Maynard Jackson high school is a fun and great school to attend. Very proactive with their students with their work and after school activities! I attended Maynard Jackson high school as a honor student and they have so much to offer from honors classes to IB classes. The school is well maintained and clean. Awesome teachers and the best administrative. Let’s not forget how active the principal of the school is!
My school is very interactive and cares about its students. The administration would like to see their students succeed in every way possible. Whether it be from academics, to sports, and also just being you. What I would like to see change is the academic programs, I would like to see more students get recommended for AP, and IB courses. Even though some people aren't ready, the sky isn't the limit. Shoot as high as you can go and keep going!
