Jackson High School Reviews
I enjoyed my experience at Jackson High. They have many AP Classes offered, which I took opportunity of. Most teachers are fantastic, with the exception of a few duds. Extracurriculars are varied and there’s something for everyone. There’s always an event taking place. The only thing I would like to see changed is decreased gender discrimination through dress code, better communication with divorced parents, fairer punishments for children of school board members, and opportunity to evaluate/review teachers.
My experience with Jackson High school has been phenomenal. The students and teachers are very welcoming and supportive. Most teachers try to challenge their students and make personal connections with them. The diversity of the school is beautiful and is one of my favorite parts about the school. The sports and extracurricular activities led me to meet so many amazing people. The school is big and diverse, so you have to like a large school if you wanted to go. But it’s well worth trying it out.
High school is what you make it. Teachers I've personally had were great and the ones that weren't you don't have to worry too much about. The opportunities are pretty much endless with this school, we're lucky to have all the options for classes that we have and I loved a lot of the classes I took. But by junior year I took all the electives I wanted to take so I opted to go Career Center. But many are happy and successful while staying at the main school. I was never active with any club or activities but if you don't find something you like you can always start your own club which friends have done as well. The high school is a little unorganized at times which can be a little frustrating but there's more important things in life. For the most part the school is safe and diverse, we're a little wild but sometimes that can be good.
