    I am a student of a differnt race at jay high school and I have been treated unfairly and haven't got the help I need. I have asked for help and they said you should go to a behavoral school. I am not a bad student. The students are excellent and try to help everyone. I wouldn't recommend anyone to this school cause of what the school has done. They gave my brother so many problems so he gave up. now he is in a new school and is doing so much better. I used to be an honor roll student till i stayed with jay.

    I wouldn't bring my OWN kids to this school (Fortunately I'm going to be CHILDFREE). Forget being a student here if you're an introvert. I was an introvert and I got horrible treatment by fellow students. The admin never did anything about it either. The sports in the school should be dropped as well.

    I am also a student of Jay High School. This School is excellent if you are bad at school or exceed in school but the school treats the average students with a lower amount of attention. The teacher have just received new contracts and are excited to teach. If you are planning to attend this school contact the school as soon as possible because the classes fill up quick. I have requested the same class two years in a row and still cannot get it. The students are very good people and are all friends. No one is treated as an outsider.

I am a student at this school and I am proud to go here. If you are looking for a great town to move to Jay is the place. I hope you choose to move here!
