I brought my daughter to jenks in hope of obtaining a strong education in hopes of her being college ready. the Jenks Hs provided more than my words can say. the time an effort that was put into my daughter still to this day amazes me. my daughter is set to attend Johns Hopkins university this up coming year and her future is unlimited thanks to the educational foundation Jenks Hs has given her. the social and economical diversity of the school, with kids from other countries the campus of Jenks reflects the images our children will hopefully see in college. please visit the school if you are planning to be in this area, and i am sure you will be amazed at the standards our school has set.

Our last child of four is graduating from Jenks High School this year. Jenks Public Schools is not perfect, but is the best quality public school in the State of Oklahoma without a doubt. In most cases it prepares its students better for college than the privates. Jenks Public Schools was the right choice for our family because it pushes its students to be successful in all areas academically, athletically and in the arts.

I am a parent and I am not too happy with the Jenks West school district. Employees are very arrogant, they feel very entitled, take a lot of time off. I think they have good results but they do not take into account that their pupils may also be different than other districts.

I'm going to break down the ratings of how I think this school is. I post this as a recent graduate from here; Pre-AP/AP Classes: 5/5 Out of all the schools in Oklahoma, I would say JHS possesses one of the best AP Programs in the state. If you or your child attends this school, invest in taking some AP courses. If not, in my opinion, you're really wasting your time here. The program helps assimilate you into college, if just by a little bit. Normal Classes: 2.5-3/5 Regular classes here are a mixed bag. Depending on the teacher, you can either have a great year, or a horrible one. I would say a large part of it depends on student participation, and students not in the AP program tend to be very apathetic... Social Life: 3-4/5 Jenks is very clique-y, but what high school isn't? It took me a while to find my place here, but when I did, I enjoyed my time at school. Administration: 3.5/5 Depending on the individual, you'll either have a very nice person helping you, or the most irritated one ever. Most of the administrative staff is nice, so long as you're smart enough not break the rules every week. If you're a one or two time offender a year, you'll usually get off easy.

I have gone to Jenks all the way through Pre-K. Jenks has many incredible academic opportunities. By taking a test in 5th grade and passing, students can be taking Calculus their Sophomore year. Jenks does spend a lot of money on football, but football makes a lot of money for the school from ticket sales. Jenks has always been an incredible school

Jenks School system has changed for the worse over the years. Had one daughter graduate in 2005 and the school and teachers were easy to get along with and would help meet your needs. Like transferring out of class to another teacher due to teaching habits/skills. My second daughter was to be put in afterschool math in 5th grade year. She made mention noone could help her with the math made inquiry about it, with no result end of that school year, was visiting with another frustrated parent, teacher over hears conversation and says, my daughter was supposed to be in her class but some how was posted to just afterhour study hall, and now in 9th grade tried to transfer her out of a poor teaching english class teacher bounces around to differnent concepts, writes over top of other words, so now you can't make them out. etc... Three meetings never able to transfer , lost okpromise tuition, due to grades and all this daughter did was study and do homework no extra activities or going out because I stressed she could not do anything if she was below 2.5 grade average. But she scores above average on state tests in english and is failing in her english, go to .BIXBY,GLENPOOL,SKIATOOK

One, if not number one, of the best public schools in the US - hands down!

Some of the negative reviews floor me. I was a Jenks lifer, but I did not come from money, never played a sport, and never had an issue with drugs or alcohol. The school does not dictate your social "role", nor does it care more about athletics than academics. Just look at the standardized test scores and you'll realize that the few and far between, on this site, do not represent the whole when it comes to the teachers, students, or staff. Now that my wife and I are moving back to Tulsa, we are looking at buying a house in the Jenks district as our first criteria. If you or your kids do not thrive with amazing teachers, mentors, and extra-curricular anything then feel free to transfer. I would love for my kids to take their place.

The high school staff encourages drama and bullying. The staff tends to look the other way as your child gets picked on. If you appeal any disciplinary decision from your child s self defense then they will humor you at the meeting and cause more anxiety to your child by making him feel ashamed. If your child is not aggressive or a have personality type A, then you should expect your child to suffer bouts of anxiety and depression by his/her senior year. My child used to eat lunch in the restroom stall to escape the verbal abuse

I am currently a sophomore in Jenks and have been going here since Pre-K. The school focuses and appreciates only students with a lot of money, talent, and straight A's. The standards for students are nearly impossible, everything is expected to be perfect and there is no leniency for anyone who does not meet the standards. Instead of investing their money in the classroom and students, they spend all their money on extracurricular activities and sports. The school is highly evasive with both parents and students life's, and are rare to give anyone a break. It is extremely easy to feel left out, because Jenks is one of the worst schools you will ever find when it comes to cliques. The classes are usually never entirely free, sometimes far from it. Vocal is $100 per semester, with a $100 dress and $100 t-shirt. Teachers are very careless and insensitive to students needs, if you have to go to the nurse, forget it. Bathroom, forget it. Everything comes with a catch, and faculty members worry way too much about small things such as cell phones and dress code. I got 4 hour long detentions for not being able to afford a temporary id. I wouldn't recommend Jenks for the average teenager.

I LOVE Jenks! Jenks PS is my first experience with a public school and they are not perfect but overall they have the most fantastic academic program, athletics, and opportunities for kids to join clubs and other activities. To say you MUST have money to go there is untrue. Our family doesn't and we have never felt less worthy to be there. They have many programs to assist families who want to be involved. For those complainers: go make a positive difference by volunteering there. Help them help your kids.
