Faced with enormous cuts and hard decisions, the board, teachers, parents, and community have rallied behind this junior high/high school. With a very strong support system and team work, the students are still among some of the brightest. Board members and teachers have continued strong leadership and students are still thriving in this rural community. The programs may have been scaled back, but the student love this school and are still very actively involved in making it the best. The school spirit is unsurpassed. At every event, the entire community is involved to participate. Most importantly, students continue to graduate in exceedingly high numbers. Teachers are encouraging and have remained focused on providing the best curriculum even amongst forced pay cuts and few lay offs. For a district in a poverty income level area, you would never know the disparities when feeling the pride walking into this school. Teachers have given the utmost respect and dignity by the superintendent and board members. Students even attend some board meetings to share projects or show slides. It truly is a dynamic setting.

I am a current senior at JLHS and I am quite disgusted with our school. The curriculum requires zero effort to complete. You could go through your entire high school career without studying for a single test and do fine. Extra curricular activities are also a joke. If you would like to do an activity, that is not a sport, such as scholar's bowl or forensics look elsewhere. Student participation at school events and in the classroom is nearly nonexistent. The lunches are absolutely despicable. We are served a minimal amount of food that is poor quality and can sometimes be hard to choke down. It is really quite a sad place to go to school. It feels like everyone just goes through the motions and there is not heart put into learning, or teaching for that matter.

I am a student who has spent my entire high school career at Jayhawk-Linn. I feel as though the school has been declining in an unfortunate way. The amount of truly qualified and passionate teachers can be counted on one hand. As a soon to be graduating student, I feel as though I am woefully unprepared for college. 99% of the classes can be passed without any studying, and as such, many students have no study skills whatsoever. Parents: I strongly urge to consider your children's future before you enroll them at JLHS.

I think Jayhawk Linn has declined some but it is still a good school. It has many caring teachers. There are some not so good things at Jayhawk but there are some schools that are having bigger problems. I do agree that some teachers do not care the way they should but more credit needs to be given to more than just the drama and science dept.

This school has been gone downhill rapidly for the 06/07 school year.This used to be a good and balanced school, no more. No one seems to be in charge or no what they are doing. Kudos to the drama and science dept.(meaning mr 'B') for hanging in there and putting the kids first.

During the past 7 years I have had 3 children in the Jayhawk Linn system. Without a doubt a major decline in quality of teachers and administrators.

I have had 5 of my children go through JLHS. I feel that the 2006-07 school year, has seen the school greatly decline, new teachers who seem to care very little about the students, and a completely new administration, unfamiliar with the school and community have all contributed to this. The school does have a few excellent , caring teachers, such as in the science and drama depts. Less then excellent is the math dept. JLHS does offer a safe school environment, and parents are treated respectfully when calling with a concern. JLHS should offer more extracurricular activities that don't involve sports, so all students can feel involved with the school in a positive way.
