    Extracurriculars: Like I previously mentioned, there are clubs during and after school that can accomodate almost anyone on campus. Most students who join clubs are dedicated to them and often stat in them for years. As far as administrator support, there are a good amount of teachers who get along with the students very well and then there are some staff who clash with students everyday. There is definitely many options to have fun and find somewhere to fit in on campus.

    Overall Experience: There are many clubs at the school thay accomodate every group perfectly, I really love that. I also enjoy that Jordan offers a program called International Baccalaureate (IB) which is not offered at any other high school in Long Beach. The teacher-student relationships at th school are very positive and mutually beneficial. If i had to choose all over again, I would still choose Jordan High.

    Teachers: The teachers at my school typically are very knowledgeable and approachable. There are instances however, when the gtading is very inconsistent, attitudes are jot professional, and teachers are very unapproachable. They do seem to care a lot about the students and offer resources that we can use to help learn topics in real life situations and apply our skills to multiple disciplines.

    Academics: There is different programs in our school. A lot have different courses because of the program they choose. The teachers in Aims are great they help you they can be strict but they help a lot. The scheduling is not so fast but you still get to change your schedule. Their is a lot of work in aims but you can do it. You need the time.
