Jackson County Schools Reviews

Jackson County is a very small and rural school. The teachers are very involved in student life. There are always people willing to help however for the students who aren't sure who to ask or where to start there is very little guidance. Administration was not up to par. They focus on the wrong issues at the school and don't handle the true structural issues at the school such as staff that is too personal with students or feel that they are in control of students every decision. There is little room to grow as a person due to the immense judgement constantly surrounding the school's atmosphere. The sports programs were a great stress relief to the daily routine at the school however, funding was never handled well and some coaches were a little power driven as well. Overall, there are better schools to have graduated from but also worse.

I had an overall great experience. If I could go back in time, I would go back and do it again because of the great memories I received from my school. The school did a great job preparing students for all kinds of things such as tests and college. They provided every student with technology and books that they needed in order to exceed in classes and responsibility expected of them. Every student had a fair opportunity to bring out their creativeness in projects or daily activities. Jackson County Comprehensive High School is a fantastic environment for all students in every aspect and I highly recommend it to all.
The schools overall have great staff members willing to work with students. They do offer multiple sports such as cheer leading, football, soccer, and baseball ,but coaches are changed often. I do love the schools for organization and cleanliness. However the overall environment could be better updated in technology. They do have great extra activities and clubs that fit for almost every student from FFA, DECA, and chess club. My overall experience here was wonderful from teachers to my fellow students. Of course everyone's experience will be different, but hopefully good. I would recommend this school system to any family looking for great education and school experience.
