Please be sure to check our JHS Student Services web page for valuable information:
Other information you may be looking for may include International Youth Exchange Programs. Each year, we have inbound students who are looking to enhance their education by traveling to the United States. We have been fortunate to host students through various programs from countries including: Japan, China, Spain, Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Kalmykia Republic of Russia, Netherlands, France, and Mexico just within the last few years.
If students are interested in traveling abroad, we encourage students to take a look at the various organizations (like Rotary International, People to People) that could be utilized.
Typically students would do an immersion experience during their junior or senior year. Questions about making up credits for time not spent at Jackson High School should be addressed with your student’s respective counselor.
If International travel is not in the plan for a whole year, please be sure to check out the various opportunities offered through Jackson High School. The World Languages Department is a great place to start!
Beyond high school, we encourage students to take a look at opportunities at the college level. Colleges and universities have various programs and options for studying abroad. This experience is a life changing educational opportunity.
There is a diverse world waiting to be discovered.
Becoming globally aware is valuable and necessary. We encourage students to be life-long globally aware citizens to help improve our own nation and the world in which we live.
