The best decision I ever made, was to attent Jenkins Honors Academy. I have loved every minute of it. The teachers and staff are amazing and work to make our education top notch. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a fulfilling and challenging high school experience.

I agree that Jenkins is a good high school. My daughter had some of the best teachers I could have ever imagined. We have moved away and my daughter stills studies her Spanish and is hooked on physical science!I liked the fact that her teachers really cared about her success.

I am not a parent either but I graduated from Jenkins in 2002 and it was a very good school. The school had very good teachers and administration and it was a very challenging school.

I'm an alumnus not a parent, but I can tell you the Jenkins is a good school. The principal is doing her best to make the school safe, but the problem is with the parents who don't discipline their kids at home. Extracurricular activities do a lot as far as community service and sponsoring events on campus, but the students don't want to participate. I will always consider my time at Jenkins as very vital as to where I am now. I am a sophomore at Georgia Southern University and I am majoring in Information Technology.
