H. Handy, Principal

Congratulations to the Advanced Placement students and teachers at Jenkins High School!

Jenkins High School being named an AP Honor School is a testament to the extraordinary efforts and hard work from our students and teachers. Their dedication and drive to excel, especially during a global pandemic and full virtual platform, reflects their passion for learning and willingness to overcome obstacles. AP classes and AP testing conducting completely on-line was a new process for all involved. Not only does this recognition reflect the academic strengths of our students, it is a tremendous endorsement of the aspirations and high expectations and support from our parents. I am extremely proud of our students and the dedication they have shown.

Wednesdays are a regular school day now!

Based on the guidelines for the 3/2 model, Wednesdays are now a regular school day. Students must sign in to their classes at the scheduled times. Attendance counts!

Athletic Updates

Athletics Update Feb. 28, 2021

The Warriors basketball seasons came to an end this week in the first round of the GHSA State Tournament. The Lady Warriors came up short against a scrappy Kendrick team, while the Warriors found themselves on the bad end of a last second call at Hardaway. Warrior seniors Jerrell Floyd, Chuck Williams, & Antanez McGirt led a comeback and maintained the lead for the last 15 minutes of the game before an unfortunate series of events in the last three seconds ended the season. Both Warrior teams played well in the State Tournament. Congratulations and a huge ‘thank you’ to Coach Brooker and Coach Hines for leading our Warriors to successful seasons and teaching important life lessons to our student athletes.
