I have enjoyed my years of education at Jacksonville High School. At this school, I have formed many great friendships, learned more in the classes I take, and obtained skills that I can take into my future. Something I would change about my school is the fact that administrators should speak more widely on teenage mental illnesses. Many students have anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses. If we had breaks from class to just relax and have a conversation about how mental illnesses can affect teenagers, I think this could help us scholars clear our minds and prepare us more for class.

I want there for all four years of my high schooling experience. The teachers were friendly and helpful. I learned a great deal. However, the school is just so old that it lacks that feel you get from newer and cleaner schools. Sports and extra curriculum activties were plentiful. The food was mediocre, I never was excited about breakfast or lunch. I hear that the principle there has things really strict now. No talking to friends between classes anymore. This makes students very disconnected, depressed and anti-social, bad call! Wasn't crazy about being a student there at all. It was just super local for me. But again, the teachers really do make a difference. I miss and love so many of mine from my prior attendance.
Jacksonville High School is both new and old. I say this because the city of Jacksonville, AR has made its own school district as Jacksonville North Pulaski School District. Having our own district, invited students into our high school from 4 different schools. I was able to meet an amazing set of peers which lead to healthy friendships! Although adjusting to a new environment was hard with all the new administration and students, I managed to make the best of it! Our school is growing each day and I can envision an even friendlier, stronger, and well educated environment in the years to come.
