Jackson High School is a wonderful place to get a high school education. The facilities are top of the line. The arts programs are celebrated instead of destroyed. The band program (with over 200 members) is known as "the pride of Jackson" and is the star of every local event. The teachers are dedicated to their students. The students are not very diverse, but they all participate in a variety of different sports, clubs, and community service groups. The number of valedictorians every year is baffling. Classes are vocal and education is hands-on.

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!
Jackson High School was more than just a school. To me this is where I called home, where I grew and where I learned life lessons I will carry with me forever. The staff and faculty made me who I am today and I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else.
