My experience at East Jackson is unexplainable. Our community serves as one. There has been many times where families have gone through tough times and our entire community comes together to help each other out, such as spaghetti dinners, cancer awareness games, and free caring dinners. I love that everyone offers a helping hand. Teachers are always willing to stay after to help students with their work and care so much about the students. The staff at East Jackson always puts in the extra work to help our school succeed. Trojans! Together We Thrive!

I am only just begun, but my experience has been good. The format has taken me a little while to get used to, but I have been able to complete all of my assignments with plenty of time left before the due date. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that the modules are locked and you can’t work ahead.
The only thing good about East Jackson is the support of its tight-knit community. However, if you are not an active part of the community, you will feel like an outcast. East Jackson tries really hard to improve and had a lot of occurrences that left it struggling to recover. It lacks the much-needed aid and enthusiasm in the arts department. Whatever is left of the music, art, and theater departments are hanging on a thread. It also lacks advanced classes. The school only offers 2 AP classes. I later found out after graduating that most schools usually offer around 4 or 5. The school needs to offer more classes in general, and I realized how much I missed out on when talking to people who graduated from other schools. While it needs students to improve and grow, I suggest going to another school if you want to actually gain anything out of high school beyond being part of a supportive community.
