Attending Jacksonville High School was formative, eventful, and a time for great growth. The administration is absolutely centered around making things as good for the kids' learning opportunities as possible. The teachers were some of the most influential adults in my young adult life, and they were all extremely committed to preparing us to work for success. There was a great deal of school spirit, and the events were fun and spirited. The resources were only average when I was there, as it is not an affluent campus - 82% of our school district is economically disadvantaged - but after a recent bond passed, the school is now building new buildings and renovating classrooms. It is really a great place to spend four of the most formative years of your life.

Jacksonville high school is unique because it's strictly based from tradition! My favorite experiences were being a dance team officer and performing under the Friday night lights.
My experience at Jacksonville High School has been outstanding. During my freshman, sophomore, and junior I was a member of FFA. FFA was like a second family to me. The ag teachers encouraged all students to engage in FFA and join CDE and LDE teams.My junior and senior year I have also been a member of the national honor society which has taught me many ways to give back to my community. I am now in a pharmacy technician class and a member of HOSA. These classes and groups have taught me that their is more to school than just regular classes. These classes prepare you for your future careers and teach you many skills along the way. I would do it all over again if I had the chance just to be even more involved.
