Andrew Jackson Academy: I agree with another post with regard to bullying, 3 children bullied my child, one bully whose grandmother is the president of the PTA. Nothing was done about it, and my son suffered psycologically because of it. I faxed a bullying form to the principal and the administrator and didn't recieve any feedback. I will be going to the board about this.

My sons currently (2011-2012) attends this school. This school has a lot of bullying going on and the principal and teacher does nothing about it. Basically, the students run the whole school. My oldest son had two head traumas at this school. I'm very disappointed in the schools effort to make sure our children are in a safe environment to receive a better education over all. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. What I'm saying is...that if there is a student or students that are out of control, the teachers should write them up or send them to the office. I found it unfair to the students who wants to learn and the parents who work hard at raising respectful kids. I believe it is still the school's responsibility to help our children to become, productive, responsible, educated young man and woman.

This is my daughters second year at Andrew Jackson Middle School. As a parent you have to really make sure your child is doing what they are supposed to be doing. Because the teachers just have too much to deal with in the classroom. I would suggest making frequent contact with the teachers. Most of the teachers are willing to give you updates on your child. The safety of the children as they are leaving the building is another issue. It's not as bad as last year, but there are still fights after school, that's being taped by the students and put on U-Tube. Some of the kids are off the hook. I'm so grateful that this is my daughters last year. I would not recommend this school to anyone. But if your child has to attend this school, please stay on top of the situation.

If the leadership is not competent, the teachers nor the children will be proficient. The principal talks alot and not always about the right things at the right time. The school has a lot of disrespectful and disobedient students which makes it very hard for the teachers to teach their classes. There are several magnificent teachers in the school but it's hard for them to teach and monitor the extra activities in the hallways. The school is not safe for you can walk in the building at anytime and and cameras are recording which does not prevent incidents to occur. Because there is a lack of parents involvement and not visiting and walking the school during school hours, this problem will never change for the leadership is not strong enough to make the change, it starts at home with us the parents!

Being a parent that has a child who attends Andrew Jackson is a difficult task. Kids will be kids, they are going to rebel. I was called to the school to find out that they wanted to implement a reward program to the kids that did nothing all year and during the fourth quarter if they received a grade of C they would be passed to the next grade. I also asked if the teachers had e-mail addresses where they could post homework assignments so that parents could check when their child says they donot have any homework. I check my child everyday. I was told no and that it was a good idea. But its a new year and still no e-mail addreses.

I was a student at Andrew Jackson for both my seventh and eighth grade years. The school had gotten better when I got to the eighth grade. Our new principal was an excellent leader and he cared about us very dearly. The teachers I must say were more involved with the students this year and I think all the students liked that. I was a cheerleader there, and extracurricular activities were better this year. And this was the second year we had to wear mandatory uniforms. They enforced this code so much that I don't think none of the students really wanted to break the rules. Over all, I enjoyed my time there, and I recommend parents to send their kids there.

My daughter attended Andrew Jackson Middle School this year.The leadership from the principal on down to the teachers was questionable. The teachers yelled and cursed at the children and to get there points across. I am sure they soon found out this did not work because the students only became more angry and disobiendent. My daughter succeeded well in the school due to my guidance and interaction in with the teachers and staff. I would rate the school on a 5 on the scale of 1 to 10. If your child attends this school be attentive in there school interactions and they will be successful.

Now lets talk about the books (what books there are no books) at least not for everyone. Most books are photo copied. I didn't even receive a Language Arts book. The bugs have tooken over. Its terrible don't mistake the roaches for rasins. How do you focus on your work when there is a fly buzzing in your ear. Now back to the heat. Did I mentioned some classes have no windows therefor making the classroom even hotter. Subs get no respect from the students as well as the teachers. Schools activities are limits as well as not funded well. The are no sanditory napkins provide from the girls during there time of the month. Let me tell you how long some of these kids stay back there are 17 year olds in middle school thats crazy but they keep staying back. Don't allow your child here!!!!

Andrew Jackson Middle School provides no saftey for thier students. The students that attend Andrew Jackson has to walk over a mile to school with no supervision. There are students being jump and harassed. The administration has a non caring attitude for the students. I do not recommed any parents to allow their child to attend this school. Children cannot learn if they have a constant fear within the school!
