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...

What i really like about my highschool is that the teachers are excellent teachers, the ones i’ve had at least. My teachers were influential and very helpful when it came to my education and lifestyle. The staff is friendly and most of all helpful, especially the counselors and college director. The security take their jobs seriously although what I’d like to see change is the student’s school spirit..with more school spirit, this school would be an even more influential experience.
As a Sophomore who's seen quite a lot during my time at this particular school, I will be completely honest when I say that although the staff and faculty attempt to make the student's educational experience worthwhile, classes and overall school-life here at Jackson has been less than optimal. With terrible lunch food, fairly inexperienced teachers, and a lack of programs that discipline students and teach them how to behave, it has been an admittedly hard time trying to thrive here. Other than those obstacles that can be easily solved, though, I will say that I congratulate and respect the people who try their absolute best to make this experience great. If I were to change anything about Jackson, it would be the way we are taught. There is so much potential gone to waste here just because of the way students are taught: to focus on their next grade rather than absorbing the information. I can say that I am glad to be one of the lucky ones who's able to think outside the standards.
