My experience at East Jackson Comprehensive High School as been very enjoyable. The staff is so welcoming and very kind. Most teachers are very understanding and try to make your life easier and not harder. My coaches at EJCHS have all been very supportive throughout the years. The teachers, administration, and coaches at my school have shaped me into the person I am today and have shown me what it means to work hard!

East Jackson Comprehensive High School is a great school! There are plenty of opportunities to get involved and excel. I am involved in four clubs and two leadership teams, so I see multiple sides of the school. There is a diverse population within the school and everyone is accepted. They care about the community and strive to improve the education in and out of the school. It could use some better opportunities within the STEM fields, but overall a great school!
East Jackson Comprehensive High School is an above average, public school located in Commerce, Georgia. Student's are able to take honors classes, advanced placement classes, and opportunities to take dual enrollment classes to kick start your college career. While at East Jackson Comprehensive High School, I took honors classes, advanced placement classes, and dual enrollment classes for free. After I graduated, I was able to go into college with 18 credit hours. This helped me greatly when I went to college because I was already ahead when I started and I had some college experience under my belt. Without those dual enrollment classes, I may not have been prepared for the expectations in college.
