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!!!!!!

My experience at Jonesboro School District was amazing. I received so many wonderful learning opportunities through them, I was able to get involved in several clubs and activities and I was even able to work on my leadership skills and communication skills. While attending the Jonesboro School District, I grew to love my classes, peers and facilitators. Something I loved about Jonesboro school district would be taking AP classes which could help you to challenge yourself, many competitive events, wonderful resources and role models and also having different people to believe in you and help you to succeed. Something I want to see improved is ACT in the classroom, maybe as a study hall or something instead of as a bellringer or weekend thing( in high school). Other than that, I had an amazing experience with this school district.
They have awesome choices for elementary schools that have their own theme. So not only do the teach the children their curriculum, they also get to participate and learn about what ever theme their school is. Examples are health wellness and environmental studies, math and science, visual and performing arts, or micro Society. The middle schools are both great schools. They help the children prepare for high school and help them to start think about what they need to focus on for college. The high school gives the young adults/ teens a great opportunity for studies and even skills for their future. They offer a variety of courses in Tech center to get them started on their dream jobs. They have an awesome athletics program with several state championships under their belt. The Jonesboro public schools give your child a good quality education.
