Jeannette Senior High School Reviews
The Jeannette School District is extremely small. When I graduated in 2013 I was one of 76 students graduating. We often had old textbooks in many of our classes. It was not the worst school to go to despite what many people would say. When I was in high school I believe that the teachers actually tried to give me the most they possibly could. The teachers still have influence on me today as I try to replicated them by become a teacher myself. While they are small, they make do with what they have and provide as much of an education as their limitations allow.
There are not very many options for clubs and sports. There is no volleyball team, boys tennis, etc. There used to be many more clubs when I first entered the high school but the numbers have diminished and so has the funding so there are less. You only matter if you play sports. Football and basketball players get treated like they are gods by admin. It's frustrating. Also the school dress code is pretty sexist and doesn't go exactly by the rules. Some people get in trouble for wearing a certain color while others don't. You also were not allowed to wear jackets or hoodies which made zero sense. On dress down days people would be punished for very minor things. When it comes to education there are ZERO AP classes which is so frustrating for someone who wants to be challenged but physically can't. They probably don't have the numbers for those who want to take AP classes so they don't offer them. Also the teachers were mostly good for the resources they had but I could have been better prepared for my future.
I feel the teachers do the best of their abilities with what they're given. They help as much as possible but there is definitely a teaching shortage. There were only 2 English teachers in the whole school when I graduated. It's absurd that they make teachers teach 6 different types of classes, which means they have to have different lessons plans for each type of class and can't focus on one or two classes and make those classes very engaging. I feel the teachers care a lot about the students, minus a few. The art teacher is always the sweetest and I have learned so much from her, along with the English department. The 2 history teachers I had were pitiful. They taught straight from the book, so there was need to even take notes. Most of the classes are easy A's minus English and some math and sciences. The new teachers also end up leaving because they know how corrupt the place is. But I will say it's not the teachers fault, it's definitely the administration.
