For the most part, students in Jackson County’s four high schools did better than the state average in the percent who failed some part of last spring’s End of Course Tests. East Jackson Comprehensive High School had the highest failure rates in three out of eight areas where its students did worse than the state average.
Commerce High School and Jackson County Comprehensive High School students did worse than the state average in the number who failed Economics. Jefferson High School students did better than the state in all eight areas.
The areas where local students struggled the most were in Math and Economics, but did much better than the state failure rates in Physical Science and Biology.
