My daughter started to Jacksonville High School this year in 7th grade. It has been a awful experience. We are with drawing here at Christmas break. I have went to the school on several occasions trying to get help from the staff but no such luck. If anything it made it harder on my daughter. She has cried and cried telling us how she hates the school, students and teachers. I wished I would have lisened to everyone that were telling me not to let her go there but you know I thought well I have raised her in church to make the right decisions and to treat people fairly, but once they get into the real world where there are mean and bully kids, along with adults that could care less about the child that is getting bullied and picked on, it steals the childs sweet happy spirit. She has always been a straight A student making one B in the 6 years of her school life. But when her grades starting slipping and droped down to Ds and Cs, I knew then it was my responsiblity to do something and do it quick to help her furture. So we will no longer attend Jacksonville High School. It is SAD but it is TRUE. Would not recommend sending any child to this school.
