My experience in Jackson-Olin High School throughout my Freshman to Senior year has been challenging and it has shaped in many ways. I like how the school is a place where you can meet very great friends and the fact that it has many career tech programs to help us students with our futures. I also love the clubs in the school and I am involved in just about all of them and hold officer positions in them. I would like to see a few changes in the school. For example, I would like the security, the bell schedules, the lunch, and sometimes how the teachers interact change. During my Junior to Senior year my character and participation in the school grew tremendously because I was exposed to more opportunities provided by my counselor. I have became a mature young adult in Jackson-Olin High School since I have been there and I appreciate them for paving the way for me.

I love Jackson Olin high school. I feel accepted their and we have good teachers and good students.When I first got to high school I thought that it would be hard but with the help of teachers and fellow classmates it was easy. At Jackson Olin they are working to make students legends when they leave and go out in to the world. Jackson-Olin is a community and a family of talented people!
Jackson-Olin gives everyone the opportunity to be successful. The administrators and even some students are concerned about your well-being. If you try, you can get the best education possible from Jackson-Olin.
