    Jonesboro School District strives to not only educate the child academically, but assist in the development of students as complete individuals. With that goal in mind, Jonesboro High School offers a variety of clubs to appeal to students with varied interests - ranging from clubs that are academically based, such as the foreign language clubs, to honorary organizations (Beta Club, Mu Alpha Theta, and National Honor Society), to leadership (Student Council, FBLA, etc.), sports ("J" Club and FCA), drug prevention (OUT OF THE DARK), to those clubs that are sponsored by civic organizations whose general intent is philanthropic. It is our belief that by participating in these organizations, students can develop both leadership and social skills, which will help them become happier, more productive citizens after they leave the Jonesboro School District.
