There is little to no communication from the school to parents, when they do communicate it is to tell you of an event at most 2 days away. They have an online grade communication site, but grades are only updated maybe twice in a 9 week period-if your child is having trouble in a class you don't know it till it is too late. Asking for teacher help to understand classwork (as a parent) you are made to feel guilty for asking and I have even been told "your child needs to know this material not you". I have no problem trying to further explain class material so my child understands, but teachers are of little help. Most "learning" is directed at the final state testing requirements and most teachers are difficult to communicate with. If your child is great at sports, then you are given more attention and assistance so the sports program can excel. My child started in kindergarten here and is in high school now, I kept hoping it would get better, but the high school teachers are the worst. Only 2 years to go and we are done here....counting the time left.

As far as schools are concerned, Jessieville has an amazing choral department, an enlightening art's section, self-motivational instruction, and is an ever-growing environment. As you change and grow, you will also discover your surroundings changing and growing with you.

I go to Jessieville School I am a cheerleader and I love this school. Its better than any of the other schools that I have ever gone to. I think that we have top of the line teachers and all three principals are wonderful. The students are very kind and welcoming. The teachers care about you and want to help you succed. I wouldn't want to go to any other school. Go Lions!!! =)

hi! i go to j-v and id have to say i definately agree with both of you but jessieville isnt so bad in my eyes yeah we pretty much worship our football team which is like 6-3 right now =/ but the students here have to have some kind of motivation. and teh fact that we spent thousands of dollars on the newest arena doesnt help much when it could go to a better cause like school lunches anyways!!! the teachers here know what theyre doing (well most of them) and the students are good hearted kids! jv could use some serious improvements so thats why we have the PTA (i think we do anyways) but if yall think somethings wrong mr. wright/mr.foshee is more likely to listen to the partents of the students over the students!!!! so speak up -->Senior 2009<--

Although I agree that Jessieville gives the athletics department and athletes too much leeway, this is the 21st century, I really like the school. They are trying to improve test scores. They are trying to build a good foundation for our kids. I hope they continue to expand their curriculum and increase learning emphasis and reduce sports emphasis. Jessieville is better than most, but still has a ways to go to balance sports, arts, and literacy. I have 1 child who graduated from there and because of the college courses went into college with credit under their belt. Kudos to Jessieville. So Jessieville can offer alot if the student wants to take advantage of it.

besides the fact the principal Steve wright is an utter imbecile the fact that he singles out students who are not football players or not involved in any sports among other things books are old and are hardly ever replaced do to the fact that the only thing the school cares about is football when they are not very good in the first place a 2a team thats pathetici would recomend home schooling than this school
