East Jackson has a very tight knit community. Since Middle School I've been taught to be part of the community. Everyone generally gets along with one another, there are very few fights, and everyone knows everyone else. Learning is easy, and it's easy to get help. Some things the school does are unfair, for example issues with taking online classes and GPA, or not having classes that are advanced enough for some students.

A few of the teachers are very good and dedicated to their jobs, and some are not very invested. Unfortunately, many of them are retiring or getting ready to retire. The student body seems to become more disrespectful every year.
East Jackson High School is an interesting one. Everyone complains about how it operates, but no one does anything to change it. I've done card drives for the Meals On Wheels program, hoping to spark something but no one participated. I ended up making 200+ cards. School elections are based on popularity and the people are quite close minded. However, I have met some of my favorite teachers at this school, and they have inspired me.
