I moved to Jacksonville from Tampa, FL in the middle of my sophomore year and graduated from JHS in 1995. I chose to take as many AP courses as possible, I chose to go to the band hall during lunch and practice, I chose to study, I chose to ask questions of my teachers, I chose to stay out of trouble, etc... As a result of these choices I graduated with honors from both high school and college. The faculty with whom I had an opportunity to work were rather exceptional! Don't get me wrong, the school had fights and gang problems almost daily. I remember when we had an assembly on the new dress code change and it had to be dismissed because it almost turned into a riot. The school was a disaster, but I refused to use that as an excuse as to why I couldn't get a good education. Remember, what you give is what you get! Some of my best teachers were Ms. Schulten, a new chemistry teacher whose name I have forgotten, Mrs. Catlett and Mr. Belotti to name a few. They had books, desks, teachers, a library, classes, etc... and I had curiosity. Simply put, if one desires a good education, then one needs to GO GET IT!!! Go Red Devils!!!

Agree with the school needing competent leadership. My son has been jumped twice now this school year and I was not called on either occasion. He has been caught skipping school by the police and I have checked his attendance record (which is awful) but I have not been contacted in over six months by the school about his attendance. The school must notify me if I am to enforce standards on the child. I've resorted to a FINS petition. This school should be shut down.

This school is in desperate need of competent instructional leadership. We have some good assistant principals, and they do what they can -- but until there is change at the top, improvement simply will not happen.
