Jacksonville High School Reviews
I have basically grown up with this high school. JHS staff is very friendly and helpful, and teachers try to have a personal relationship with students. The International Baccalaureate program gives students the opportunity to become internationally competitive. Students also have the opportunity to take Career and Technical Education classes where they can become better prepared for their future career. Students can also take creative and performing arts classes that allow them to express themselves while receiving class credits. Multiple JHS sports have made it to states this past year and hopefully they will be able to go all the way this year! My biggest wish is for the facilities to be updated. Some of the buildings have been there since the school was built and haven’t been updated since. Other than that, Jacksonville High School is a wonderful school that prepares students for their future.
It's a rather average school with some facilities being a bit lacking in either funds or expertise. Despite this, the school makes its best effort to make up for the lack of funds that public schools are treated to in most cases, and will attempt to give opportunities to students who work hard enough and show the desire to go beyond expectations or to students who need a bit more direction. The staff is friendly and courteous, many students even tend to have a faculty member that they can rely on should personal issues come up that they can't discuss with other adults for a variety of reasons. Overall it's a rather run-of-the-mill school that wasn't spectacular to me in any way, but it certainly isn't a school that one should avoid or try not to go to.
Jacksonville High school is a school where the students are of least priorities. The opportunities given to students are very biased and lack diversity. The school has low maintenance, and has poor structural issues. Overall teachers are passionate, and general care for students.
