Amazing School. Really one that will prepare students more than they know for college and beyond. Community surrounding is also amazing and supportive. This past season the football team made it to the state championship, and in a town of 14,000 we had 7,000 people drive more than 4 hours to come fill up Mizzou's Stadium. Amazing town, Amazing people, Amazing administrators, Amazing Students, Amazing preparedness, amazing futures, and amazing culture within the halls of the Jackson R-2 School District.

I enjoyed every bit of my experience at Jackson High School. The extracurricular activities were abundant and all very well supported by our faculty and staff. Our academic programs were what I believe to be some of the best in the state, especially when talking about public schools. Our music program is top of the line with our choir and band both being very competitive for spots at Tan-Tar-A.
The teachers will always make time for their students and do the best of their ability to work around your schedule to get you help. The entire district's first concern in the safety of its students which means it takes any and all threats seriously and investigates immediately. There is no place that I would rather have spent my four years of high school than here at Jackson Senior High School.
Jackson Senior High School has made a huge impact on my life. From bettering my education to encouraging me to do my best. The motto here is "Jackson High School will ensure that every student develops essential skills for success in life." This school has opened so many opportunities for me that have over achieved that motto. All teachers here are very passionate with their work and love helping the students to make sure their goals are met. With over 20 clubs, sports ranging from swim to bowling, Jackson High School has so much to offer. They give the students the resources they need to study, to ensure they have every thing they need for their success, and to be as comfortable as possible for their learning space.
