  • I was a foreign exchange student at this high school in the school year 06/07 and I had a wonderful time! I had never seen teachers before who were motivated like those at JCCHS and they always offered help, listened at your problems and were always willing to help you after school. The Counselors did also an amazing job, I had a hard time in spring b/c of one my childhood friends back home had to fight cancer and I had to make many visits at the counselling office and I was allowed to go there any time I wanted and they were really helpful. The teachers want to teach and help you, the students were open and really nice (ok, there always some exceptions) and for the first time in my life I liked going to school. It was the perfect school!

  • I just finished my freshman year at this high school and I really enjoyed it. This high school offers lots of skills that can be used in later life. One of these skills for instance (which I was enrolled in) was Ag mechanics. You will be able to weld and learn about electrical wiring and how to work on small engines. As for the curriculum it is very easy. I came from private school and found all of this material second nature. It was almost as if I had all of the information in the back of my head. And as in all schools there are good and bad teachers. Jackson County High School also has a wonderful counseling office that can help students with problems with other kids or their home life. Most of the kids at this school are very normal and nice, although each school has its bad apples. No matter who you are you will always find someone that is like you that you can relate to. Other than the curriculum this school is a great place to learn trades and get an AVERAGE education.
