Horrible school! Full of bullies and teachers that don't do anything to stop it. Lots of racism as well. My son is white and is targeted everyday. I took him out of this poor excuse for a school. Most unsafe school in a bad area. Thank God he's out of there!

my name is cierra montoya now i don't have any programs but i do want to tell you how much jackson means to me. some teachers have asked me questions like 'do i love school' well i'm gonna say 'yes' and [omg] the teachers and Administrators are so nice . . 'i am planning on going to be an Administrators' at jackson. most people would say being a Administrator is to hard and stressful but i see it as a chance to educate kids and make them to want to learn and say 'i can do this and that i'll get to my goal this way'. where every student every day strives for success go jaguars!!

It is a fantastic school...I am an IB student entering the 8th grade and I think that the AVID and IB Programmes work well together and they are hand in hand programmes...I have had a very enjoyable experience at JMS and am a proud Jackson Jaguar.

Okay, as an I.B. Student I do not like this school At ALL.... This school is an I.B school and lets everyone know but the teachers are not the worst I just feel that they can be better , they don't show enough effort as it pertains to helping the kids learn and this school is not just for I.B. we have what they are referred to as "the regular kids" in this school and everyone acts like they are not important and they don't matter because its an I.B. school and this is not a bias statement because I am a I.B. student .

Okay, I get that it is in a bad neihborhood. It still is one of the best schools in orange county. I am an I.B. student at jackson and the teachers are AMAZING. The school provides busses for the I.B. students. And depending on your school your districted for, you may have like me, dodged a bullet.

First, of all its very easy to find faults in a school and discipline begins at home. As parents we need to realize that those teachers are there to teach if we had more control over our kid, they won't face a lot of problems and teachers wont waist time correcting our kids. They will have more time to teach. Stonewall Jackson is a great school with wonderful staff and a SUPER PRINCIPAL that cares about his staff and students, Has a parents i stand behind the Principal and staff. Our child is in the IB program and he is getting what he needs to get. Some kids go to school to be clowns and waist their and the teachers time. let us stp playing the blame game and know when you go to school is to learn. It doesn't matter what neighborhood the school is located in.

I attended this school in 2009-2010 for 6th grade, and I asked my mom to take my out as soon as we could. This school was ghetto. Bad kids, bad neighborhood, and much more. Luckily, I came from Dover Shores Elementary so I didn't live there. If any parents are moving to Orlando, Howard or Conway middle are much better. I transferred to Howard Middle for 7th and 8th grade, and loved it much more.

This is another review for a student at S. Jackson Middle School, I have been for a few weeks now.... Things are a little better. Kids still are noisy and destructive. Still only learning in 2 classes. But this time there is a terrible kid in my last class. He is very noisy and NOT respective. He does not behave, and to me it seems as if the teacher is not being very controlling of his actions in her class. This is still a horrible school through my perspective.

Sjms is a very diciplined school and i am someone who is saying that b/c i thought that it was not a very good school. Turns out, i ws wrong. I have gotten a 4.0 since i started and the IB andAVID Program is great ! We are taking high school classes already and getting ahead in life. Not to even talk about how the teachers are they are so involved and nice and willing to go and help you with the extra step. Jackson has changed and it waayyy different now. an i love it there .

I was a student on Jackson Middle School I already graduated on 2006 from Colonial which I never had a problem. But in Jackson I used to too manny problems with other girls since I was shy and I was new and didnt know english. Now my sister is enroll in Jackson and she is having the same problems I think that the stuff of the school should put more discipline on this kids..

Stonewall Jackson Middle School has a great IB program and should be recognized for its achievements. The faculty, staff and administrators are quite responsive and concerned about every student.

I am a student at jackson, this school has rose out of the depths and become the best school Florida has to offer, With the new Ib and AVID programs that our school offers shows that jackson isn't a 'Bad' school like everybody says. The students are determined to be the best and are the best there is no way that anyone can put down Jackson with everything that is new and improved.

Jackson Middle School is a great school and with a wonderful administration and staff team. The AVID and IB programs are outstanding and we just recently became the 1st in Orange County and the 2nd in the state to become an Avid Demonstration School. Jackson is continuing to grow and exceed expectations. We are truly 'building a global community'!

SJM's is a great school. Most kids are poorly disiplined at home I can tell, I'm a student thier in 8th grade. Most kids have a lack of confidence and really dont care how well they do. All the teachers are great and really care about thier kids. I hope that we can change the reputation.

I think Stonewall Jackson has alot of potential, but has yet to live up to it. With alot of effort it can improve it' poor reputation. I pray that it does. As of right now I am looking for another school for my daughter!
