The teachers tend to be nice. They work with the students to ensure that they are understanding the material. If there are any questions, they always help the students. They are constantly working to make school more interactive and engaging for the students and work to help meet the requirements of their students.

I love that the students and teachers can build a strong relationship and they do so many important things in our lives and we learn various life experiences through them. In our school everyone is very close with one another. Especially at homecoming all the classes come together to make it one big fun event. The memories I have made there will never be forgotten because the best moments in my life have happened in my small high school. One thing I do not like is that not all the students there appreciate what we have there in the small community that we live in. People complain a lot about Jennings County having drugs and being a bad place to grow up and go to school but in the future everyone will realize how much Jennings County High School has really improved our lives.
Jennings County High School has so much to offer. With a wide range of dual credit classes and amazing counselors, students have the opportunity to be as prepared for college as possible. Students can easily get involved with school activities and parents can as well. The teachers are amazing and go above and beyond for their students. I couldn't have picked a better high school.
