I went to Jordan in the 60's. Seems like it has gone down hill. I loved it and it was a different school then. The teachers cared and in general was a good place to go to school. I'm surprised to read the negative postings.

If you have a student without special needs of any kind...this is a good school in comparison to some others. In four years I have been battling this school with 3 principals (soon to be 4), countless LEA and uncooperative administration. In four years and three children....there have been three different needs but the same struggle year after year. Every year we meet the first month of school. By Holiday time....everyone makes plans for what to do when students return. By time the teacher, ec staff and I are on the same page its the end of the year. We have the same exact fight every single year. At this school I have received a (EC) Parent Handbook from 2008 but was updated 2009. Last week after me asking repetitively I have finally received a 2016 handbook. I had a son with a 504 plan. The teachers wouldn't even return emails. Emails are always a problem but at least its a paper trail. I had a son be bullied last year. There was less than 10 students 2 teachers in the classroom and no one did anything until my son decided he had had enough. I had a teacher become confrontational in front of students and wouldn't even listen to my freshmans special needs. I have asked the PTA, Principal, staff and more if there is a EC representative in the PTA. No one will answer. Our needs are very different. Most of us have worries that no one would understand. Most regular parents have no idea what a IEP is. Most parents are able to go to work and not worry about their children. Most parent don't have concerns about a contained classroom or inclusion. They don't worry about ESY. They don't worry about records and placement. Football, solar panels, track nor any other organization deals with our issues. Students are clueless because there is more disabilities than mental retardation even though that's the term used no matter what the disability. This is hands down a great school in comparison to others but that's just for the quote unquote normal student. As I look through the website every year....WHERE ARE WE REPRESENTED? I appreciate they want to be confidential but student will continue to not include everyone if the adults won't. Every single year I have to start due process. Every single year. Changing principals with the same bitter staff is worthless. Now there has been two teachers that were great. NOT EC EITHER. SHAME ON THEM.

My daughter is in her first year in this huge and under staffed high school. I am not impressed with the majority of the teachers. Except in one subject, no one seems to foster curiosity. Textbooks are rare and outdated and nobody uses them. The kids write the class content off the board and It is all about memorizing the notes to replicate them in time for one of the overwhelming number of tests and quizzes. Homework and class work impacts the final grade only marginally. Student life is all about procedures and not getting caught violating any and the teachers have to spend ways too much time on crowd control. Unfortunately, the present sheriff deputies are fairly busy. Granted, many symptoms are not Jordan specific but common in all big DPS high schools and teachers would love to administer fewer tests. I do like the current administration and hope they can improve the student experience.

My daughter is in her third year at Jordan and overall she has had a wonderful experience there. First and foremost I am impressed with the teaching staff. Despite the attack on public educators in our state the Jordan staff has remained constant with a high degree of professionalism and quality teaching. She has been able to pursue her passions of writing and drama at a very high level while being challenged in her AP classes. The students at Jordan are very accepting of one another and I'm so grateful to have my daughter in a public school where she can experience peers who are from different backgrounds and experiences. I know she is a better person for it.

I think Jordan is an excellent school. While there have been some changes in the demographics, these changes have benefited Jordan. I think Jordan provides the student with an excellent education. There is a tendency for some people to rate schools on the basis on where the students come from( i.e children from poor families = poor schools. However, the educational experts contend that one has to look at where all children are going. The year that my children graduated, the number of students who were selected to attend top colleges (i.e., Davidson, Yale, UNC-CH, Harvard, Middlebury, Duke, etc., ) exceeded that of some of the private schools in the area. I think because the enrolled students were exposed to diversity, , they were more attractive to the top schools then the students who attended "elusive" high schools. Don't be deceived by arbitrary ratings.
