The Academies at Jonesboro High School Reviews
This school is a perfect size! The teachers are very active in class and in student's lives. Students are able to ask questions in class and talk to the teacher outside of class for extra help. There are three academies - BCAL (Business, Communication, Arts, and Law), HHS (Health and Human Services), and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). There is a place for every student at Jonesboro High School to learn and prepare for college.
My experience at Jonesboro High School will forever be apart of my favorite memories. I have never met so many great teachers, coaches, and friends until I started school there. Not only did they make me feel welcomed, the school also provided many opportunities for young adults like me. They have a great staff who help push students to strive for the best. I feel that I have an advantage over other teens for having knowledge about about how the real world works. The career coaches are constantly sending emails about upcoming events, internships, and scholarships. Without them I probably wouldn't have many scholarships. They also work tirelessly to help me get to where I need to be. Without them pushing me and other students, I would probably not be attending college this fall. I'm truly grateful for what this school has done for me.
This is a somewhat unorganized school. Events like act aspire happen and teachers dont know about schedules or who is supposed to be where. I would say everything is improving, but at a very slow pace. I believe some of the teachers are much better than others, specifically the English teachers. The math teachers aren't terrible but they are not wonderful either. On the bright side, JHS does offer some AP classes that give college credit and a variety of classes that aren't offered in the area. To sum it up, this is a mediocre school that offers a variety of classes.
