All of my children have and still are attending South Jones Elementary plus High school, The children should be taught the times tables while in elementary and not promoted if they do not know them, The school breakfast and lunch program could do a lot better most children complain about how bad the food is and a lot do not eat it so it goes to waste. It would be much better to give them well presented tasty food that they will eat and I can see no reason for it not to be this way. The school could probably do with a lot more educational books so students do not have to share, Now the physical education side of this school is not good in my opinion as it only seems to cater to football, baseball and basketball, any child that does not participate in these sports do not get much in the way of exercise if any. It's a shame they do not have a gymnastics program in hardly any schools these days. But South Jones does have a very good music /band program.

I am a student here and this school is great. The lunches could be better but overall it is a good school. The art department is great and the teacher is fun.

I think that South Jones has (some) great courses, and (some) great students, like most schools. I believe it is a lot Safer School, than in a Lot of States and even Cities. My children have been to quite a few over the years. Last Stop, this one, before College, hopefully.

I am a student at South and I think the school could do some things better. Although the music program is amazing, the school's discipline and the students' food is lacking. Many teachers do not enforce the rules.

I went to South and it is a GREAT school. I find myself ahead of Forrest County school graduates in the business and college world. Their music program is the best in the state and they have great sports too. It is a safe and relaxed environment for kids of all ages.

The academic programs at this school aren't the best they could be. The teachers don't support their students as much as they should. The music programs are great.

South is a great school! Both of my kids including myself have went to this school. The school has a good learning enviroment. It is great for any kid to go to! It also has the highest grades in the county, the sports are great.
