Jackson High School Reviews
Love this school!
I went to Jackson High from 9th grade through 12th grade and I received a fantastic education. I was given the opportunity to take advanced placement classes which prepared me well for higher education. They do not offer classes like this at every school so keep that in mind when choosing where you would like to send your kids. The Jackson Public School system does not have a good reputation, but most of that comes from prejudice about who attends the school. It's a diverse school district and I am grateful I was given the opportunity to learn in such a diverse environment. It's a great big world out there and it's important to learn how to accept and work with people of all different races, religions, and economical backgrounds.
