I went to Jackson School and recently returned as a parent of a child who is there. I cannot tell you how much the school had changed--and yet, the caring, high educational expectations, and belief that all children can learn to behave, handle responsibility, develop their talents, and be part of a community that makes a difference has continued to shine forth there. When I left Jackson, I was 1-2 years ahead of my peers in both math and reading at the private school I then entered. The connecting of science and social studies, music and art, have been of ongoing and continuing benefit to me through the years (and yes, there were things on my ITBS tests and SAT's that I was first introduced to at Jackson). Keep up the good work, and go, Bulldogs!
