Jackson Preparatory School Reviews
Jackson Preparatory School is an excellent learning environment for many people, regardless of their ethnicity. Prep's atmosphere and culture is lively, and Prep enjoys including different cultures into its school by having events like International Day. With the positive atmosphere Prep gives, students know that their education is excellent for them. Jackson Prep has vigorous academics that challenge the minds of students logically and creatively; and their abundance of clubs and activities add to the flair of the Jackson Prep culture and family.
My experience at Prep has been interesting. I was one 40 kids in the 6th grade, and we were all so close. However, in 7th grade the school let in 130 kids, so we had 170 kids total in our grade. It was very hard to stand my ground and not get lost in the crowd. School has always been stressful for me because I put a lot of pressure on myself. Thankfully, Prep has teachers who have always been willing to work with me. If I could change something about Prep it would have to be letting seniors get exempt from exams. The reason we've never been able to get exempt before is because Prep wants to prepare us for college since since you don't get exempt at all. I appreciate that, but in your senior year everyone has "senioritis", and it is hard to concentrate on exams. All they do is end up hurting our grades. I feel since we have had to take 20+ exams since 6th grade, we should, by now, be able to take one the right way.
At Jackson Prep I enjoyed the livelihood of the campus and all of the things Prep has to offer. I played football for four years at Prep and we won the state championship all four years, so that of course made football enjoyable. The teachers do a good job of preparing you for college and the work you will experience. The facilities at Prep are all great and nice and clean and provide a great learning environment for the students. The only thing that I would change about Prep is a couple of the teachers that are not very great.
IT GOOD. A+ school. Pretty ok. The courses are fun and the teachers are very helpful and patient if you don't understand something. There are many clubs and electives to choose from too!
I enjoyed the friendly environment that was there along with the importance of academics that all students have. It is a great school where all of the students are fully committed and involved. I think that for change, the only change that I would say is to have a much more diverse group, but other than that, it is a perfect school that I am happy and pleased to be in.
I came to this school my junior year and it was a difficult transition but the staff was very willing to work with me and provide me with the educational needs I lacked. Highly recommend starting this school in the lower grades to benefit the most out of the educational plans and developments they offer. As for the sports side I believe they have gotten rid of the coaches who lacked coaching abilities/ working well with their athletes.
I came to Jackson Prep after my sophomore year because I wanted a challenge. Not only has Jackson Prep prepared me for college but it has also helped me discover my true passions and helped me realize that I can achieve my dreams!
This School and everything about the administration and the people working there in all buildings are the worst.
Amazing teachers, Amazing Academics. The board and all supervisors are what make this school terrible. The principal of this junior high is the most rude person you will ever meet.
What drew me towards choosing to attend Jackson Prep was the inviting atmosphere. Here, I feel welcome and everyone's kindness has made last seven years here irreplaceable. I feel that I have had the best schooling experience here at Jackson Prep.
I remember driving by Jackson Prep many times, and each time I wondered what it would be like to actually be able to attend it. Eventually, I made it my goal to transfer there for my remaining years of high school. After my sophomore year in high school, I was able to convince my parents that Jackson Prep would be a perfect fit for me. The best part about this school was the academics. I always felt as if I challenged by all of my teachers, which pushed me to do my best. If I was ever in need of help, my teachers were always ready to give me that extra push. We had access to incredible technological tools and resources that you would not find anywhere else. Along with those luxuries, we were served good quality food. This is something that many children in other schools complain about, but we never had to be concerned about what we were eating. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience.
This school as taught me the value of pursuing excellence in all aspects of my life. I am forever grateful I had the opportunity to go here.
Jackson Prep has a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities to suit the interest of every student.
Most teachers are very helpful, but some teachers are not.
There are many opportunities for extracurriculars at this school such as FTC and FLL robotics along with Junior Classical League and many more. Also, clubs can be started by interested students as long as they have enough members and have a teacher who is willing to advise the club.
I love this school the school gives its students a free period in which kids are allowed to do homework, go buy food, or just hang out with friends. I think this shows the amount of trust and respect this school has for its students.
The teachers at this school are great they are open to tutor help you before or after school if needed and they are really invested in their students success.
