My daughter has been at Jenkins since her Freshman year of high school and graduates this year. She has played varsity soccer all four years. I have nothing but great things to say about the school. She has had amazing teachers and coaches and the administration has been wonderful!

My son attends this school taking AP and honors classes, he loves it! Feels like private school education at a public school. Lots of extracurricular activities, safe environment and great principal and asst principals who truly care about the students.

Mr.Hebert (aye-bear) is a great, student friendly teacher who really takes time to talk with kids and help them and teach them.

There are a few great teachers but more mean stuck up ones that have no desire to teach or be with the kids

Amount of homework: Just right

There really isn't much actual homework due to the fact that classes are nearly 2 hours long we usually finish it in class unless your socializing or slacking

In a way they do because they don't really do much to help you, kids always have to be watching and on top of there things otherwise the staff won't to much to tell them or let them know they need to get it together

I've seen a few respectful students but I can assure you it wasn't the school that taught them to behave that way

Nothing is done to teach kids manners the choice room is their scapegoat where they proceed to misbehave.

Once heralded as the best school in Lakeland (even affecting the home prices in its district) this school is run down and tired. It's athletic facilities (unless you are a baseball player) are pathetic for a school that has the name George Jenkins on the wall. Despite it being the only source of any real revenue, the football team is treated like some kind of annoyance and the administration is all too eager to pilfer the dollars the team generates into other areas (especially baseball!). Think j am exaggerating? Walk into the football locker room. Then walk into the baseball locker room. Case closed. Meanwhile the football team needs to work to raise funds to cover its needs since it doesn't even get to retain the concession sales!!! How ridiculous is that!!! A very anti-football mindset with the athletic leadership and even worse stewardship with the dollars they refuse to invest back into the very program that creates those dollars. We made a big mistake over the years being a loyal Eagles family. I am amazed Publix allows the name of its founder on this school. It's embarrassing.
