Jackson Public School District Reviews
With Jackson Public School, I loved how teachers were willing to form valuable relationships with students and parents. I also loved how some of the administrators were able to keep up with the students and help students that were having a hard time. The parent-involvement throughout with the athletic department is extraordinary. Some things Jackson Public Schools can improve their facilities and resources throughout each school in the district. The district could also work on hiring qualified leadership. They could also try and get the community involved a lot more. The district could also implement financial resources to enhance school facilities.
I attend jim hill high school, one of the schools in JPS. The school is honestly unsafe for learning. There’s ceiling tiles missing, wires hanging from the ceiling, and mold in the air vents. And that’s not even half! Also, the food is disgusting! If it isn’t cold then it’s not even worth eating and that’s my honest opinion. The only good thing about jim hill is the fact that the extra curricular activities are great, coming from someone who participates in one.
JPS school district is an amazing place for children to learn and grow! Not only is there an immense amount of academic opportunities such as: 18 AP classes offered; numerous honor classes; and dual-enrollment opportunities, but the large exposure to a great deal of diversity really prepares the children for the real world and creates an outstanding learning environment.
