My daughter goes to Jackson High School and my other daughter graduated from JHS. There are problems with the school but it is getting worked on. I think that the change in the county board of education and the leadership will be good for the students. Change is good and I expect to see better scores from the schools. Parental involvement would help also. Your children will learn what is taught but parents need to get involved and help the educators. We are a small county school but improvements are on the horizon. I would gladly recommend Butts County Schools.

Just to add a note to my previous statement. If you didn't know any different then I suppose someone would think this school is "ok" but compared to other schools across the state it is very subpar in every category no matter what the poistive reviews on here may say! If you're considering moving here then be sure and do your research about the schools in this area....you may change your mind!!!
This is my son comment about Jackson High School I loved Jackson High School so much teacher pay attention to me and my college help me pass through all obstacle while I'm Culture exchange student here . ANd ROTC Training program and America history subject are my favourite subject . It's fantastic to be here .
The school is not the best school in jackson ga but we can make it better!
I went to high school here and I can say that some of the people teaching me were some of the best people I've ever known. On top of everything the principal really cares about his school and does everything he can to make it better. As he continues to assemble a better team of teachers (he is constantly reviewing and getting rid of teachers who aren't doing their job) the schools test scores are improving. And also the school is pretty small but there are lots of opportunities to be found. Mr. Gonzalez takes a group of students to Europe just about every year and Spanish Club goes on an annual trip (we went to NYC one year and it was amazing). You just have to find a way to plug in and if you behave in classes (and aren't a pain) the teachers will bend over backwards to help.
i love this school and think all kids will enjoy it.
Our daughter loves Jackson High she is an Honor Student and often comments on how she appreciates just how much the teachers that she has had the opportunity to have are willing to help when needed. We are looking forward to anther Super Year!
When we first came to Jackson High I was unsure of how our daughter would be treated due to her prior experience at another school in Gwinnett county. I spoke with her counselor Mrs. Rankin and told her my feelings and how my husband and I felt. She has improved with the help of Mrs. Rankin and has made a huge turn around in her life . I can't say thank you enough to Mrs. Rankin in sticking by our daughter and encouraging her.We are so happy we switched schools now and have seen our daughter grow in so many ways. Thanks Mrs. Rankin for giving our daughter a chance and not mis judging her on her prior records. Our daughter loves most of her teachers as well and is now an honor roll student. Thanks to the staff at JHS.
When we decided to enroll my grandson into the Jackson system we first did so with some trepidation. However soon after his enrollment our concerns were laid to rest. He soon involved himself with the School's ROTC program and began an exciting High School term. He is graduating now and on his way to college with a good solid foundation of tools we are sure he will be able to utilize. The teachers care as much as the parents do. Some more than others.(Just like the parents) Get the kids involved then see the grades change. The school system is fine and the leadership is under control. Great system.
This school has a problem with teachers who care. The problem is...there are only maybe 5 who do care. I was an honor roll student and never got into trouble in school but when I arrived in College I had to take intermediate math. Things I was suppose to 'know' in 9th grade I had never seen before. I guess what I'm saying is that the departments are EXTREMELY laking (ESP. math) in what they are teaching YOUR CHILDREN. I do not recommend this school to anyone If I had a choice I would not have gone here and my future children will not either.
We have extreme reservations about supervision levels and security at JHS. After school activity is minimally supervised.
This school seemed to have limited parent involvement. There are some academic programs. It is pretty easy to find an extracurricular activity to fit into.
JHS has the most involved caring and hands-on principal I have ever encountered in a public high school setting. This brings a positive impact to the kids the teachers & the parents!
I recommend this school to others. It has great leadership and great teachers. They ride with you until the end and doesn't worry about making friends and worries about their grades and discipline.
I would not recommend this school to anyone. Very poor leadership.
