Jackson Senior High School Reviews

I loved that the school had a safe environment and the teachers cared about the students. The teachers would nag until the student would increase their grade which in all reality is an handy trick to have. This school district encourages high grades and they do this by allowing the students with a 73 or higher in all of their classes. They also promoted sports and had great sports teams. They also helped those students who were struggling in some of their classes and they encouraged tutoring an staying after school to receive help from those who were willing to help. So I can happily say my experience with Jackson Senior High School was an overall enjoyable time of my life where I met new people and made lifelong friendships.

Jackson isn't just a high school, but some place where students can find a great education and amazing peers to help them through tough times. JHS is amazing with their education program but also really great in their athletic department as well.
I had so much fun at my high school over the years especially Jcrue! Everyone is so friendly especially the staff. I also was able to participate in college courses to get me prepared to go to Maryville University.
