The mission of Mission of Maynard H. Jackson High School is to be accountable for providing a globally competitive education that empowers students to achieve academic and personal goals and to become productive, responsible citizens for the 21st Century.
We believe that the purpose of education is to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for each student to become a contributing member of society. Furthermore, we believe it is the responsibility for every faculty member in a school to respond with respect and concern to the changing needs of all students. Therefore, student backgrounds must be considered and all students accepted as valuable individuals. Our school will provide an environment that is safe, clean, orderly, and conducive to learning. Cooperation and open lines of communication among faculty, students, parents, administration, and all stakeholders are essential for student achievement. The school and community should form an alliance that benefits the students. As a responsible institution promoting democracy, the school fosters involvement of all its member groups. Remember, we believe in Equity, Access, and Opportunity for ALL.
