Overall, my experience with Jacob’s Fork was grand. It prepared me for high school as much as it could due to its wonderful and educated teachers. However, like all schools, the safety factor could have been better with perhaps more involvement with law enforcements. But of course this would be prevented and hindered by finances. Though overall, middle school was more “ordered” than high school, as in, their was more order when it came to fights and other conflict. That was probably due to us not having as much freedom in middle school than high school. But with freedom comes responsibility.
