Great teachers & coaches! High academic excellence and great environment to place students in! A Very welcoming and non-discriminatory place. Students are very respectful as well as teachers and coaches. Sports are very good and coaches really project respect and discipline on athletes.

Something I really like about my high school is that bullying isn’t a big issue. It happens in schools all around the world, but my school works very hard to prevent it and encourages friendly behavior. However, a negative about the school would be that there aren’t many events that include the ninth grade campus. The ninth graders are separate from the high school, and that makes a tough year a lot harder. I think that they should put in time and effort to being the two campuses together.
Joshua High School has a very encouraging faculty. They work very hard to make a positive school environment for the children, and they have excellent teachers. The students are very friendly, and although Joshua's sports are not the best, they have a very well rounded sports program that works very hard to teach kids the value of a team and working together. The cafeteria food is not the best, but the Lunch Ladies are all very nice, and love talking to the kids. There are also many other extracurricular activities besides sports, like fine arts or UIL! I would give Joshua an overall grade of A-.
