Jackson is a school of diversity, which in Jackson is very rare we are the most diverse school and I love that. KNowing I have teachers the same color as me, students, and faculty. This school teaches change and acceptation which is o important in today's world.
The atmosphere is good and the faculty is nice, but there aren't as many opportunities for the students.
It’s been pretty good I would say I love how diverse my school is and the variety of different classes and opportunities that you get. Also I love that the school is constantly getting upgraded and now it starting to look so much better and high tech!
My experience at Jackson High has been overall great! Even with COVID-19 ending my freshman year early. The teachers and staff kept positive energy through zooms and activities that we could participate in virtually. I love that my high schools offers 2 dual enrollment programs to students like me who are trying to save money and earn college credits for free. I also enjoy the many clubs at my school that is open to everyone. Student Government is my favorite! Not because I am the president of it, but because every student that participates in this group is kind, creative, and open-minded. We get to make our peers happy by planning events like pep rallies, spirit weeks, dances, and more. If there was one thing I could change about my school it would be the lunch menu. Since we are a closed campus school, my only option is to bring a lunch or eat the lunch food. I don't mind eating the lunch food, but I have seen a pattern of the same foods everyday.
Jackson high school is not the best. The teachers do not teach they simply give out work. There’s barely any hands on activities and is over all not the best for learning unless you’re in all honors or ap classes. The administration is also not great.
The school is very diverse, and culturally accepting. The staff is very friendly, and makes an effort to connect with the students.
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.
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.
Jackson High School has a very diverse student/teacher body. One thing i would change is the way the handle bullying both inside and outside of the classroom. Much like other schools they don't take it very seriously in most cases. Aside from that I loved the curriculum and the variety of classes the students can take.
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 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.
The staff is amazing! You can go to anyone with questions about the curriculum, and they’ll help point you in the direction to get help. We have a very friendly environment!
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.
