Jackson R-II School District Reviews

I first moved to Jackson, Missouri from a neighboring town called Cape Girardeau, only about twenty minutes away. Moving at the age eight, to a whole new schooling environment, was going to be challenge. I remember my first day of second grade at Jackson was too good to be true. I got a class with, still to this day, my two best friends that I will be graduating with this next year. My teacher, Mrs. Brazil, even gave out snacks to kids who did not eat breakfast or got hungry during the day. How could school get any better than that!From that day on I realized how much teacher actually care about the kids in their class at the Jackson School district. Now that I'm at my last year of high still to this day teacher still care for their students. For me, teachers have been more than willing to stay with me after school or even in the morning to make sure I know the material that they are teaching. Because of this I have made good grades and able to go to college.

I've attended Jackson schools all of my life and have recently graduated. Jackson schools have amazing staff and amazing campuses. The school spirit is awesome and the student body is truly one of a kind. The academics at Jackson are superb. The teachers at Jackson aren't there just to teach, they really strive for overall student success!
I liked that my school district encouraged academic excellence and when I graduated I felt I had the world at my fingertips. Issues I was not so happy with were the lacking sex education which promoted ignorance and stigma around the topic. I also do not appreciate the mascot "Jackson Indians". It was impossible to be proud of that, especially since our town was named for Andrew Jackson. The irony is unfortunate and I think the mascot should be changed.
