Jenkintown is a fantastic school! The students create really close relationships with the teachers, and they are always willing to offer extra help with all the rigorous courses at our school. Some may say it is cliquey, but everyone finds their own solid friend group because we have all been together for so long. It is not the most diverse, but that has been improving in recent years. The community is also really involved with the school and we have fun parades/events. People are also ver ypassionate about sports even though we are small. God Rakes!

Jenkintown is a very small school, so clubs and extra curricular activities aren’t as diverse as other schools. However, a small school leads to a lot of parent involvement, especially since everyone knows everyone in town. As well as that aspect, the teachers are very focused on each individual student and hope that each succeeds. The guidance counselors are also very involved in students’ lives, always available to talk or help, and they make appointments with each student to talk about and to plan for college.
Jenkintown has been an amazing experience for me. The teachers here are incredibly involved in the success of each student and I have received an amazing education. Students here are always kind and there truly is a place for everyone at Jenkintown. Almost every student plays at least one sport or is in a club, but many students are involved in numerous activites here. The school pride here is overwhelming and there are many traditions that make Jenkintown so unique. I never felt unsafe or unimportant while I was at Jenkintown where I attended from kindergarten to senior year, because of how tight-knit the community is everyone here feels like one large family.
