the teachers were understanding and helped in whatever way they were able to!! although the students had very bad attitudes toward staff and other students !!
JCHS is a small town school . There are not many students , and most of the parents work out of town. They have progressed somewhat through the years. I was pretty well satisfied with the way the school handled the Covid 19 pandemic. The staff are a little behind with the Senior class. I missed some college scholarships, that were available, but now have passed my window of opportunity. All in all, it has been a good learning experience for me.
JCHS is wonderful in preparing students for college and community college. The entire school system from Elementary to High School prepares each individual student based upon their specific needs. The school system has options for learning trades, dual classes, and a variety of stem class options. These classes can often give you opportunities to graduate high school with certificates and offer college classes credits.
With my experience with Jackson County High School, I enjoyed how friendly the staff here is. Most of the faculty always had a smile on their face. Most importantly they want the best for the students.
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.
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.
Let me start off by saying this; I appreciate my school very much! My teachers are absolutely wonderful educators and deserve a hefty raise for how much they care for their students and lessons. The administration is so-so and definitely could give teachers more of the support that they need. Our maintenance and cafeteria staff always have a smile on their face and happy to help at any time. In other words, the staff is terrific. Unfortunately, the school’s culture is toxic and complacent. The students here have such an unwillingness to learn and refuse to put forth any effort into school. Although this is not true of everyone, this problem is rampant throughout the campus and leaves a lot of the teachers I have spoken to feeling frustrated.
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.
The teachers at this school are fun and outgoing.
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.
There wasn't much room to excel, even in honors.
