Jackson Senior High School
- Jackson R-II School District, MO
Alum: 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.

Saxony Lutheran High School
#2 Best Private High Schools in Cape Girardeau County
- Private School
- Jackson, MO
Alum: I attended Saxony Lutheran High School for all four years of my high school career and enjoyed every moment of being there! It is a rather small school, but I found this to be quite helpful. I was always thoroughly engaged in my classes and received a great education along with close, individualized teaching if need me due to the smaller number of students. I rank Saxony Lutheran on a high regard above other surrounding local schools. It is well run, the faculty and staff are outstanding, and I really felt like a family with my fellow classmates. If I were to redo high school I would choose Saxony Lutheran again!

Leopold High School
- Leopold R-III School District, MO
Alum: Leopold is an excellent place if you are a student who enjoys a close-knit environment and a busy schedule. Students are expected to perform at a high level in all areas, whether it be academics, sports, or extracurriculars, and this has proved to be the "fire" for some students and the undoing of others.
The lack of funding makes it difficult for the school to keep up with basic educational functions, such as reliable wifi (the Internet usually doesn't work about six days out of the month), facility repair (the bathrooms flood when it rains, constant issues with heat and air, etc.), or extracurricular support.
As for diversity, the rural location of the school causes most of it's students to become very sheltered, and, as a result, close-minded. The entirety of the school population is Caucasian, conservative, and Catholic, and anyone who deviates from that norm is often met with some pushback.

Central High School
- Cape Girardeau School District, MO
Junior: I am currently a Junior at Cape Central High School and my experience here has been pretty good. I have made lots of friends, taken many honors and AP classes, and have been given the opportunity to take the ACT for free. I love most of my teachers. Some of them , I believe, are not suited to be teachers due to their poor teaching abilities and their general personality. Everything about this school is either average or great. I have overall enjoyed my three years of high school and I look forward to my senior year.

Eagle Ridge Christian School
#3 Best Private High Schools in Cape Girardeau County
- Private School
- Cape Girardeau, MO
- PK, K-12
Senior: I have only been going to Eagle Ridge Christian School for about a year now and in just the short amount of time that I've been going here I know that I made the right decision. Coming here has shown me how it feels to actually be welcomed and cared about by so many people. Everyone gets along, there isn't any drama, and all of my classmates and faculty are extremely nice to everyone no matter who you are. Also, our teachers are very good at explaining and teaching their classes. An example is I've always struggled with mathematics at my other school and as soon as I came to Eagle Ridge I've had a very good understanding of how to do everything and solve every problem. I recommend everyone to come to Eagle Ridge, because it is a great school overall and anyone who would come would be accepted and welcomed by everyone.

Delta High School
- Delta R-V School District, MO
Niche User: I love my school especially the school trips. Being in color guard which is part of the band, there is a bunch of trips to get to take. During the trips everyone gets along better than most families, including having cheesy sing-alongs where we all sing.
