High-caliber high school in west Michigan. Provides great classes and electives, and has truly amazing arts, music, and theater programs! I spent my middle school and Freshman years at a different district, and I sincerely wish I had been at Jenison sooner.

Jenison takes academics very seriously and the music/theatre program is astonishing! However, the way the administration handles student issues is not very effective or beneficial to the school. They are very on and off about how seriously they take our dress code and hardly believe that we can take care of ourselves as growing adults. Misbehaving students constantly get away with their antics, and students who make one small accident/misunderstanding get harsh consequences despite the fact that they did nothing wrong. But other than that, they keep us occupied with clubs and activities, which makes the whole experience more lighthearted.
Jenison High School is a typical small-town school where everybody knows everybody. I have found that I connect with almost all of the teachers. Most of the teachers have been teaching at Jenison for decades, so they have all the skills and tips you need to be successful. Jenison has a very high graduation rate and teachers are dedicated to seeing their students succeed. The counselors are extremely helpful and will answer any question you have. My four years at JHS have been memorable and it will be bittersweet to walk the halls for the last time in May.
