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.

Jackson High School does an excellent job teaching the students and preparing them for college. They have wonderful resources and facilities to assist in this matter, while also giving ample ways for students to get involved in their school and community through clubs, activities, sports as well as other things.
I enjoyed my senior year at Jackson High School. I was chartered schooled from Kindergarten till my senior year. I played in the marching band, drama club (crew and then played a major part), jazz band and became very accepted and had a tremendous year. Went to Disney World with the band. Now I am enrolled at Ohio Christian University in Circleville, Ohio where I am taking Education.
