I appreciate that the teachers truly care about the students, and help them in anyway possible. The administration is doing different things to ensure safety, after a horrific event last year. Jackson High School welcomes everyone and promotes individuals to express themselves and what they believe in. There is a variety of clubs and activities to be apart of! Nobody will feel left out or different at this school.

It’s a bummer how Jackson isn’t as great as they say it is! I transferred from Jackson to Green after hearing about the better school life at Green. It is a crazy difference. The school is still predominantly rich and white, but green has an atmosphere attempting to help students, not degreade them.
I went to Jackson from 2nd grade to 9th grade. I ended up transferring to Dublin Jerome High School near Columbus, Ohio. I may have taken for granted what a great place Jackson High School is and the whole community in general. Jackson allowed for students to really excel in all their classes. They have a very nice lenient grading scale unlike other schools where they have A+ or A-. They have a wide selection of AP/IB/CCP classes to choose from and their wonderful teaching staff is always there to help. I realized how great of a school this was after I left. I want to stress that if you are thinking of coming to Jackson, you certainly will not regret it. I promise you on that.
