Overall I love the diversity in the school. There are all kinds of cultures (African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, etc.) and everyone is accepted. The school is pretty clean and the bathroom is always kept up. But I would want the school to put more effort in extracurricular activities. Theres not a lot of information on clubs, and this causes a lot of people to be misinformed on joining requirements. Also little funding restricts clubs to really get involved. The little funding also applies to sports. The sports here require a fee of $100 for gear and equipment for athletes which makes it unfair for the less fortunate kids.

J.P. Taravella High is an amazing school with a diverse range of clubs, programs, and people. There is something for everyone at JPT, such as drama, chorus, a wide range of sports, an amazing band and culinary program, and so much more. JPT is also home to 3,200 students, some from different parts of the country and other countries, and it is honestly one of the best places to learn about different cultures and explore the values of others. The faculty-- administration, teachers, and other staff members-- are generally firm, but fair and try to give us as much freedom as they possibly can without jeopardizing our safety. Overall, I'm glad I spent the last few years being a J.P. Taravella Trojan.
With in the four years of attending JPT, I expected better. The school does give its students opportunities to better themselves but the administration does not push the students to make use of the opportunities. Administration leaves the students out of this that can better help their future careers, and life paths. During my last year in the school there were no guidance counselor there to help me understand how college applications and scholarship work.
