Jackson Preparatory & Early College Reviews

Jackson Preparatory & Early College (JPEC) is a school that promotes excellence through the early college model. It allows students as early as freshmen to become dual enrolled in college courses at Jackson College, where the school is located, as well as attend classes at the Jackson Area Career Center.
Academics are centered around a Mastery Scale, only allowing students to advance if they had demonstrated a proficient understanding, and allowing opportunities for advancement for those who demonstrate subject matter mastery and beyond. This leaves students beyond ready for college courses and life beyond, creating mature and responsible young adults.
There is a great amount of diversity in both students and staff. This has created a great amount of understanding for diverse situations, and creating a friendly school community, with an immense amount of school spirit. I love JPEC, and though a new school, there is so much room for growth in an already outstanding program.

When the school first opened, I was really excited to get started and meet new people and gain some great experiences. I've been at the school three now, and all of this has happened, and it's hard to imagine myself in another school. It gives the students an amazing and exclusive look into college life and provides us with the amazing opportunity of taking college classes at a younger age. At the same time, not everyone is ready for this. Additionally, I would say that the communication and the structure could improve in the years to come. But, the administration, teachers, and students are all nice and willing to help and I think that this, amongst other things, is what's special about this school.
My experience at JPEC was an interesting one. The school is very focused on a students academic future. They try to have students entering college classes as soon as possible. Despite this they also make sure the student is ready to enter a college class. If the student is behaving in a manner the shows they aren't ready for college they hold off on having the student start college classes. This does not mean that a student has to be mature to start college classes they just have to want to start college classes. The student has to be responsible for their own work and will not be coddled by the teachers. Overall the school could use some work (the main issues being communication and the traditional high school experiences) but for getting a college degree alongside a high school diploma it is a good option.
