Jonesboro School District has strict guidelines for children and make sure that they stay within them. They teach them how to respect people from preschool all the way until high school. They offer your children wide areas of learning from arts, music, theater, shop classes and most of these classes start from 1st grade on up until high school. Jonesboro High School Marching band is the best band! They have won many trophies and are very dedicated to their craft. Come try us and see.

My experience at The Academies At Jonesboro High school have been life changing. In my junior high years I was unmotivated, I felt my teachers didn't care. So why should I? However, when I got to The Academies At Jonesboro High School a fire was lit inside of me. I finally had teachers that were invested in me, and wanted the best for me. This year my core teachers have been amazing. The most devoted teacher I have is my algebra 2 teacher. She has high expectations for all her students, but she also understands each persons weaknesses and teaches us to embrace them, and not let them hold us back. Another thing The academies At Jonesboro High School excels in is planning ahead. Jonesboro has amazing student teachers, that will one day make great teachers. The whole environment at Jonesboro High School is outstanding. Every student is given an area that they can succeed in. I believe in the next 10 years Jonesboro High School will be nationally known for it's success.
My experience with the Jonesboro School District has been the most incredible experience since I began my long road of education to become an Registered Nurse. Hands down best faculty of any college I have attended. The attention to detail, excellence, and a personal touch of warmth and kindness that each faculty member I have come in to contact while attending Arkansas State University-Jonesboro possesses has impacted and inspired me to want to be a nurse educator when I graduate. Well done A-STATE University! GO REDWOLVES!!!!!!
