    Overall Experience: I have been at Jenks my whole life and wouldn't change a thing. It is big, but not to big. It definitely pushes you to your full potential and gives you so many opportunities to grow and be great. The teachers are super great and really have a passion for what they teach. Sometimes rules can be very strict, but I think that comes with every school.

    Educational Outcomes: I feel very prepared for college-level work- essays, balancing my time, thinking critically- because of the rigor of courses and the excellence that is expected. On the other hand, for practical life things, like what happens after you apply to college, I had to learn on my own. Moreover, the whiteness and South Tulsa culture of Jenks is very unlike the rest of the world, although I don't think anyone is to blame for that.

    Overall Experience: The funding and quality of programs, as well as the general expectation of excellence sets Jenks apart. However it is a very conservative school that focuses on football and cliques too much.
