Jordan High School Reviews

I'm glad I had my high school experience at Jordan High because I have been offered so many opportunities and resources to grow into my interests and even step out of my box. Jordan had provided great opportunities for our students to create a fun, welcoming community such as in clubs, events, school spirit games, etc. I only wish I had attended Jordan when it wasn't in construction only because it was noisy and spacious. The construction workers were very cooperative with the students, though! Whatever negative comments other schools have of Jordan, I believe that it is a safe environment where students can express themselves freely.

I’ve been in Jordan HS since 3 years. I love the school especially the staff and administrators. They work really hard to improvise rules and regulations. We have a team of amazning counsellors who help us constantly in keeping our grades high. I love the school atmosphere. We have a diverse culture here and everyone loves being a panther. Im a member of several clubs and we learn about different cultures all over the world. I am part of AIMS Academy, which is all medical related. In AIMS we get to volunteer at VA Hospital in our senior year and also they have amazing career opportunities for incoming college students. I love the school and I am proud to be a Panther!
I like Jordan High School because it is diverse. There are mixes of cultures in this school that makes it fun to meet new and different people. There are many clubs to join and many clubs that you could create! The teachers are great and are all about you and your needs to graduating and becoming a successful student. The Concurrent Enrollment classes are great to preparing you for college. The classes are set up just like a college class at SLCC. Overall Jordan is a great school to spend your four years of high school.
