My experience at Jersey Shore Area Senior High School was very much average. There are some phenomenal teachers at this school some decent opportunities. However, there are many sections that could be improved like college readiness and updates and more effort put into the arts and music programs. As well, there is a lot of effort put on specific "future pathways" and little put in other areas, specifically the natural science realm. There is lots of good to come from this school, but there is a need for a progressive improvement as well, which should be attainable with the everchanging world.

Jersey Shore Area Senior High School is an excellent school that makes sure all the student’s needs are met. There is a warm atmosphere about the school that allows kids to feel comfortable in their surroundings. Every student is respected and their needs are very important to the staff. There are many opportunities for kids to try new things such as joining clubs or taking pathway classes. The school is also very involved and supportive of the sports. Each sport is recognized and awarded for their accomplishments. Not only are the sports recognized at Jersey Shore Senior High School, but the students who put time and effort into their work. Each Month two students are recognized for their academic abilities and their awards they have received. Jersey Shore is a very welcoming school with teens who are growing up to be the future of America.
I liked the inclusiveness of the classes they offer. There's at least one class for everyone going into the different fields. However, the lack of health teaching could be improved in my opinion. Instead of making first aid an elective, I believe it should be required in the health class students have to take as juniors. More safe sex education is also a good idea, teach us how to stay safe when we're young adults out with friends or just with our significant others instead of telling us to stay away from it and only talk about STDs and STIs.
