“Open the House:” JHS Academies Welcome Guests to New Building

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) – Open the roof and open the doors, the community was welcomed inside the new Academies of Jonesboro high school on Thursday.

Guests got to see several new additions up close, including 20 new classrooms, renovations to existing classrooms, expanded cafeteria space, and even upgrades to the Career and Technology Center.

The school has also emphasized its three academies: the Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, the Academy of Business, Communication Arts and Law and the Academy health and social services.

Dr. Brad Faught, the school’s executive director and alumnus, said it was the finest building in northeast Arkansas.

“We work here every day. We are lucky. Our children are lucky to go to school here,” Faught said. “I have my 40th class reunion this year and can’t wait to show my friends the changes at Jonesboro High School and all the progress and good things that are happening.”

The tours were led mostly by students, including the senior, Isabella Williams.

She said her favorite addition is having more space throughout the school and the new classrooms on the third floor.

“I didn’t think we’d be able to see it until after I graduated, but I’m so grateful to be able to use the new classrooms,” Williams said.
