There are some good teachers here, but not enough of them to outweigh the rest of the problems. The school lacks communication to parents and students. The rules and expectations change at the drop of a hat without warning. And if the student doesn't fit their mold, they do not want to deal with them. ...  Read more

Teachers are terrible, district is terrible, there is nothing good at all about this school. Academically, they are extremely far behind. They have no control over the kids.

This school has one of the worst sports programs available. The coaches constantly change and none of them have a passion for the sport they are coaching. They are only doing it for the extra $$.

I graduated from the 'excellent' class of 2006. One thing I can say about Jacobs is if you're an honors student, it's very competitive. However, I went to college expecting to be completely overwhelmed and instead it was a 'this is it?' type feeling...I was prepared amazingly well. I participated ...  Read more

Jacobs is a great school! I graduated in 2006 along side a superior senior class. A few of us were accepted into top ten universities including Harvard, Northwestern, and Berkeley. I went to Berkeley and will be graduating this May! Thanks Jacobs!

My son graduated from Jacobs and now my daughter is a freshman there. I love the school and teachers. Some teachers are very strict but with them you learn most. My kids have only good things to say about the school and all teachers.

I go to jacobs and love it! teachers are excellent and always happy to help. There are many extra-curricular activities, and very nice people. I would hate to go to any other high school.
