Jackson High School Reviews
My experience at Jackson High School was one that I would go back redo over again! Being in a school, that was active in the community aas well as with the student body is an experience every child should get while in high school. From the amount of work and to the caring teachers, JAckson High prepared me for college. The best part about JHS was the school spirit that is showed, especially during football season. Jackson High has been a continuous growing family and I'm glad that I coud be a part of that. Even though all days were not a walk through park, I wouldn't trade being an alumna of Jackson High for anything.
I enjoyed sports. I enjoyed the games and pep rallies! Some of the teachers taught you stuff to be college ready. Then others just teach to be teaching. We learn a lot of different stuff, from the core class too elective classes. We had so many different teachers from 9th to 12th grade. The food wasn't hitting on nothing. We done had two different principles since I been at the school.
These past four years, Jackson High School has showed good and bad times but for the most part they've been good. The good times are the pep rallies, being a member of the cheer team and the other organizations, and football games. The bad times is the A/C not working and the school lunch. Thankfully those both will be changed this year. If I could start over, I definitely would!
