Jackson High School Reviews
The school is pretty diverse between black, white and mixed races as well as Hispanics. Not many of the Asian descent. School work is fairly simple. Some Teachers are very compassionate and caring for their students. Lots of clubs and Organizations, pretty hard to get into them though. The school itself is relatively small and the hallways are often very crowded. The faculty is not the best but I guess they try. Not much bullying from my perspective but there are cliques and groups so there could be. Overall Jackson High isnt my favorite place but I guess it is what you make of it. Just not for me Gladly I graduate very soon.
What I like about Jackson High School is the feeling of family. Being the high school of such a small town means that most people know just about everybody else. That is what results in the sense of togetherness and unity you'll find among students and staff alike. The things I'd like to see improve would be more resources and funding, as a lot of teachers have to take out of their own pockets for the lessons they teach. Being a teacher is an extracurricular activity in its own right, and I'd like to see administration help out teachers more.
Being at Jackson High School offered many opportunities I thought I'd never have. Our student body are very close and the administrators are willing to listen to what the students have to say. We have free breakfast and lunch, although the food they serve could be better it's okay for it to be free. I wish we could have a more options when it come to the clubs and activities but we do have fun with the activities we do have. Overall it's a pretty good school to attend.
