Coming into High school I was afraid, but with the administration staff it helped a lot with that. I faced a lot of difficulties through my years but my teachers, peers, and my principals gave me words of encouragement and helped me to get through those obstacles. The school as a whole is a great environment and have great resources. It's a awesome place to learn, all the teachers know exactly how to help. They make sure they give one on one help. the teachers aren't only here to teach but they're a good support system to all of us as a whole. they your years enjoyable and fun and make sure that through your learning experience not only that you have room to grow but also to make sure you have fun. I'll recommend going to Jennings High school any day.

My overall experience at Jennings High School was differently a rollercoaster. Which is expected because transitioning from middle school is a big step. You're work ethic throughout high school gives you a glimpse of what your work ethic outside of school will be like. Jennings High School has definitely prepared me for college and life. I've learned many skills I will be able to use and keep for the rest of my life. We have had our moments and things weren't so great. But one thing I can say is we persevered through any issues that have occurred.
This school has given me academic and physical support while there. The superintendent is very caring and makes sure he is there to support all the children from elementary to high school. The high school prepared us to enter college. There were many programs to do so.
