Miami Jackson Sr. High is in the inner city part of Miami, FL my freshman experience was terrible so has my other years been. The school has certain good teachers the rest are terrible and get to personal with students with personal life and etc... Some teachers have such strong accents you can’t understand them or the way they teach, teachers don’t care about your education just about what they are teaching they don’t care if you understand or not! Their attitude is terrible. The school over all is way to strict like if we were in prison. They are super short on staff members, teachers, counselors, etc...

The school is definitely diverse with the majority of students pertaining to African-American and Hispanic background. There is a broad amount of clubs and activities offered throughout the school; however, not a lot of the clubs are being promoted. In addition, there is also a broad variety of sports that do very well in the games. As far as academics are concerned, the school doesn't offer a wide range of AP, dual enrollment, or elective courses. In terms of college readiness, there is a great CAP advisor in the school who is really involved with the students and assists them. However, unlike the Cap advisor, a lot of the administration is very rude and not helpful, only a select handful actually listen to the students.
Miami Jackson is an alright school. It could definitely be better. One of the things that I don’t like about this school is the emphasis on using the correct uniform rather than academics.
The college and honor’s academic rigor of this school is almost nonexistent.
This is the kind of school that has a lot of great teachers, but that somehow cannot motivate it’s students to do better.
The amenities of this school could use some remodeling too, but overall if you are a parent,don’t send your kids to this school unless you have to.
