Well it's actually called Jackson Central Merry-Early College High School. The faculty and staff have been very supportive with making sure we are excelling in academics. They have also made sure that students are enrolled in classes at Jackson State Community College.

Classes offered in medical program were great!
At JCM, I have met friends that I will have for a lifetime. This school has taught me a life lesson. It has taught me to apply myself and never say, "I can't". I can't is not even in my vocabulary because I believe in myself. There is a lot of hype about the school that I attend but you would have to attend to see what I see. As i am writing this, our school system is fighting to close our school. They want to shut us down because they feel like the student are not capable of learning and we do not care. I would hate to see such a historical school waste away.At Jackson-Central Merry, the one thing you can say about us is that we are a family. Our teachers care about what happens to us and they care about our grades. They care because the want us to overcome adversity. I know teachers don't get paid to care but these teacher take their job seriously. I don't regret a single day at this because JCM is my home. I know that when I graduate in the year of 2016, I will be well prepared for college.
