    "Although high school may be a scary place for millions of teens, just like it was for me at George Jenkins, I believe it could easily be considered less of a struggle if the school came together to work on a few of leading issues. As my generation ages, we seem to be less understood by authority. I will say that teachers seem to scold more than comfort. I never got into much trouble in school, but when I did need some extra help or just an adult to speak to, I couldn't think of one I'd be comfortable running to. Detention is another issue that I believe should be considered. First period would start at 7am, and without a car, I will admit that I had difficulties arriving on time. Rather than being sent to sit in a room in silence when I was late, there should be a more productive option for students. Detention for being a few minutes late is more destructive than actually arriving late. Instead of missing the first five minutes, we have missed an entire period of learning."

    "I am having the time of my life at George Jenkins High School. At our school we have the best principle I could ask for. He is so involved with the band and other organizations; he is always there to support his students in any way he can. The only thing that I would like to see change is to not have any coaches for teachers. I have had the experience with a coach as my U.S. history teacher, and it was the least educational class I have ever had. Other than that I couldn't imagine that George Jenkins could get any better."

    "My experience at George Jenkins HS was one to remember. I recall my first day of high school and being so nervous I thought I was going to be sick. However,i quickly gained a great amount of friends and was on track with my grades (since my teachers were nice and always willing to help.) Most if not all of my teachers each year were good and I did learn many new things. My favorite part about high school was being on my high school dance team and performing at the pep rallies and dancing at football/basketball games. The one thing that I would change about my school would be the bathrooms. Every single one of the bathrooms were always dirty and out of soap. I would always have to carry hand sanitizer in my back pack with me at all times. Overall, I do not think I would have wanted it any other way. I am very proud to have attended George Jenkins HS for all of my four years of high school."

    "George Jenkins is a very well rounded High School. Everyone is actually very open and warm to all the students. We rarely have fights, we don't have bullying and our school spirit is through the roof! Our principle is the best. He really cares and shows much compassion to every one of the students. Administration shows up to school events, sports events, and spirit rally's to support the student body. If I could change one thing it would be, get more involved with the younger middle school population to invite them into the highschool."

    "One thing that I like about George Jenkins is that most of the teachers there care a lot about their students and want to see them succeed. One thing that could change is the old technology that the school still uses"
