1 review for Miami Jackson High School

  • Reviewed by Teacher on May 29, 2009
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • A great school nestled in the heart of Allapattah and Liberty City communities. A nice, sleak and sexy new building...with the same apathetic students, being the larger population. Some students understand the importance of doing well, but left with little direction and discipline from parents, teachers, and administration give in to the larger more self-destructive populace.
