Joplin Schools School District Reviews

I have been in the Joplin Schools since Kindergarten. All of the memories of my friends that I have gone to school with for 12 years and still some of my best friends. The Administration and the Teachers always put the students first and that makes me feel special. Being a "SURVIVOR" of the Joplin Tornado, brought our community closer together, starting with all the students in the district. They all put the students needs first and still do so. That is why I am graduating at the top of my class have completed all the AP/DC classes that they offer and have been involved in numerous academic clubs, class president, FB homecoming queen, started on the Varsity Volleyball team and JHS Class President for 4 years! With the support from my Joplin School community, I would not be where I am today. Also, a shout out to my Parents for always supporting me in all my activities!

Joplin High School is a very pretty school. What I like most about it is the laptops that are provided for the students. This gives us an advantage into the technological world that is waiting for us outside of high school. I do feel, though, that the class curriculum is lacking. I didn't feel like I was very well prepared for the ACT or college prep like other schools around me. I had to study a lot outside of school for the ACT to catch up on the information deficit that was missing and wasn't instilled in me very well. I do realize that this is a public school, but I wish the education would have been a little better.
For the most part, I have had a pleasant experience with the Joplin school district. I have had wonderful teachers who I feel very comfortable talking to and asking questions to, for the most part anyways. The newer facilities, such as the high school, a middle school, and a few elementary schools are very nice and large. Of course, there are older facilities but they are not so bad.
