County is very diverse and remains involved even outside of school. It does well in getting students involved to make a positive learning environment for all, and encourages students to participate in school related activities such as athletics and clubs. Overall, Jones County is a good school systembut could use improvement.
Jones County High is an awesome school to go to academically. The teachers are always willing to help you when they see the potential in you. The school needs to give out more scholarships. I ran track and only one track Scholarship was giving out. The school needs to put more money in having different types of programs to help kids find their passion in life. Also, when having Banquets, breakfasts, dinners , and etc more effort, time, and money needs to go into it. Over the following years these types of events have been very cheap looking.
