Jericho is very competitive, which stresses students out, but it pushes students at the same time. Teachers vary from very influential to really uninformative. Almost all of the students go on to pursue a college career after high school!

Jericho High school is certainly not like any other schools. I came to JHS as a freshman from a completely different state and the objectives of kids here COMPLETELY different. Most people in my old school perused a less competitive lifestyle while still caring about their educations. Most kids here are extremely competitive and are what you call "try hards"(mostly Asian), sometimes excluding their social life and athletics just to go to tutors and study non stop on the weekends. High school shouldn't just be a full on blow of studying non-stop; however with the state of Jericho and its competitiveness, it is hard to change that.
The experience at Jericho is mostly shaped by who you are and what social group you choose to belong to. For the academically-inclined (mostly Asian), taking all the AP's possible, getting 4.0 GPA's, and winning science research awards are the main goals. For everybody else, keeping up with these kids while maintaining a social life is the objective. There is a lot of fear of peer competition and college affirmative action, so the former group is a formidable academic powerhouse that only gets stronger every year, which causes a lot of stress among students but improves Jericho's state and national rankings.
