Jenkintown Middle/High School Reviews

Jenkintown high school is criminally underrated in the Niche rankings. Because of the small size, the educational environment superior to that of many high schools ranked higher on this list. My friends from neighboring, high ranking schools wish they had what we did. Classes are small, so teachers can engage students individually. Where Jenkintown truly shines though is in its holistic regard of its students. Most rich suburban high schools like Jenkintown only care about their top students and leaves the bottom to the birds. However, at Jenkintown, everyone is treated well. Everyone is expected to give high effort and it is known that strengths vary. Because of this, kids never skip school and the environment in standard level courses are the same educationally conductive ones found in AP classes.
Review Jenkintown Middle/High School
The sports and fitness at Jenkintown High School is awesome. All of our teams have all the equipment necessary, new uniforms, and caring coaches. The Field Hockey, Baseball, Basketball teams,cross country, and Lacrosse team always do amazing for such a small school. The athletes are amazing from here!
Sports at Jenkintown are great because (usually) anyone can join--unless there's an excess of players, there are no tryouts. Our cross country and lacrosse teams are pretty good, as is our girls basketball, which made it to states the past two years. The football and field hockey field are not the greatest. The staff seems to take more care of the football field when the football team is using it and not when the lacrosse team is using it, though the lacrosse team is more successful.
