Jackson Independent Schools Reviews

1 review
Being such a small school, everyone knows each other. You really get the one on one time you need as a student here. The majority of the teachers and counselors really care about you academics and your path after graduation. Of course, things could be better. But that is the same for every school. We have amazing academics and test scores. At Jackson Independent, we have much better academics than sports. I must say our food is pretty gross though, other than pizza day.
