My son has been attending this goldmine for the past two years. It is a breath of fresh air to know that teachers, administrators, and most of all parents are working to ensure our children are successful. This empoverished city has a jewel that must be recognized.

I'm a parent. My child has been enrolled at A.M. Jackson for going on three years now. It has a healthy enviroment for children to learn. My daughter can't wait until she gets home to tell me about all of the exciting things she learned at school. The faculty and staff are well oragnizedand have a passion for teaching.

Jackson is the best schhool in East St. Louis, I believe. I am a parent who believes in the importance of quality education. I think my children definitely receive a great education at Jackson. I am also pleased with the cultural awareness that the students receive. My children learn about their own culture and the importance of African Americans in the history of the U.S. I am pleased with their education. The teachers that my children had/have are excellent. They push the children to their educational maximum. Johnson, Crawford, Placide, Brown, Eckford, Danyshar, Crosby, and Dillard are excellent.

I started at A.M. Jackson when I was in the 3rd grade. The school had been closed down for several years before they moved the gifted program to it and it showed. There was no recess or any other form of play-time for the children. I believe that is unnatural and unhealthy for the grade levels housed at Jackson. But, other than the poor condition of the building and the lack of recess I received an invaluable education. Eddie Jackson was my principal and a wonderful one. He was firm but fair and I realized that in the 5th grade. I recently graduated from college and during those 4 years at my university I often found myself recalling and relying on the education I received at A.M Jackson. It's a shame I received a more valuable education at Jackson than at East Side and Lincoln combined, but I'm thankful for Jackson.

I think A.M. Jackson is the best school in District #189. My son recently graduated (June 2003) and we had a wonderful relationship with the educators as well as the principal. I understand this may Principal Eddie Jackson's last year, he is retiring. I do know that the school will be missing a great leader. I know him personally, and was very well satisfied with the performance of most teachers there. If I had to recommend a school to anyone, it would be A.M.Jackson.

My kids have been here for three years and have given them the education they need to get around the world through life.
