Jordan High School Reviews

All Categories
Jordan High School is located in a low-income area of Long Beach, California. The school is made up mostly of minority students. The community does everything in its power to give the best high school experience to the students here. The school is currently under construction in hopes to improve the student life on campus. The school is usually looked down upon because of low test scores and its history of violence. The school does offer many diverse pathways a student can take to pursue a career in their field of interest. Overall, the school is making many improvements to better the reputation of the school but it all starts with the students.
Review Jordan High School
I initially did not want to attend Jordan high school and I did everything I could to transfer out however, I did not succeed and it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. Despite Jordan's reputation, I saw a growth in myself and the school during those 4 years I was there. At Jordan I received all the help a student with immigrant parents and first generation to attend college can need. My senior year I spent my time in the career center and got informed on all the college application workshops and financial aid workshops. Also my counselor never left my side, whenever I needed her or a document she made sure I got It. Jordan has magnificent, caring, well prepared teachers. Early in high school I didn't think college was for me but Jordan (teachers, staff, programs) made me realized I could be great if I just took advantage of what was given to me and that was a great school with wonderful resources.
Throughout my High school years in Jordan so far, was honestly pretty well. Though despite there are fights happening still for the past 3 years, my life involvement in clubs (My own club as well), friends I have made, and activities helped me pull through my stresses and my surroundings to feel a bit more comfortable. What I liked to do is Drawing anime, building robots, making video games, playing video games, doing badminton, and all sorts of other things. Though If only I wished they would promote mechanical engineering and Japanese learning foreign language in the future, even after I graduated, I hoped they would bring it into existence.
