    Health & Safety: This school is very strict in some ways they do not allow many things on campus like many other schools such as drugs , weapons , and fighting. Which helps this school be a safer enviorment to be in . But i still see kids doing drugs at school or selling drugs , getting in fights which may be something they need to work on. The nurse in our school is not very helpful she's rude and many other students have said the same thing about her also. Theres not as much bullying many of the bullying happens online. I think my school is some what safe .

    Extracurriculars: This school has a lot of individual programs that you can take part in some are very much liked by students. Some programs and clubs students may dislike also some do it maybe because they want to look good for collge. But the commiment in clubs varies depends on how strict your advisor is and the most popular ones are female academy , male academy , XI sisters , and omega brothers . Afterschool programs that participate in organizations outside school and help students be better.

    Overall Experience: Overall my experience in this school has been great there is many diffrent classes to take and clubs or sports to participate in. The school itself has a bad reputation but i don't see jordan high school the way it's known for . A lot in this school has changed and I think it has because of our staff and teachers that have taken part in making our school enviorment a better place to be in. It's also been a good experience for me because of the many activites that go around in school were it makes it fun to be around the rallys etc. that go on around campus and meeting a lot of new people. High school has been good to me if I were to do it all over again I would.
