This school is horrible they do not respect parents what so ever DO NOT listen to these other reviews because they are all lies that are written by the principal.
I am actually a student who attend Jackson and my school is an awesome school we have newly renovated school. Teachers are more concern than before. My mother can come and talk to the principal with no problem and the principal gives her great responses. The curricular there is phenomenal during and after school. Our ballet department is great, the chorus is wonderful and the band is magnificent.
The teachers and principal are much concerned about the students and the level they are on . We hope to get the coaches and atheletic director on board to have the students working as brothers on the field as well as in their studies.
The graduation coaches are encouraging and give excellent suggestions as to how a student can improve on their academics to be prepared for college. The new principal is very involved and as a parent I enjoy working with her. There could be more parent participation in PTA meetings and activities.
Maynard Jackson, you are getting the best principal. Mrs. Johnson is so good at her job. Your parents, teachers, and students will love her!!! If you want to be the best, you chose the right principal.
You are getting a great principal. Your scores will not be low for long. She knows how to push students and teachers to succeed beyond anything they imagined. Mrs. Johnson is the best principal we have ever worked with, and I know she is going to do the same for you.
You are getting the best principal. Mrs. Johnson loves her students and staff. She makes us work to compete to be the best. Don't take her smile for weakness. She is extremely competitive, and she is going to drive you crazy wanting to win everything. But it does feel good when you reach your goals in the end.
small classroom size; doesn't matter because the conduct in some of them is horrendous Some of the Teachers leave before the busses are out of the parking lot! It has academies but the principle is so disconnected its ridiculous Some of the teachers care.. and if you are to attend please go to the IT dept. Much better regarding academics & the discipline! Athletics is disorganized & the coaches allow the players to play 'me' ball... no teamwork taught.... If I could start over with choosing, it wouldn't begin here.... keep looking
I graduated from Southside Comprehensive High School. Southside prepared me for college in which I graduated from Morris Brown College 2003. I am not teaching 5th grade.
