Ive been at Jackson since my sixth grade year and it is an amazing school district. Despite what other parents on this site have said, the staff and administration, while strict on the kids who need it, are not 'intellectually ibred' I feel lucky to be able to graduate fromJackson nextt year

Jackson could be a great school, but the administration seems to dislike any necessary changes that would facilitate progress. Students do not receive necessary preparation for the tests they take due to staff that has not changed with the times. It's very sad considering how the successful the school could be with new leadership and new lead teachers.

A very narrow minded staff and administration. There are a few good teachers at the school, however, the intellectually inbred nature of this institution reigns supreme.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
