I greatly enjoyed how involved the community was with everything that went on at the high school. I was a part of many different organizations at Jacksonville High School- Band, tennis, and theater- and love the experiences these programs were able to give me. I do wish that the theater program was better funded and that the bathrooms in the main hall could be updated to be more modern.

Jacksonville ISD is a very friendly, non-biased, and an extremely helpful and healthy learning environment for any and everyone. They welcome everyone whether you’re from Jacksonville or not. The teachers and staff care about their students education and well being. There is great involvement and opportunities for everyone. The only change I would like to see are more programs and extracurricular activity options.
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.
