Jackson Academy is without a doubt the number one school in Jackson, MS. Jackson Academy focuses on it students ability to succeed and prioritizes this over even a students speed at taking in information. They do whatever they can to insure that each student is showing their full potential as they grow closer to a college level. Because much of the school is student led with guidance of proctors and teachers, there are no real issues in the school because the students have implemented the majority of decisions. It is also a great school because they distribute your own device specifically for you that you may take home to enjoy and do your homework on. Currently every high school student is given an IPad or computer in order for them to excel technologically and academically

Jackson Academy has provided opportunities, challenges, and experiences I could not find anywhere else. The teachers at Jackson Academy are inexpressibly astounding and go out of their way to help students understand material. Not only do the teachers care for students’ education, they are also personally interested in students as they support us in sports, theater, college searches, and daily occurrences. The students also have an impactful voice on campus. If a large body of students notice a reasonable change that needs to occur, the staff will listen and has often helped make these changes happen. The only thing I wish to see changed about Jackson Academy is the push for students to consider schools outside of the Southeast. Although colleges in the Southeast are perfectly fine, many students do not even consider anywhere else becuase they are only encouraged to go to schools in the Southeast.
I love Jackson Academy! I have only attended Jackson Acedemy for 4 years but those have been the best 4 years of my life. I have made life long friends and have built life long relationships with multiple teachers and other faculty. One thing I would change about Jackson Acedemy is the schedule set up. I think we should convert to block schedule since that is more like a college environment.
