Zero Tolerance, the new meaning of "Excellence in Education"

Jonesboro High school is known locally, regionally, and state wide for its excellent preparation of students academically for the future successes professionally. The committee's goal was to aligned with the same purpose or merging the discipline of training students in character, conduct, and dress to better complete the task of properly training our students for future roles in the professional workplace. Therefore, the following goals set by the committee are to be initiated during the 2005-2006 school year. Please read these carefully and help your student to be aware of these goals and the significance of partnering with Jonesboro High School for the purpose of better completing the concept of excellence in education.
