Attending this school for about 3 years has been amazing I've learned many things. This school gives more opportunities than a regular high school. Attending this school gave me the opportunity to be apart of the dental class and being able to become a registered dental assistant. Its amazing how we can receive this registered assistant certificate while we are still in high school and at age around 17 years old. When people who are taking college classes to accomplish this. Its a wonderful experience to attend this school, I really recommended it!

Jack E. Singley Academy, the school of the phoenix's and very well my second home! I came to this school as an uninspired and unmoved personal, nevertheless my experience as the days grew closer to the final year of this prestigious high school, allowed me to realize there is more to this world than meets the eye! This lovely school has awoken me from my comfort zone and prompted me with the confidence to show my unique attributes to the world! I no longer sit back in the class and daydream into space, but rather sit up swiftly at the front ready to answer any question that the teacher provides. My daily life as a result of accompanying this school involves being disputed into clubs such as MSA, NHS, Chess Club, Debate Club, Green Team, Friday Night Tech, and Student Council! All in all, I very well do adore this school and wish to leave this ever changing opportunity for the next generation!
The "specialty" departments at this school really provide a great avenue to students who can start looking towards what they are passionate about early. While I was attending this high school, some changes occurred, such as specialties being taken out of the school program and new ones added in. While this could have been a wise decision, the art programs were disposed of and programs like Home Security and Fire Department were added instead. Overall, the teachers, counselors, and administrators really do love their jobs, care about the difference they make in students' lives, and try their best to teach them well; however, the gimmick of the school, i.e. the specialties, does little to further a student's career prospects because only a few of these specialties offer certificates or experience.
