The best public school in southeast Missouri. Compare scores with other schools the same size and you will find them at the top. Teachers are great. I want my kids to go there.

Yea, if your a football Coach, we will pay you $75,000.00 a year, you will not have to teach, just coach football. Might give you a company car and pay your insurance. We will give you off mondays if you play on Saturdays and if you ask we will give you anything you want as long as you win, because we put FOOTBALL ahead of anything else here at Jackson.

Tell your friend not to walk, but run. Tell them to ask about the high turnover. I taught there for 5 years and it was the worst 5 years of my career. In fact, none of the people I taught with are still teaching in the building I was at. It's a horrible district and I am so glad I work elsewhere!!

I moved from Illinois down here to Southeast Missouri and the schools systems sucks. Horrible was right it's down right horrible. The kids don't learn about anything but Arts and Crafts mostly. (HA) I can back my words up by mostly looking at the drop-out rate of the high schools around here. Never seen so many people who is overly happy about Earning a GED instead of a High School Diploma.

They might cheat. But the sad part is they're cheating off my kids!!! I have smart kids in Jackson schools. Maybe yours are the ones that have to be "retaught" because they are to stupid to get it the first time.

You are a prime example. "As good as others" should be "as well as others". You need to be "retaught."

We have a bunch of bitter people on here. The R-2 district is considered the best public school in Southeast Mo. They are known all over the state for high achieving students in all disciplines. The district is a growing district for the last 10 years and continue to be a model for successful public schools. I'm proud to have graduated from there and my kids are a success because of their education from Jackson R-2. Sorry if you are dissatisfied with the school district. Maybe you should look harder look at what you perceive to be a bad district. It might just be you are the problem.

I work there and thank goodness you don't anymore. Sounds like you are a disgruntled past employee. Jackson is better off without the attitude.

I'm sure you are one of the brown nosers without a backbone, too scared to stand up for what is right. Care to explain the high turn over rate?

Maybe they only want the best teachers and turnover is what it takes to get that.

When are you people gonna learn that Jackson only teaches towards state testing. If you refuse to stay inside those boundaries then you are looked at as a non team player. These are truly the ones trying to make a difference. They just refuse to play the game of state test teaching.
