Overall good school with some very good, caring teachers who bend over backwards to help students but a few others who don't know their subjects well and aren't attentive enough to notice kids cheating. Great TSA and Beta clubs, internship opportunities, art classes, AP classes. Take honors courses if you want to learn anything!

I have been a student in the Jasper County school system from Pre-K to now & have enjoyed my time. The last 4 years of schooling here at Jasper County High School have been great. The teacher really do care & are supportive in helping you to succeed. Even with me preparing for college the counselor' s office have assisted with us visiting various colleges, filing out applications, posting different scholarship opportunities & arranging sessions to transition & what to look for or prepare for college. Even with the letters of recommendation the teachers were so helpful. I am proud to say I will be a graduate from Jasper County High School home of the Monticello Hurricanes.
I enjoyed the simplicity of the school overall. However, the majority of the staff and faculty, with a few exceptions, were, for lack of a better word, mediocre. I had no assistance preparing me for college, my desired career path, or what was ahead of me. Being the first in my family to attend college, I had to basically “wing it”, and have unfortunately struggled quite a bit. However, I am still persevering. I can say that while I had difficulty, based on what I have seen via my younger cousin, who is a senior at Jasper County High School (class of 2018), the school has made a few significant improvements as far as college readiness and assisting students who do desire to attend college. I can also commend the school regarding their CNA program. My only advice and/or hope for JCHS is to make further improvements regarding the faculty, as well as their methods of teaching, or lack thereof.
