I would like to see more options for smaller sports -facilities, support and off hour options. Use of fields for community use during off seasons. ROTC at Vancleave so the cadets can get the full experience and hours like others do. More collaboration between groups and community organizations.

The high school admin is great! Lots of new resources and positive environment. Love our small town and the amazing people who help us grow into great adults.

Jackson County School District is always striving to be on top. I've had a pleasant experience in my years of being a part of the Jackson County School District. The teachers are excellent in making sure students are ready to continue in their lives, and the administrators and heads of the district make sure that each and every student is the best that he or she can be. They work hard to make school seem like a home for the students working towards their future. I am fond of my school district.
These community of people helped during a time that was really important in my life. It helped reiterate my life on my studies becoming more focused on school. This school district is very focused on helping the kids of their community to be successful and to become something. They do many preps for college they introduce students to workshops outside of school that not only help them with their ACT but getting to college also and finding out what works for them. The students are all very close knit and have grown up with each other, the facility is very good with handling the repercussion aren’t so harsh where they will be excluded from their education but enough to where they learn their lesson and the incident isn’t to ever happen again. This is a great school district and it’s a great for any parent who would be looking for a good school for their child.
