Henry M. Jackson High School Reviews
I'm a freshman this year at Jackson and i have loved every bit of this year. There are bad teachers but they aren't the worst I've had and more good teachers outweigh the bad. Also a lot of students have school spirit. GO TIMBERWOLVES!!!!!!!!!!
I think that Jackson is one the best school's in the entire Pacific Northwest. My son goes there as a 9th grader and I have never heard him say one bad thing about the school. I feel that every school has bullying and Jackson doesn't have a lot of it. If a someone's kid is being bullied then they shouldn't assume that the rest of the school is bad. There are a lot of GOOD kids at this school and they fit in just fine.
Sadly, Jackson has a large population of students who think it is OK to bully. The admisnistration does not seem to be able to control the kids or individual situations. Many teachers clearly do not like their job or have a passion for teaching. Kids who make poor choices are not held accountable and allowed to continue to participate in sports. If parents aren't teaching kids compassion for each other, the school isn't holding kids accountable for harassment issues, where do the "good kids" go. It is difficult to escape the toxic environment of Jackson. There is much work to be done there. I wouldn't advise any parent to send their child to a school with all of these problems. A very negative place.
