This school is amazing, I have never had better teachers and friends. The principal is amazing and works hard every day to do great things with this school. There can be some mean kids but for the most part, the kids are nice. I love this school so much! You should come here!!!!

I think Jenkins is. a Wonderful school. We are a capturing kid's heart school, or CKK. If you don't know what that means, it means ALL staff try to make every single other person in the building feel amazing, including the students. The principal is amazing. He makes sure that everybody is always on task, and when they're not he helps refocus their attention. Especially during this Corona Virus update, he makes sure that all teachers have their lessons planned out and ready for their students. Counselors are downright amazing. Whenever you have a problem, you can take it to them and they will try their best to help you.. but you have to remember that some situations are beyond their control. You might have to go see a counselor outside of school. So, if you are a student, like myself, and you are planning to go to Jenkins, you have. Picked a really good choice.

This school has a big problem with communication and knowing how to handle special needs students. They rather Hands - On students and blame the parents than trying to figure a situation out the school to rather see students fail then succeed. The principal is all about himself and not about helping solve problems and they only want the big awards. I would stay far away from the school as possible.

This school has not done anything against students bullying other students. They take no action against the student performing the bullying. Counselors will talk to the student being bullied, but what really does that show the student being bullied when they take no action against student performing the bullying. They've even got video of student being strangled and nothing happening to other student. They've had student attacked in class with teacher present and nothing really happening to student who did the attacking and has a history of doing this to other students.
