Jericho Senior High School Reviews

Overall, Jericho High School is a good school: great academics, plenty of opportunities, and caring staff. Although, everyone's experience at Jericho varies depending on their own personal goals. There are a lot of high-achieving students, but there are also a lot of average students. Competitiveness ranges from the people you surround yourself with and how you deal with stress. The majority of teachers are supportive and put in a lot of effort in their job. Downsides of this school include lack of school spirit and lack of diversity. I wouldn't describe it as "cliquey" because there isn't a hierarchy, but friend groups are pretty solidly established here, and people tend stay in bubbles.

I will graduate from Jericho High School in 2019. JHS is a very nice place, but it’s extremely competitive. The students are good friends, but they all have a competitive nature somewhere in them. This may make it hard for certain students to do as well as they expect or be proud of themselves. Overall, it has been a great experience. However, I feel that had I been in a school with a lower rating, I would’ve been better off for college. Also, students should only come here while in middle school, not after high school starts.
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!
