My high school experience has been amazing! Jay offered me so many amazing opportunities. I was able to be a part of a variety of clubs, and was given the opportunity to play every sport I had hoped to. Jay is a very open-minded school and they take into consideration every idea they are given. For example, my dad started the first tennis team Jay has ever had when i was in the fifth grade, and because of this, I was able to participate in the sport that has shaped me throughout the years.

My experience at Jay High School was great! I was involved in many extracurricular activities and did some dual enrollment classes at night as well as regular classes throughout the day. Jay has many different sports and clubs to choose from to get involved with your peers. They also give you opportunity to receive college credit through dual enrollment and the AICE program. There is not much racial diversity, but it is a very small school in a remote town so I would not expect it to have a lot of diversity. The only thing I would change is the food, due to the fact it just is not very appetizing.
Since Jay High School contains roughly 400 hundred students from 7-12 grade, it is easy to learn and have a closer relationship with teachers. I look forward to going to school each morning. The faculty is very focused on my success in the future.
