Jackson High School Reviews

I enjoyed attending this school! I am a part of the arts program within Jackson High School, and it has made me much closer with my peers. I also feel this arts program has helped me gain so much confidence. I feel as though my academic abilities have been challenged and I have been pushed, and I am grateful for that. Though I do not participate in sports, the sports teams are very good and well funded. However, what my school has in sports, arts, and academics, it lacks in diversity. The majority of the student body at Jackson High School is white. Also, the majority of the students are also wealthy. I am in the minority of students, as my family does not have much money. Overall, I have enjoyed attending Jackson High School, but it definitely does have its flaws.

Jackson High School is a wonderful institution with a plethora of opportunities and resources to be sought out. Mainly, the school offers students the option of membership in two separate academies, Jackson School for the Arts and Jackson Academy for Global Studies. I, myself, have participated for four years in both of the academies. In addition to these, there is a wide variety of clubs and activities that promote student leadership. Academics at Jackson High School are placed at a very high value by both faculty and the student population. However, students in Jackson are not only high-achieving in a singular area. Since its establishment, this school has consistently produced well-rounded students and citizens. This is largely due to the community's involvement in the the school and vice versa. Not only does the faculty teach the common core, they teach morality and how to lead a successful life by the constantly rising modern standard.
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.
