Unlike many other students/people that like to bad mouth Jones High School, I love JHS and will always be a tiger at heart! It is not a horrible school like some say. I just like it period. The teachers and staff are cool and mostly the kids are too. I feel very comfortable being there and am upset at the fact that my mother switched me to a stupid charter school! It don't matter though because I will always show my tiger pride

Though we may be a small school jones is definitely the place to be. From our amazing athletes to our excellence within the community jones is overall a great school. This school has provided me with the opportunity to be involved in many things such as the dual enrollment program and beta club which has helped me earn my community service hours. Many paint our school and students out to be ghetto, uneducated, and not determined but I can honestly say jones students are far from that. There's many students there, like myself who want to be more than a stereotype who wants to be break the picture they paint us out to be. Overall my experience with jones has be Great and I am proud to say that I am a jones highschool tiger!!!
My experience at Jones High School was amazing. The teachers were very helpful and content on teaching their students. The administration made sure that everyone was on task with their education and didn't put anyone down when they were struggling.
Everyone knew each other and had self-respect for one another. The students made sure that their peers were succeeding and encouraged them when they weren't.
Jones High School programs are set to help and educate the students further in their academics and provide information for what career they choose for their future. They help their students in choosing their colleges and universities. Help students reach their goal in order to attend that college and helps the students celebrate their achievements and accomplishments.
My love for Jones will forever be with me rather im attending or not because I know that they are a strong school who puts their students education first no matter what.
