School needs an enema! With a high profile military base and jc being a "military town" you would think the school would have a higher rating than a 3; USD 475 even gets federal money from the federal government to run this school district! From students at the freshman success academy hiding marijuana in the neighborhood around the FSA during their morning walk to school, to the faculty members at the high school that try and be "friends" with their students instead of being an authority figure and being a teacher/instructor!! Yeah, you read it correctly, these 9th graders are hiding marijuana in neighborhood sheds in order to go (after meeting up with their school friends at school in the mornings, they then leave school grounds) and go smoke marijuana together!! I know this to be 100% fully true. This kind of behavior seems to be perpetrated by a certain group of individuals who seem to prey on the weaker students and influence them with unreasonable amounts of peer pressure! Better watch and keep tabs on your children! But, the students definitely reflect their parents that live in the community hood of JC.
