Jackson County High School has rough patches, but overall the school compensates for the negative aspects with many things. Despite some of the students being not so friendly, the teachers make most students feel welcome and safe.
The school lunches were not very good. I most all of my teachers there, as they were very nice and really seemed to care about your academic accomplishments as well as your person.
