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.

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.
Jackson County has good schools for a small area, but they have some really weak schools also. They used to have the career tech school in our state, but much like everything else they have allowed politics and nepotism to ruin it. I teach at a college and we don't even look at their students anymore because of how drastically bad the quality of education has gotten.
