At Jimtown we also pride ourselves on the fact that our athletes are held to a high standard on the field of competition, but also in the classroom.  Education-Based athletics are by nature designed to be an extension of what is happening in the classroom.  Athletics are just one more tool which can be used to achieve the mission of education at Jimtown High School toward our code of Leadership-Integrity–Responsibility and Respect.

Here are some statistics that were tracked this season for our athletes at Jimtown.  You can see that the athleSpring 009tes at Jimtown perform very well also in the classroom and in fact many times do better than the students as a whole (including those who do not engage with extra-curricular activities at Jimtown)

  • A total of 194 students were on athletic rosters for the fall of 2019-2020   This is up 30 students from last fall
  • 147 of the 195 made the honor roll on the last grading period—which is a minimum of 3.0.  

This is a percentage of 75% of all fall athletes at Jimtown High School are on the honor roll. 

  • The average GPA of all 194 students who participated in athletics this fall:  3.43
  • The average GPA of all students at JHS including all those who did not participate in athletics: 3.0   
  • 3.0 represents a B- average.  Our athletes this fall performed at an average of 3.43 which is an A- average
  • None of this takes into account other forms of student engagement at Jimtown such as marching band, theater or clubs.
  • This also does not take into account student attendance and student discipline referrals.   Students who participate in our programs have a much lower absenteeism rate and much lower discipline referral rate than those that do not participate.
