A sincere welcome is extended to you by the entire faculty and staff of the Jonesboro School District. Jonesboro is well known and admired for the quality of its education. Because of this, our district has won the Occasions Magazine Readers' Choice, "Best Public School District" award for 8 years in a row. We also received numerous 2019 Readers' Choice awards from the NEA Kids' Directory: Best Public School District (3rd year in a row); Best PreK Program, Best After School Program and Best Summer Care Program (Cane Academy). Our school district is comprised of the 2 Jonesboro Pre-K Centers, Jonesboro Kindergarten Center, 5 Magnet elementaries, 2 junior highs and The Academies at Jonesboro High School. We also partner with the NEA Career/Technical Center and the SUCCESS Achievement  Academy. In the Jonesboro District, Excellence is our standard – not our goal – for every child. We encourage all parents and guardians to get involved and be an active part of their child’s education. Educating our students has always been and will continue to be a collaborative effort between school and home. Stay connected with JPS on a daily basis through our website.
