It's a great school. On top of that, the academics are a bit beyond average. They have plenty of AP classes. Most teachers are helpful; a few teachers are mean, but what are we going to do. The counselors are extremely helpful. The resources staff are amazing (librarian, counselors, ASB activities coordinator, etc.). If you need any "beyond the high school" help (college, careers, etc.), these guys are great!

Henry M Jackson is a very diverse, inclusive environment that supports the growth and education of all. There are numerous clubs, academic interests, and athletic activities that contribute to the atmosphere. I am personally involved in the Drumline, Theatre Society, and HOSA club. There are opportunities for individuals to showcase their art and academic work throughout the year through competitions, and showcases, as well as opportunities for these students to reach out to other institutions and regions to showcase their work and talents. The teachers, administrators, and counselors go above and beyond to meet the needs of each student at Jackson. Many teachers also facilitate during and after school times where students can come and be supported with school work, taking breaks when needed, and just be all around supported. Overall, Henry M Jackson High School is ranked one of the best schools in Washington state, and for good reason.
Henry M. Jackson High School is highly diverse and includes a community of welcoming and supportive students and staff. Jackson High School includes a variety of clubs, athletics, and programs that include students of all demographics and connect them to their interests. I feel extremely connected to both the students and teachers that I have met and I have enjoyed my time participating in multiple clubs and sports. Although my school features such a large variety of clubs, I wish that all clubs were increasingly advertised to students and information about clubs were more available so that more students could participate and find activities that match their interests.
