Jacksonville High School Reviews

What I love most about Jacksonville High School is that majority of the teachers are extremely supportive and allow you to express yourself. Not only are they there to educate you but they are also there to give advice and life lessons whenever you need it. Many students, including myself, have relied on our teahchers, faculty, and staff to be a support system and to have someone who believes in them and I couldn’t be more proud to say that I have successfully experienced this at Jacksonville High School! A change I would like to see happen is how they do semester exams. I would like Jacksonville High School to consider making semester exams exempt to students who have an 85 or higher average in the course that they are taking because it is not fair to the students who are passing the class to still have to take the exam.

As a graduating senior of Jacksonville High School, I can attest to the high standards and expectations of this high school. The teachers are wonderful and the administration really cares about the families within the school district. As for changes, I would like to see the high school continue to step up its academics program and outlet for extracurricular activity.
My high school experience was really good. I was given the opportunity to take higher level classes and even college courses. I took my first college class in 11th grade! The school offers AP courses to students so they can excel in their future. The teacher are very willing to work with students and to help them if they are struggling.
