Joppatowne High School Reviews
Rating 3.6 out of 5 124 reviews
The involvement of the student during and after school is very lack luster. Nothing makes a student want to get up and got to school
My daughter attends Joppatowne High school and she loves it. They have so many clubs and extra curricular activities. The teachers are so international and provide proper guidance to each individual student. My high school experience overall very memorable.
My experience at Joppatowne Highschool was a great experience, I have made a lot of new friends along the way and experienced many lessons. What makes Joppatowne High school stand out is how small and diverse the school is. There are a wide spread of different cultures attending Joppatowne and it makes all of the students connect with each other by showing their differences.
As a recent graduate, I can say I had a great experience at Joppatowne. What I liked most was the family atmosphere and the staff was there to help you whenever you needed help. what I thought should have changed was how lax administration was with some rules and regulations. I hope that it would change soon. Overall, I enjoyed my four years at Joppatowne.
a really great school. teachers love their job and support students throughout their high school career.
i like how the teacher are very nice to you also if you play a sport and your parent didnot pick you up the coaches sit with you
As a new senior attending Joppatowne High I unfortunately do not find the environment to be productive and interactive enough for us students. Many students do not follow guidelines and tend to disrupt the learning environment. In addition, the teachers and administrator do not enforce the guidelines by providing adequate consequences which result in worse behavior from the students. For Joppatowne High School to evolve into its highest potential, the school will need to undergo various altercations. This school needs to go over consequences, when and how they should be enforced to the students who disregard the rules. The school's faculty staff needs to be more attentive when observing the school’s bathrooms and hallways to make it coherent that the environment is thoroughly sanitized. The teachers also need to invest in their teachings more and Increase their enthusiasm. This will ultimately increase motivation within the students to engage in their courses.
Joppatowne high school is a place where every student can be themselves and interact with other in harmony. The first school in the nation to have a Homeland Security Program which teaches students(including me) the ins and outs of keeping our country safe. 3 major strands are the GSI mapping, forensic science and criminal justice.
it's like a small school but a big family. I never thought i would like it when i first started school there my sophomore year, but most people were really nice. the teachers definitely know what they are doing and the students are quite intelligent as well
Over my four years, I have had a great experience with Joppatowne High School. It may not be the prettiest or best-equipped school, but the experiences and people I have encountered have been great. The teachers are amazing, and truly want to help; I have not encountered a bad teacher. There aren't as many opportunities as other schools, but there are plenty for the vast majority of people. Probably the best opportunity is the Homeland Security program, which I have never heard anything bad about.
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!
I overall enjoyed my experience at Joppatowne, the teachers are easy to talk to about any problem and they do a good job of making sure students safety is the top priority. However the school also lacks in many areas such as sports, food, and clubs. There are very few clubs, the lunch is average, and sports at Joppatowne has to be the worst in the county.
Joppatowne High School is in fact the worst school in Harford County. The environment of the school is horrible. The walls are bare with a couple posters here and there that have been up for years. The walls are brick with no paint which makes the hallways and classrooms dark. The whole school just gives anyone a feeling of depression.
Overall, Joppatowne was a great School, the teachers care personally about each and every student. They work to push us all harder and harder each day because they know that we are capable of more. The students vary, some care and some don't, the staff at Joppatowne strives to ensure that the students who care, or even don't care, about their academics receive equal opportunity. I loved my time at Joppatowne High School and it is all because of the amazing teachers and staff that worked so hard to make sure each and every one of us were more than prepared for our next big journey.
I truly enjoyed my time at Joppatowne. I love that each teacher there gives their all when it comes to their teaching/lessons. Every teacher I had made sure I felt comfortable to express myself and ask for help when needed. I do believe that the school needs more teachers due to a rise in students.
they're cutting funding even though our school is broke enough as it is.
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.
