I attended Andrew Jackson High School for my entire educational experience, and it has helped to shape me into the determined and knowledgeable student I am today. I have found teachers whose sole focus is to nurture me and that care for my future even more than my parents. However, this school is particularly known for its arts focus program. I was a part of the visual arts aspect of this program, and I continued with it to further my skills and love for my talent. And although it has brought me great satisfaction, I wish there was more opportunities for deeper interaction with my talent, as the focus classes were seemingly just regular arts classes with a more elaborate name. However, this school has brought me nothing but success in my academics and otherwise, and, given the surrounding options of this area, I wouldn’t choose to have attended anywhere else.

I like the environment in which I’m given to learn. I would like to see however more of a focus put on seniors with the application process for colleges, scholarships. I wish we had a home economics class. That would have been very helpful since I’ll be living in my own pretty much within the next few months. I also wish the girls could wear shorts but I know a bunch o people would cross the line so I could understand that not changing. Overall, I just think that the teachers should be more involved in the students’ lives and get to know each of them personally before they attempt to teach them something. After all, teachers can always learn new things too.
I have to say that Andrew Jackson has such a welcoming atmosphere that resonates from the students, faculty and staff. The children are passionate about what they do and are remarkably talented. The custodians keep the school super clean and I've never had complaints about security or cleanliness.
