Jacksonville High School Ratings & Reviews
An excellent school with superb teachers. JHS has an exceptional academic curriculum with art, music, drama, and a variety of sports for boys and girls.
Great Academic school. Athletic program is mediocre and very, very political. Does not matter how good you are in athletics, more important is who you and your parents are. There is no off season sports program.
This school has started depending too much upon technology to teach the students. The teachers are rude and lazy. Have had them tell me there is no such thing as a "504 plan" (which is state law). Tends to have their favorite students, and if you are not a favorite then too bad for you. Terrible school system. And their online system is a joke. They (without permission) created my underage child an email account. Some teachers are so lazy now they do not issue books and require all assignments to be completed online (and do not check for plagiarism). Bullying is not taken seriously. My son actually "paid" for other children to "protect" him. When brought to the schools attention, they did not do anything to help. He was physically attacked by another student and had books smashed over his head and all the attacker received was "ISS" and Alternative School.
I'm a former student and moved away because of this school. The administration only cares about good test scores and has let students to free after getting caught with drugs so not to make the school look bad. One of the students and one of my friends committed suicide. There where serval students participating in self mutilation. I am include in this because of rampant bullying. The drug problem at this school is horrible and for alittle while I succumbed to the pressure and did drugs. I moved to a Georgia because of these problems
JHS offered my child opportunities both academically and socially in a variety of venues. The teachers genuinely care about the students. The atmosphere is one of high standards, high expectations and high achievement. At this school, a student can "get out of it what they put into it". Slackers tend to fade away from this environment.
