Jackson is a very bad school I enroll their and saw bad behaviors in the school, and see a lot of bullying in the school the staff who patrols the students don't even do a thing they should have more staffs and lockers so I can store my stuff rather than carrying them. More likely there have been fewer field trips and fewer events in the school. Also there have been bullying in the school and the staffs and teachers don't even do a thing. The teachers don't come out to recess to look at the student if they are doing bad behavior or not. Parents do not enroll any students to that school !

I see all the oppositive of what I was informed. I have ALL positive input of L. Jackson. Staff is outstanding, from the parking lot, security, administration and the STAR coordinators. My first year with my 4th grader daughter and the resources and communication offered by teacher are great! Look forward in growing with this school and seeing MORE resources and involvement from other parents! thank you

I agree with the field trips and after school comments below (probably could be helped with some fund raising activities), but I feel the school has made improvements. I went to the Open House last month and there was a lot of parents who participated. The teached and principal seemed to care about the students.

yes i belive that this school isnt giving much of field trips and extra things, but i believe that it isnt their fault, infact isnt it the economic crisis, not only has jackosn fallen into this but so have many paramount k-8 schools. I would say that this school is progressing in some way, they have know offered electives and have added a helping class for students who have fallen behind. I strongly feel that Jackson is at its best.

So I've been to this school since since 4th grade and I'm currently in the 8th. And the it's really bad. Especially this year. They really don't do much for those who are ahead in classes and those who are behind. Lately I fell as I've been slipping behind in my classes. Sometimes I wonder if I should have stayed in the district of Compton.

My child just started this school the first 3 days were complete chaotic. The kids didnot received all there books tell last thursdays they started school on 8/25/08. I have never seen a school ran so badly. They have no after school activities so far. They have no field trips planned like other schools. The school has no hope for change for the students going there. They also donot have any challenging classes for children who are high achievers or natural gifted in science and math. I can not recommend this school.
