The teachers at the University of Arkansas are top-quality teachers. Their teaching styles are different from that I knew in high school. Even though they teach tougher classes, their knowledge of the material is above superb, and they lecture the material in a way that I can still understand, no matter how hard the topic. Their interest in is is definitely a lot more than I would have thought, they communicate to us their after-hours every day, for help on work, or even just to talk about the lastest Razorback game! Grading is always on time, which I can really appreciate, and their always honest in their grading.

The Academies at Jonesboro High School is a wonderful school overall. The music department is one of the most dedicated departments. I highly recommend taking choir if you want to learn how to read music, sight sing, solfege, etc. There are so many opportunities available through this department as well. We also have fabulous musicals, which is one of the most involved activities, but well worth it in the end. Some things that I would like to see changed for future students, is the lack of communication between students and faculty. There have been times when there would be an important event that no one would know about until the last minute. As I said, The Academies at Jonesboro High School is a wonderful education opportunity.
The experience you get from the school are pretty great, the diversity of the school is great that you can make so many friends. the teachers are well experienced that are good to connect with their student. The thing they should consider is worrying about the controlling of student treating them like some type of boarding school with tardy sweep because it'll only cause rebeling and distracting on education.
