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.

I have attended Jay High School from 7-12 grade and have enjoyed my experience. The small school size allows for a much more personal experience than at a larger school. The teachers are great, however, some departments are stronger than other.
Jay High School is a very small school with about 500 7th grade-12th! Our community is very dedicated to providing supplies and money, to ensure we are successful in the classroom and in athletics!! Jay is not very big, but that opens up many opportunities for students to succeed in academics, clubs, and athletics!
