Jackson/Mann K-8 School 2

Jackson Mann isn't really one of the best schools to send kids at. I'm a former student from there and graduated from eighth grade a few years ago , I can say you barely learn anything there. Only 20 % of the teachers are good teachers, while the rest can hardly go through a lesson, and to top it off the principal and administrators do an awful job over there. Once a good school in the 1990s and 2000s is now a place to tell you keep your students away , I only gave it 2 stars because some of people over there were awesome. You'll regret sending your kid to Jackson Mann

This school should be closed immediately and anyone who disagrees is either one of the many bad teachers there or one of the (sorry if this offends you) retarted parents that send their children their. I am a former student who attended it in the second grade. In all honesty, it was the worst year of my life. I got in two fights (without looking for trouble)and learned almost nothing all year. At the end of the year, my mom took me out of there and put me in a charter school (catholic). If your hesitant about the money, don't be. Financial aid is there if you need it and I was smart so I got scholarships. After that, I took the ISEE, got into the high 90s (percentile), and applied to a number of great schools. Schools that Jackson Mann kids (the truth hurts) could only dream of attending. I got into many of them and made my decision. Now I'm a sophmore at that school, playing three sports, and thriving in my studies. I can truely from the bottom of my heart, say the none of this would have happening if my mom didn't take me out of Jackson Mann. If there aren't many options in your area, my sister went to hamilton and edison middles schools. Just stay away from Jackson Mann. Please!

If you value your childs sanity do not let him or her go to that school. If you don't want you child to be confronted with with drugs and violence do no let he or she go to the Jackson mann. Though my years in the Jackson Mann were AWSOME!!!! I didn't say educational but awsome!!! P.S. Some teachers don't raven teach anything and some are just awsome.

My daughter attends this school and my son will attend next year. A wonderful teaching staff, and a wonderful principal. One of the few great Boston elementary schools.

Three my children have gone to Jackson Mann since they were 5 years old. It is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader. Thank you Jackson Mann for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!
