Anthony Coffie, Assistant Principal
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Anthony Coffie and I am a Jackson High School Assistant Principal. I am proud to be employed by Jackson Public Schools and to work with the students and faculty/staff of Jackson High School, in addition to the community of Jackson at large.
As a JHS graduate and proud parent of four JHS graduates and aspiring college attendees, I am committed to ensuring Jackson High School continues to inspire, expose and provide experiences and resources for students academically and socially. Jackson High School faculty/staff take pride in the rich academic course offerings available, which continue to grow. From our Early College, Advanced Placement opportunities, to Robotics, performing arts, computer science and CTE, students are ensured academic rigor consistent with their skill and ability levels.
At Jackson High School, we are concerned about the whole student’s education and well-being. Not only are we concerned about the academic welfare of our students, we are invested in their social and emotional well-being as they transition through high school. This year, we will provide transition courses for students as they enter high school and through the grade levels up until the time of graduation. During the transitions courses, students will develop soft skill sets to be successful in high school and life. Students will be exposed to career readiness and college preparation resource experiences.
Part of my responsibilities are overseeing the junior class (2021) and we will place an intentional focus on career paths and college readiness. Throughout the school year, we will endeavor to help students develop clearer routes to their postsecondary pursuits and academic excellence. Students will be afforded opportunities for college visits as well as exposure to career readiness encounters through visits with local manufacturers, businesses and the military services. I am committed to seeing our students graduate from Jackson High School with a clear vision of where they are headed along with familiarity of the many resources that will assist them in the process of being lifelong learners.
Jackson Public Schools is on the move and Jackson High School is the place to be! We look forward to collaborating with you to make this a successful year!
This is Where Community Comes Together!
