I liked the fact that being there is not just like a regular highschool, you create bonds. You create bonds with teachers, staff and other student too. Honestly the atmosphere is that of a family or community that is close together. Even though we have gone through hardships, we have overcame them and we have learned from them. Jones Futures Academy I can say has helped the student grow into LEADERS!

You will get to know you teacher personally, and they will you. College readiness is very good because I take courses from HCC, and getting ready for college is easy. The change they should make is the after school activities because nobody wants to stay more hours after school. It should by putting activities during school hours. But in all, Jones made me a big change in character, getting to know everyone in that school was much easier because of how ongoing everyone is.
Jones Futures Academy have teach me varity of things. I have experienced nice moments in that campus. That school have so many opportunities for us, especially for immigrants. They get us ready to be successful in life!
