Its good to hear that the school has improved over the years. When outcast, Gary Graves, became vice principal at that school, it began to go downhill. In fact, the regular school principle was every bit as wimpy as he looked which meant they didn't care about having a professional staff overall.

Jordan High School of Long Beach has so much to offer all students - don't listen to the "hype". Rumors of violence and safety issues are COMPLETELY FALSE. The environment is nothing short of perfection... students really CAN learn in their "own" comfort zone. At Jordan, students are praised for their efforts and achievements, motivated for higher learning. J-Town, (as Jordan is fondly referred to) is # 1, and so is the lady who makes it all happen - Principal Rosalind Morgan.

I am a parent of a senior and I have to admit I was one of those going crazy when my daughter didn't get accepted to any other high my mind there was no way my daughter was going to Jordan! I had heard so many bad coments & not a single good thing about it. I did everything I could to get a transfer and put her on every waiting list but it was impossible. Well to make things short, Jordan is not any diferent from any other school it actually has less violence then the so called good schools and academicly offers very good programs. The students succed if they want to and if the parents are involved if not it doesn't matter what school they go to. I'm now proud to say my daughter goes to J-Town and it is not ghetto!!! It's the real world!

I am a senior at Jordan, and I have to say that my 4 years at Jordan have been great!!! Jordan offers an awesome international program called International Baccalureate, which I am a part of. It is widely respected by top universities, and many countries offer this program at their schools!!!
