Jackson County High School Reviews
The best thing about going to a school like JCHS is the closeness of your fellow students. Many complaints that I often heard during my four years included unfair dresscodes, some teachers whose teaching methods were not satisfactory for many, and lack of fun or entertaining opportunities. Regardless, I think my experience was average here.
Some teachers genuinely care and want to help you in any way possible, while others, as I've seen, only seem to care about state scores. One even saying to give students detentions and not informing them? Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they have to tell the student if they have a detention? If not, how do they expect it to be served. So much goes on between students that seem to just fly pass some teachers' heads, and with the lunch staff, when called about an allergy, it took threatening to go to court to conform to a food allergy. Genuinely, as I'm sure most students are, I just can't wait to graduate and get out of this school.
Our school is small so there is more one-on-one interactions. The main problem is that we don't have the resources or opportunities that other schools have. Our county is not big on funding the school with important things. Instead, it is things that sit and collect dust. We also attend school in a building that is almost falling apart. It is not very safe and healthy for us to be there.
