I came to Joppatowne during the second quarter of my sophomore year. The people were nice for the most part, and the teachers really cared about your education. The only thing I would love to change would be more school involvement. Fun events to get everyone to show school spirit!

Overall Joppatowne was an okay experience as a student. from 10-12th grade, I've found some excellent people and surrounded myself with them, stuck by them and they've made the school experience great. The school itself is subpar at best.
Teachers range from amazing to god awful, the culture also isn't that good but the clubs are fun, our sports are great and the school spirit for that is good however, the overall spirit and culture of joppatowne is low. Not that much parent involvement. PTA support seems quite low this year as well as the resources our school receives due to it not being an inner-city school. Inner-city schools in Baltimore get way more funding, unfortunately.
Wouldnt change my high school experience for anything else though.
Joppatowne high school is a place where everybody knows everybody. I wouldn't equate to a place of acceptance but rather that nobody cares. It's a place where there is virtually no bullying, but in place of it there is teasing and playfulness, I wouldn't call it bullying. However, there is a huge disconnect with school spirit, nobody has it. Everyone's belief their skills and abilities especially in sports is dead. No one ever wants to give it their all, because it's believed to not be worth it, just to lose. Their is also no funding/emphasis on more academically competitive teams such as academic/quiz bowl and speech and debate which is truthfully sad. I believe there is a lot of capability in the students of Joppatowne, but nobody wants to give them the time of day including themselves. It's really sad honestly.
