Honestly, due to it high ratings by others, I expected it to be a good school,yet that changed when I started as a new student in 9th grade last year. It is a terrible school, the staff is not very friendly, and most of the staff speaks broken English and mostly Spanish. The teachers are mostly young, and have no experience or caring about us. My Algebra 1 teacher, was horrendous, he would mostly talk about how great Jamiaca is more than math, he would also, not inform us when we had our chapter tests. I barely learned in there. My mother had to straighten him out a few times. He still was stubborn and kept talking about the benefits of being a teacher,(insurance, paid during summer,etc.). The students are not very welcoming. I swear, I was lucky that I made 3 friends there. They are just rude and not very including. The only good thing about the school, is that they have a dance program. That is the only reason I sort of wanted to go there. The dance teacher is amazing, and all that. My English teacher wa okay, but she was really nice am she actually taught, except she spoke REALLY broken English. I mean, she could barely pronounce the words on our spelling bee.
