Jacksonville High School
- Jacksonville School District No. 117, IL
High School Senior: I think the amount of clubs and extracurriculars offered is exceptional. One of the most unique clubs at JHS that I am honored to be apart of is the REF (role models encouraging freshmen) program. Through this program, selective sophomores and upperclassmen volunteer their time to lead freshmen advisory all school year. The REFs help the freshmen adjust to their new high school environment and maintain lessons during the advisory period each day on various subjects. Each REF must go through a REF training program which set standards for everyone in the program and teaches them everything they need to know on how to be a good role model for the freshmen. This program really helps freshmen feel comfortable and provides them with a helping hand.
