  • Jonesboro gives you a learning experience that you wouldn't get at Lovejoy or Mundy's Mill High, because at Jonesboro the teachers actually care for what the students have to say. There are hardly any fights because people actually take the time to get to know one another.

  • Jonesboro High School is one of the better schools in the county, now some people may call Quote on quote lame ,but it still is a good school. Your into academics and care about your work you'll be alright, but if you don't care guess what you gonna fail. So it all depends on the student other than that I had a fun time with the coach roaches and mice. Those attending now and see this heed this "If you move you gonna miss it regardless if you hated it, it gets inside of you, besides it sure beats private school.
