Jackson Hole High School (JHHS) is an amazing public school, academically. There are a variety of AP courses offered, including AP Psychology and AP Environmental Sciences, a lot of great electives like forensics and bioengineering, and plenty of clubs ranging from robotics to astronomy. The teachers are great, and with the small size of the school, it is easy to bond with teachers.
However, JHHS has one large flaw. It resides in a party town. If you attend JHHS, there is a very good chance you will partake in some form of underage drinking/drug usage. The amount of money in the town results in a large amount of easily obtained alcohol/drugs. The students won't admit it, but the majority of them have partook in some form of substance abuse in their high school years.
To be fair, JHHS does address these issues. Unfortunately, they have yet to come up with any real solutions.

The High School has very dedicated teachers who always support the students learning. The academics are very diverse and offers students many options. There’s variety in challenging courses. The school however does lack diversity in sports, classrooms, lunch breaks and overall. The classrooms are a very comfortable environment to be in. Education is taken seriously. In my experience students who are struggling will be helped by the teacher no matter what.
I was best prepared for my undergraduate career and life after high school. I was a given more opportunities than ever imagined and access to lots of technology, resources, and more than anyone could dream of. The teachers there cared about your learning and were always there to help you succeed and there to help you if you needed a helping hand through the hardships. They have a great college prep and information regarding colleges and how to apply. Classes that help with taking the ACT are available and free act and AP tests are provided.
