I love the opportunity that Jenks gives its students to thrive and excel in every aspect of life. There is a way for every student to feel involved and a way for everyone to belong. Whether it's drama, sports, or even a love for casseroles, there is a place for you at Jenks High School. Jenks also does everything they can to help you achieve your academic goals. The teachers are so caring and want to see you achieve your goals without handing you a good grade. There is such an attitude of excellence that floods our hallways and I love that about Jenks! Go Trojans!

Jenks High School has their motto on a digital billboard in front of the school: Academics, Athletics, and Attitude. There are organizations and clubs for every student, the academic rigor is exceptional, and over ten students are National Merit Scholars every year!

My experience at Jenks High School has been great. Our school emphasizes the five A's, which are Academics, Activities, Arts, Athletics, and Attitude. There are many opportunities to be in recreational sports or different clubs; many students encourage one another to be involved. If there is anything I could change, it would be the classroom sizes because the number of students attending our school is increasing significantly every year. I would also increase the time alloted for lunch. For many students, lunch is the only small break they have between classes; lunch tends to feel rushed.
