One of the most notable things about Jordan High is the value placed on the diverse student body. As a student at Jordan High, I have been able to learn from a variety of people from a number of different cultures. We celebrate diversity through our "Dig Diversity" initiative as well as our annual multicultural assembly. Furthermore, Jordan High has the best teachers. Each and every teacher cares about the well-being of their student and will go above and beyond to ensure their success. Jordan High really is a close-knit community where everyone is given opportunities to succeed. All students are supportive of one another, and the school becomes a family. Not to mention that we have the best mascot: The Beetdiggers! However, if I were to improve one thing, it would be the number of students turning out to events. In order to establish a close community that feels like home, more students need to come to school-sponsored events, whether that be football games or the musical.

At Jordan High School there are teenagers that put themselves into groups. There are popular groups aren't popular groups and weird groups, things like that. Jordan is a place that everyone can feel welcome to become friends with anybody. Jordan is diverse, and focuses on how we can grow to become good adults and great learners. Our teachers go out of their way to help us take our education a level higher. And you will always get recognized for your good behavior and great academics. Jordan is a place where you want to be everyday, and the helpful teachers and staff help us along the way. Having teachers being there for us before and after school for extra help is always a bonus!
Jordan High School is the very best! I am a Student Body Officer this school year so I have had the opportunity to work closely with the faculty, administration, and students very closely, all of whom make excellent contributions to the social and academic environment at Jordan High School. There is a strong and beautiful diversity, bringing in many cultures, languages, and traditions to the atmosphere of the school.
