Generally speaking, Jackson is a pretty okay place. I feel safe there and I’m challenged by my teachers. I’ve never had a teacher I would describe as “bad” but I’m aware of friends who have had some pretty awful experiences. Counselors do their best, but it’s hard for requests to be filled with such a huge student body. Sometimes students are (unintentionally or not) flatout ignored. The principal, however, is amazing and does his best to get to know every student. He even went out of his way to help our club out, and I’m forever grateful for him for that. Overall, not bad, but they don’t focus much on actually helping kids be ready for college, more just getting them out the door.

Henry M. Jackson has some of the nicest teachers and students that I have. I am able to feel comfortable and at ease when I am at school. Although this is a general statement, there are some exceptions. A few teachers treat students with disrespect and often use their authority in a wrongful manner. Due to this, many students also act up towards teachers, even to those that are innocent. I want to see change within the relationship between student body and staff, where there is respect and understanding. This will not only benefit the relationships but will in turn increase factors such as school spirit, participation in events, and even raise grades.
Henry M. Jackson High School has great students but not so great teachers. Most teachers aren't very qualified, especially in AP classes, but there ARE a few that are great. We do have really good athletics, with multiple state championships from multiple years, in multiple sports. The food is pretty good actually. School starts way too early. We have talented arts students, so we are good in that area but the teachers are not good. However, we are a pretty safe school and many people and teachers are accepting of ALL people which is very important in contributing to a safe environment. We have many clubs, which many students participate in.
