Jackson Senior High School Reviews

I believe my time as a student at Jackson Senior High is best rated as very good. I felt as if the teachers employed at this establishment were invested in the lives of their students and strived for their success. Also, there are multiple courses set in place for the diverse learning and interests of the students who are enrolled. The only thing I would change about Jackson Senior High is the money distribution between sports. Throughout my high school career, I was a member of the Jackson Spear-It Dancers. Every year the dance team was, and continues to be, expected to raise the majority of their money through fundraising, while most other sports are almost completely funded. I believe attention should be drawn to the variety of sports and clubs that are offered at Jackson Senior High, instead of all the light being shown on one or two activities. Otherwise, I feel as if this school effectively prepares students for the future and pushes academic achievement.

At Jackson Senior High School, I came in as a freshman not knowing anyone, and the school and kids made me feel so welcome. Throughout my four years, I feel like I have been well-prepared for college, and the teachers are amazing!
This school does a very terrific job on college readiness. Very impressed. Plus the academics are top notch. The only complaint that some people get (especially those who have been in other school districts besides Jackson R-II in the past) is the fact that Jackson's band program doesn't include freshmen in the senior high band. However, this is something that can't be changed due to the fact of the sudden transition from the junior high building to the senior high building for the freshman class.
