Jackson Independent is an excellent school. The teachers and facility are great people who look out for their students and help them succeed. The class are just hard enough that the students will learn from them. It is also a school that is extremely focused on college readiness, with the options to take college course you sophomore year. This school is also very involved with the parents of its students, with the parents being included in everything that the school does. The food is not a five star meal but it is pretty good. Also, there is a large amount of extracurricular activities, that include sport, chess, and academics.
