BEST SCHOOL EVER.

I am currently a senior, even though certain people have problems with the school for what ever reason, don't discourage another person to not come to the school. At Jones opportunities, many, are given. Your student just have to be willing to recieve it. I love my school and I will always be a TIGER! For this upset parent, God bless you and hopefully your child is doing much better where ever she may be.

i love Jones high school, my 3 children went to Jones and now they are doing very well on their jobs and i know plenty of kids came out of jones and they also have great jobs and making plenty of money, the 2012 parent who wrote that about jones is a demon too because you are lying, maybe your child just not smart because our kids get more scholarship than any other school in orlando, you really need to go and pray for yourself and your child because any other school would have put your child out too.

this is a terrible school. they are so busy disciplining the studets so that they can recieve an "A" that they are not providing appropriate education to the students. tallahassee needs to close this school down.the staff with a few exceptions are rude and unprofessional all the time. the ese specialist is a demon sent straight from heeelllll!!!!!! Jesus Christ, I pray for her salvation.Is there a truancy program at Jones? I see kids that know are not 16 just walking the streets.....all because they are striving for an "A" that will bring them a substantial monetary bonus.
