I have not felt that I have been active enough in extracurricular activities, and that is one of my biggest regrets from high school. There are so many clubs and organizations available to students; however, my main criticism is that there is not enough information being given to the student body about the different clubs and what they are or when they meet. Announcing these over the PA system is very ineffective, since a lot of the classes don't pay attention to the announcements. Overall, there are great clubs and organizations (including Latino club, French/German club, art club, National Honors Society, DECA, spoken word, orchestra club, ASL, etc.), I just wish they were publicized more so more students could know about them and join them!

The staff challenges the students to work hard and to go above and beyond their current understandings. It is a very nice school but with most schools there's some problems with fundings for necessities like pluming, new equipment, etc. The district itself needs to fund these a little better or at least re-do the school itself. It's way over capacity (student wise) from all the new apartments and cramped houses being built. Destroying wildlife for greed which effects everyone negatively in some way. Back to school, since the student-teacher ratio is not ideal, the students have a far less chance of learning new material properly. Besides that, it's pretty good.
Overall I have had a good experience at Jackson Highschool. The teachers at this school are all very kind, they care about helping their students learn, and they have prepared me for what challenges I might face in college. While attending this school, I have learned that putting in your best effort will help you suceed. I have learned that you do not need to know the answer to every question, the only thing that is important is that you try your best. One way that we could improve this school would be adding some more engaging activities throughout the year. Adding some more events would help students feel more involved at school and they would look forward to attending.
