John Jay high school to me is one of the best high schools in San Antonio. Most of the teachers will ensure and try their best to see that all their students excel and pass all classes. It is also very competitive . John Jay High School has the best soccer team in San Antonio with great efforts made by all the coaches .Despite the fact that Mar back road is still under construction , Jay high school is a very unique school. I'm proud to be a Mustang!!! By Barnabas Obadiah

One of the better schools in the area, John Jay has a pretty good reputation. There are good programs and clubs to join in and get into. It's easy to pass the classes. Just do your homework. Kids are nice. You'll definitely make friends. Just don't get into any fights. And don't get into any fights with people of a different race. Because JHS had previously been known to have 'race wars' in the past. Don't want to spark another one. That's why I kept my african american behind in my books, kept my class, didn't act ghetto, and kept myself above the foolishness. The faculty is great and the teachers are excellent. Have fun and most of all enjoy yourself.

Despite its location in San Antonio, Jay is a very good school academically in its extracurricular activities, especiallly its AFJROTC program. The best in the nation bar none and NOT a military recruiting program, if you want your child to go to college and get the financial assistance you need, then enroll them in Jay's AFJROTC program! Eightyf-five percent of Jay's AFJROTC senors are going to college in 2009--the likes of Michigan, Pitt, Rensselaer, Texas A&M, Texas, Baylor, VMI to name a fe. Great teachers, great students.

My child attended a different high school prior to coming to John Jay where she was in accelerated class and maintaining a A average. When is enter John Jay they put her in regular class and her grades have dropped to A and B.

I learned so much from the teachers at John Jay High. I knew many students that were not as involved in their academic success but it was the teachers and counselors that were always there for those who wanted to pursue higher education. For that I thank them for all their help and inspiration. --Cynthia Trevino

I think that john jay high is a great school. I love it here. Every one here greets you with a friendly smile and teachers know what they are teaching. The atmosphere here is overwelming.

Most of the emphisis in this school is not on academics, athletics, rotc, or spirit organizations, it's on keeping the students in school. There is a high drop-out rate at John Jay High School which makes this the most concern. The students have the potential to be their best, but outside distracts block that potential. Some parents are upset at the staff but there is only so much that they can do involving students outside of the classroom. Currently, I am a sophmore in the Science Academy -- a wonderful academic program here at John Jay, and everyday I see some of my friends drift off into a downward spiral of skipping classes, suspension, alternative, drugs, sex, and preganacy. I still love this school though, because every person, place, and thing have their problems.
