Jackson Public Schools Reviews
While I love the academic opportunities and the diversity of the school, I have found communication with administrators and the college resource advisor frustrating. I have received conflicting or inaccurate information related to college and scholarship opportunities. The school is also relatively cliquey with administrators showing favoritism to some of the groups. The cafeteria is also very overwhelming because of how large the school is. Due to that, I don’t go down there anymore and I stay in a teacher’s classroom for lunch. Within the classroom, however, I have found many trusted adults that have helped me in every step as I prepare for college. Once you have found your people, Jackson High can be a great place to learn and grow.
One thing I have always loved about Jackson Public Schools is the diversity. There’s such a huge variety of different kinds of people and cultures and it makes the environment more comfortable, I think. Also I believe that academically JPS is much easier than others schools in my opinion, the teachers are very caring and really try to make sure every student understands.
JPS has wonderful academic, extracurricular, and social activities. The school offers more than 10 AP courses, as well as numerous honors and trade skill classes. There are even co-taught and lift classes for students that struggle significantly. There is a pleothora of extracurricular activities, including sports, theatre, politics, etc. However, administration is terrible. Issues like bullying are not addressed whatsoever, -and the victim is constantly accused of starting the problem. They do not attempt to address and fix the negatives; they only highlight the positives, thus inhibiting the opportunity to grow.
