The overall atmosphere of Jackson is extremely friendly and welcoming. The area is true to its community, and is an optimal place to raise children. The school system is one of the best in Ohio, with amazing athletics as well. Jackson has many different amenities, and is a great location. It's close to the Akron-Canton Airport, is only two hours from Columbus, and only an hour from Cleveland!

Close-knit community. Living and working in Jackson has been an incredible experience. There are many local businesses, the schools are great, rated excellent with distinction. The township is large, but there are many neighborhoods that will make it feel smaller and closer.
I love the public school system in Jackson Township. We have so many opportunities for students that teachers and administrators push us to take advantage of. These include a wide range of classes, activities, and outside programs that not every school offers. I feel prepared for college because of my time at Jackson High School.
