Jacksonville High School Reviews

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.
Jacksonville High School is certainly on the lower end of schools, they are extremely poor, under staffed, and have almost no resources except for chromebooks. I have met a hand full of respesctable staff members, but most of the student body seem like they don't have a care in the world about themselves or others. There has also been waves of changes to the school but most are having a backslash and are not being addressed because of this the few respectable staff members are starting to leave in droves.

This highschool may be bad but when asked of to other students they mention that others schools however have a bullying problem which at least this high school does not have. So there's that.
