I've been at Jackson high school for 3 years now and this year i'm a senior. I transferred from Oak Hill high school because of bullying and once I came to Jackson, it was a new life for me. The studies are tough but most of the teachers truly care about your education. Although jackson can be a very strict school. I wish I could change the book bag and bathroom policy. Also I wish I knew more about the academics because a lot of things changed when transferring from a different school and they didn't help very much on that aspect. Overall, I rank Jackson pretty high just because if I wouldn't have came here, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you Jackson High School!

My overall experience with Jackson High School is wonderful. The teachers are great and they care so much for you and your education. I love how when we do good on our tests, we get rewarded. Such as, for sophomores, after they get done taking their OGT's (Ohio Graduation Tests), the principal rewards us with a day where we go into the field house and play games, sports, and/or socialize. It's pretty fun! There is nothing that unique about this school. It's pretty average, we have clubs and sports to choose from. Our fan support and school spirit for football is outstanding. We're just your typical small town high school!
I think that overall it is a very well rounded school but it is a very white, Christian school. There isn't a lot of diversity throughout the school and they aren't very open to talking about diversity.
