Welcome to Our School
Dear Students, Parents, and Staff:
Welcome to East Jackson Comprehensive High School, home of the Eagles!
I have had the wonderful opportunity to experience all that the Jackson County School System has to offer through many lenses – as a student myself many years ago, as a high school English teacher, as a parent, as an assistant principal, and as principal.
Our EJCHS Mission statement is “The mission of EJCHS is to graduate every student on time, college and work-ready.” At EJCHS, we are redefining success. For our 1250+ students, success may look different for each individual. Acceptance to 4-year colleges/universities or technical colleges, military appointments, workforce readiness, etc. all define success for our students. To meet these vast needs, we offer traditional high school curriculum, AP programs, dual enrollment programs through both 4-year colleges/universities and technical colleges, Work-Based Learning opportunities, internships, online learning opportunities, rich fine arts and CTAE programs, and a variety of athletic and extracurricular activities–the list could go on and on. We are committed to meeting students where they are and to guiding them to select the most appropriate course to lead to their success.
Although success looks different for each student, there are some common threads running through what makes each of us a successful, contributing member of our East Jackson Community. I challenge each of you, student and adult alike, to begin this school year with a renewed focus on self-discipline and personal accountability. Have excellent attendance. Make the most of the opportunities before you. Honor and respect the rules and procedures that have been established to help give you the best chance to be safe and academically successful. Ask for help when you need it. Treat others with kindness, respect, and compassion. Do the right thing–even when no one is looking. Leave a legacy that matters to those eagles who come after you. Be proud to be an Eagle!
