I like it a lot it is easy to find people that you have things in common with. You get to know people from different back grounds and different ways of life. This school helped me grow into the person I am today and I am forever grateful

I like that there are a few nice, very helpful REAL teachers. I will say I dislike very much about the school. The teachers are extremely strict and do not help us students at all, the school does not spend their money wisely, and the students are not nice-very rude people.
I love the diversity inside of the school and all the opportunities they give us students. I appreciate the staff for trying as hard as they do to provide the best for all students.
I liked that when you go to this school, it actually feels like genuinely like one. And plus, the environment seems nice as well. But in all seriousness, at most, this school is about average. I liked it here, but is average.
Jackson High School has been excellent for me to pursue my educational career at through my senior year. The staff is always willing to give a helping hand, and the diversity in the school is incredible. The opportunities we are provided with are endless. I could recommend Jackson High and JPS to anyone.
Overall pretty good experience, however the dress code regulations in my opinion are a little much. The teachers for the most part are kind and are willing to help.
Jackson High School is the epicenter of educational excellence in a disadvantaged society. Minorities are provided with resources, families are heeded of their financial status, and administration offer a great educational experience to all students. However, safety is in concern at Jackson High School. But, security guards and safety precautions have been taken ever since the last incident. In conclusion, Jackson High is a place for educational excellence.
Jackson High School has helped me become the person I am today! The school system is amazing and whenever there are a few bumps in the road they always seem to quickly find a solution! However if I were to have one negative comment it is that the new student parking lot is not at all feasible with the students needs, there's not enough parking for the one hundred plus students to accommodate.
Jackson High School consisted of numerous AP courses, subpar counselors and some teachers whom had no business teaching. However, there were also teachers such as Micheal Whittaker that truly cared about their students and wanted them to succeed. Overall my experience at Jackson High School was subpar.
Jackson High is a diverse school with open minded students. The teachers are amazing at connecting with students and it’s overall a great place to be
Jackson High School has education for everyone which is one thing I love about the school. I am able to challenge myself by taking Advanced Placement courses and a large variety of extra curricular activities. The teachers at our school for the most part are wonderful but if I could change anything about the school it would be administration. Our administration has recently gone through many changes, and in my opinion these changes have not been beneficial. Jackson High consist of people among all levels of education. Our administration tends to target the higher level students when they could be spending their time with the students that actually need the necessary help to graduate and continue their life through post-secondary schooling.
Jackson High School was full of life and glee . It was diverse enough to learn different languages , traditions, cultures and values . Our sports administration was amazing and they even provided tutors after school . Everything about JHS set its students up for success . I have the highest most respect for Jackson public school system.
Jackson High School is a great school with teachers always willing to help you, diverse students, and a huge variety of courses to choose from that suit your interests. Jackson High offers endless opportunities, however it doesn't offer everything therefore I would like to see more chances for independent study hours. You can take an independent study hour, but based on which teacher you choose as your mentor, you have to go just as they plan it out for you. You don't really have the independence of planning and executing the course as you wish. Jackson High School has many extracurricular activities to have fun after school and if you don't have time after school, you can take some extracurriculars in an hour during the school day. Jackon High School offers rigorous courses to help you challenge yourself academically and excel. Teachers are willing to help you succeed.
I really enjoy the amount of extracurricular activities we have access to. We also have lots of challenging courses and AP classes. We offer the most AP classes in all of Jackson County. Classrooms are nice, but could use some updating.
The diversity at Jackson High has allowed me to broaden my understandings of different races and religions. The location of Jackson High has allowed me to reach out to businesses and acquire jobs and internships as well.
Jackson high has been a good school with good teachers but sometimes they do not do enough and they don’t focus on all of their kids just certain ones, they’d are big on sports and they try to make the best out of everything. Jackson high tries to make everyone well welcomed
My school is very much a misunderstood place. Many people think that Jackson High is a bad place to attend school. I'm here as a recent graduate of Jackson High to let you know that it is not true. We have many educational opportunities including AP classes, dual enrollment, and the Career Center where students learned a trade or skill and also went to school for free. The school is also the best example of the great American melting pot that you can find outside of a major city like Detroit or Grand Rapids. Jackson is not exactly a happening place, which is best for students who need time to study and work, and network as well. I definitely recommend my school as your school of choice.
