    "We love the school, teachers and students. How ever there has been allot of changes the past couple of years. New Superintendents,teachers on leave and replacements. The replacements are learning and are not teaching up to code. Recently students were not prepared for the AP psychology exam. We still have a large difference in SATACT scores are lower than surrounding districts. Scrarsdale is always 100 points higher. why? I love the families, community and the kids. generally we have a great group of students all getting ready for college. John Jay should offer prep courses for the SAT and ACT but does not . Why? The community pays a great deal of Taxes all students are ear marked for college and work hard towards that goal. Sports are utmost important.The school is better than many but still has room for improvement."

    "Great teachers (for the most part). We have access to excellent facilities, and get a great education. Lost a star because of the ridiculous lack of racial and socioeconomic diversity."

    "Great faculty, administration, and peers. Wonderful time here at John Jay High School. All programs are strong with the exception of foreign languages. Competition is very high but overall outcomes are positive. The school excels in athletics especially wrestling and track and field."

    "John Jay High School is probably one of the nicest schools in westchester. However the school steadily is becoming worse to the students. As a sophomore, the sports used to be 100x better 4 years ago and the school rules used to be much more flexible. Now, it feels all students are trapped in a jail with no breaks (feb break was taken away 2 years ago). Personally I can't wait to get out but it definitely is one of the best schools in New York so if anyone wants to move here it's a good choice; just make sure you are involved with sports and you'll fit right in."

    "John Jay High school is very academically challenging and has a huge community support base. There is ample opportunity for kids to get involved in clubs and sports, there is something for everyone. John Jay students graduate will prepared to begin college."
