Jackson County High School Reviews
Rating 3.06 out of 5 65 reviews
I like the music stuff, probably because I am in the band. Right now is confusing because of all the COVID 19 stuff so it is a little different. This is my first year in high school and it is crazy. I am pretty sure it would be easier without COVID 19.
Not the best school I’ve been to but not the worst. The teachers, administration and staff are all very friendly and genuinely care about the students.
This school is located in a small community, where most people know most everyone. The school is small enough to get to know students, but still large enough to select some of your own classes. There are a few things that need changing, like the breakfast and lunch served, as well as the serving portions. It is good in that all students currently receive free meals, but the serving sizes (like only 4 chicken nuggets) just is not enough to be considered a meal for high school students. The school is very family oriented, and most of the teachers and administrators will help students in any way they possibly can.
It is a small town school that is only concerned with football and girls basketball. I had select few teachers that actually cared about each students'success and future. Most teachers socialized more than teaching, and assigned busy work.
One thing I love about my school is how close all the students and teachers become. Since it is a small school, most of us have the same classes together. The teachers also are able to have one on one time with most students who need it. My school experience here has overall been great. I have made many memories with my friends here and have gotten to know many of my teachers on another level than I would at a larger school since most of them are sports coaches and club sponsor. The teachers get to know you on a personal level; this has helped me a lot when it comes to learning in the classroom because it doesn't seem like the teachers are teaching as much as they are trying to help guide you throughout life.
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.
There is not much to choose from. It's limited.
I loved being in a small school, it helped me.
We do not have anything much. If there is a club, the same people in it are the same in another club.
If I could go back, I'd find a different school. No one tries to help us succeed unless we are basketball players.
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.
This school was small, but the teachers cared.
I am doing well in college. So in my opinion this school helped just as much as any other school I could have gone to.
The academics for this school are sorta poor. There aren't many exciting electives to take or anything.
I wasn't satisfied with the lunched at this school many times.
The involvement of these people is very average for a school.
