Transferred our child from a local private school and we could not be happier that we made the change. The teachers and principal made the transition easier on our child and on us. The other parents welcomed us and made us feel comfortable that we were making the right decision. Amazed at how much our child has learned in this first year. Look forward to a couple more years at this school.
My child attended a private school for pre-school and kindergarten and I agonized over whether to keep her at the private school or to send her to Jackson. I decided to send her to Jackson and have been delighted with that decision from the first day she started at Jackson. My daughter's teachers have been wonderful. Academically, the school has kept our child engaged and challenged with an array of great programs in all subject matter areas. I am pleased with the range of additional activities the school offers, including the music and art programs, the Spanish program and the Learning Resource Center. The vast majority of the parents I have met through the school are very involved with the school and with their children. Simply put, I am extremely pleased with the quality of the education my child is receiving at Jackson.
Safe learning environment, but our class size for the last couple of years has been in high 20s. Very enthusiastic teachers, but not necessarily consistency with progression grade to grade in terms of expectations or assignments.
