Jackson County Schools Reviews

Jackson County Schools is the place I would take my children to learn. They provide excellent service to their students, faculty, and parents. The school's facilities are in need of some work, but overall very clean and well kept. The school's cafeteria food choices are not what the kids want I'm afraid, but with a little work the cafeteria's will be streamung with children who will actually want their food.

I like that each school feels like a family. The faculty goes above and beyond for the students and their families. The faculty keeps everyone in the know about what is going on and when it is going to happen. The teachers and administrators love each child as their own and are sure to show it as well.
Jackson County schools are very good at preparing students for college or technical jobs. Due to lack of funds they may fall behind in having some resources like larger schools. However, the staff make up for this by caring for each student and their success.
