It's very diverse and their are many clubs/activities you can join throughout the school year.Jordan is always recognizing students and staff for their accomplishments.Each year the percentage of students going to college is increasing.Jordan is known for having a bad reputation, but people should come to the school and see it's environment beofre judging it, because Jordan is a great school. Don't get fooled by the rumors/gossips.
Review Jordan High School
My experience at Jordan High School would have to be very good because Jordan offers me a chance to be part of the world wide program called International Baccalaureate. Which gives me a chance to be prepared and learn skills to take on the work load when it comes to college. Especially when we get the chance to be both in AP and IB classes that help us get college credit and have a head start once we enter college. Furthermore, if I were to improve anything I think I would add block schedule because it gets hard to manage all the work load everyday and it would give us more time to get things done during each class.
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.
