Frat Star, no; USJ did nothing correct. You did though by being a good student, paying attention and learning and then using that to obtain whatever "free rides" you were offered-assuming none are athletic scholarships. Sometimes the best and worst schools are decided by the effort one puts into them?

I kind of have to disagree with that. My daughter made a 33 on her act and had the highest gpa at her school. She did not get a free ride.

@guest: maybe it was just the school(s) she applied to?

Medina schools are over loaded and there is NOTHING there.....bunch of houses all stacked on top of each other.....
So what is in Jackson ?? A bunch of ghetto hood rats. Actually, Medina is a suburb of Jackson. This is the most realistic description. Most Medina residents are employed in Jackson. They shop, dine, and otherwise spend their money in Jackson, but go home somewhere else. Jackson is a miniature Memphis. Yes, USJ is a great school. Let's get that out of the way. Not all Medina students would belong at USJ, although many would. This is not a fair comparison. It is apples and oranges. Medina is a public system and USJ is private. USJ is expensive $$$ and can cherry pick their students. Most of the "new" Medina residents are transplants who do not identify or connect with the rest of Gibson County. For all it is worth, Medina is a suburb of Jackson. No other Gibson County community can claim that.

Does any one know anything about Madison? How come the local government doesn't straighten things out with the schools? How come the school board has wanted to destroy its own city's school system by its zoning?

And that perfectly describes all who go there - only one word was left out. That would be the word "prick" - and I don't mean the "stuck by a sharp object" definition, either.

If u want ur child to be a successful person in life don't send to Jackson school. I am a prOduct of northside high and I would have been way better off in private school. Now drug running is my hobby.

I went to north side and am very happy I did. Got a good education and have a good job now. You'll be successful wherever you go to school if you apply yourself. Sounds to me like you are looking for an excuse to be a loser.

I'd say you have a little too much time on your hands. When you're done jerking it to topix comments please wash your hands before you go back to flipping burgers for me.

My kids go to TCA (Trinity Christian Academy) in Jackson. They are in elementary grades and all have straight A's. It's a great school with wonderful teachers and I terrific principal. There is financial aide to help with the tuition if you need it. What I love about it is that they have chapel every week, bible class, fine arts, and different summer programs. Our oldest daughter went to a public school the first year we moved here and it was awful!

Alexanderr, dont put your kids in Jackson schools. The surrounding counties all have better school systems than Jackson. I am sorry, but it true.
you are so right.

Yes, if you are a religious nut, who believes that the earth is only 2,000 years old, then it is wonderful for you and your offspring. I understand that TCA, or any other private school, would be preferable to any Jackson ghetto hood rat infested school. However, for many of us, we have found our utopia in Medina. Go Hornets!!!!!

Medina schools are not what the parents think they are.
Should be called Galloway School System and Gallowayville!!
One new high school has ruined the entire GCSD system.

Last I heard there was a lot of crap going on in Medina. It is not a "utopia".

Madison is a great school. Better than JCS and TCA, and just as good as USJ (and Madison is free). Our Academic Decathlon team has gone to the national championship every year ever since we have had a team. (10 yrs in a row)

USJ is better than Madison in every aspect. Higher scores for sure. They actually publish their AP scores because they aren't ashamed of the numbers. Good try though.

I am a sissy gay boy from USJ. I am very privileged and pampered. My parents attend Galas and are in VIP Jackson every month. I would not want to get my rear end kicked by some uncouth public school kid.
