Overview[edit]

Jordan High School comprises two campuses. The main campus serves students from grades 10-12 and select 9th graders in special programs. The second campus, known as the Jordan Freshman Academy, was constructed in 2001 and serves the incoming 9th grade students. Referred to as "The Freshman Academy" or "Baby Jordan" by students, it is located at the site of the former Dominguez Mercy Hospital at 171 W. Bort Street, Long Beach, CA. Jordan Freshmen Academy then had its final year for the group of 2011-2012. Starting from late 2012, Jordan Freshmen Academy became known as, "J Plus[+] or Jordan Plus[+]". Jordan Plus became the campus available to failing students, or students with a low GPA.
