The school is too strict , the rules are intended to keep control, but end up being like a military, and stifle students fun to learn, and enjoy school. The teachers are mean and do not really teach- the principal is uninvolved, and appears to have an agenda for 'projects' not running a school- I never see him in the halls with kids- or involved in student successes- he lets the clique teachers over run him and he does not ask parent input for the new behavior plan that requires students to walk all around the building and not talk- not talk in the lunch room, and Not talk in class hallways, only when spoken to--- way to strict

I enrolled my son just this year into kindergarten. I liked the ethnic diversity even though he is very much a minority. The teachers do seem to hold children accountable for their actions and the principal follows through as well. My complaints are that my son, again is in kindergarten. He is not rude or mean or even disrespectful however he is a talker. He is made to sit by himself facing a wall and frequently he is asked to leave his classroom to go be with another random teacher because he needs time to 'think.' Also, latchkey offeres honeybuns for breakfast and coco puffs for snack at 4:30. I feel like the children are not given enough quallity attention but instead are made to feel like an inconvenience.

My daughter started at Jackson in 2006. Jackson Elementary was open to students in 2004. Although my daughter was kinda scared at the ethnic diversity, she ended up okay with it. The education is a little below average in my opinion. The teachers try to teach, but the parents are not holding the children up to the excellence that they can achieve. My son will not be attending Jackson, but my daughter will be staying due to ethnic differences in my children.
