Jay County High School Reviews
There are a ton of clubs and sports that you can join. We have dual credit classes, with which you can graduate high school, going into college with an associate's degree already. We have a bunch of classes that gear toward your diploma (obviously) plus a bunch of college credit classes, which is awesome! The teachers try their best to educate us according to the standards. There are a lot of students that complain about the school, but in my eyes, there are a lot worse schools. We have opportunities that other high schools don't. Some teachers don't just consider us students, a lot of them consider us more than that, like their own children. I'd say Jay County High School is pretty awesome.
Jay County High School is an okay school. There are a lot of classes that you can take for college credit, but the teachers don´t really help you understand the subject. I feel that people here care more about sports than they do academics. I would like to see more people care about academics rather than sports. The food here is awful and sometimes it´s not even cooked all the way. Parents aren´t that involved in anything that happens here. I would like to see parents be more involved and that the food goes back to the way it was when I was a freshman,
I believe that Jay County does strive to do what is best to help their students get to where they want to be. They offer many vocational classes, if that is the path you want to travel, but they also offer enough college classes to allow you to graduate with an Associate's Degree. There have been some major disciplinary issue as of late, but they are working hard to correct this. Jay County is a fine school to attend.
