I'm happy to say that this school has finally done something intelligent. By Hiring our newest art teacher. The school has become more artsy and eye appealing . Not only that but for once hired a teacher who cares for her students . Job well done Jordan.
My nephew had terrible problems at his school in Florida, and his dad sent him to Columbus to live with his mom. He enrolled at Jordan, and it turned his life around. He was introduced to careers in medicine by a caring teacher, was captivated, and a kid who did nothing much but play video games turned into an A student with a bright future. If you are headed for college and have the capacity to keep up with extremely bright classmates, Columbus High or Northside are probably better choices, but if you plan to end your education after high school or perhaps a technical college, Jordan seems to be an excellent choice.
I've read through all the postings and realize most of them are dated. Mr. Tovey and Dr. Kelley have been gone for some time now. As the parent of a Jordan graduate, I can tell you that my child's experience at Jordan was awful. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. My children who attended another school in Columbus have had much better experiences and much better educations. My son attended chose Jordan for the academy, and the skills he acquired there have been beneficial. He even had a couple of great teachers who are to be commended for staying at Jordan instead of accepting positions at other schools. But the good was far outweighed by the bad. The 'bad' was a number of teachers and a counselor who were not interested in helping certain children succeed. They have an agenda that is rather obvious. Please don't send your child to Jordan.
