My daughter joined the school in 9th grade and I have to disagree with some of the comments. The kids have been very down to earth, welcoming and just 'good, decent kids'. The teachers are dedicated and very approachable. My daughter was a high achiever in a different school district, but with great teachers and teaching styles, she has maintained her level of excellence. From the secure campus, leadership, teachers, guidance counselor and kids.....we are very happy with John Jay High School and very happy we chose to move districts
If you enjoy a place where the students drive nicer cars than their teachers, cliches from hell, a 95% white demographic and encourages a stress level that isn't even seen by Harvard, then JJHS is the place for you!
yes the school has high test scores but thats only because you spend everyday practicing for the test and not talking the necessary time to really learn the information because a the end of the day higher test scores mean more money for them
My son is finishing up his senior year at John Jay High School in Cross River. This school has been a tremendous experience for him. When he first came to John Jay, we moved from Virginia, he was very shy and withdrawn. As he entered his Junior year you could suddenly see the change in him emerging. He started to make friends and became more outgoing. I truely believe that this is a result of the effort and provided by the staff at John Jay. My son was an IEP student and even though he was a good student with more than passing grades he need invidual attention to succeed. John Jay ent far and above in providing this to him. He is graduating with a NY State Regents diploma, something i would never even dreamed of. This is a fantastic school and i highly reccommend John Jay to all parents and gaurdians. Thank you.
