Jackson School 5

This little school is a hidden gem. We looked at many private schools, many overpriced and the community felt very competitive and stiff. None of the schools with the ridiculous price stickers had 12 kids in one class. The families are nice the class sizes are small and the kids really thrive. Expectations on behavior are high, but it keeps the focus on learning, where it should be.

All it takes is one bad influence - a teacher, a student - and in a climate like Jackson, from what I've seen, that one bad influence can stay and thrive.

My son, Matthew, attended Walnut Park Montessori School for three years including pre-school and kindergarten. He had a wonderful experience and was well prepared to enter Grade 1 over at the Jackson School where he is currently in his final year as a 6th grader. His education at Jackson has been exceptional. My son, John went through the Jackson School and graduated several years ago. He and his classmates were admitted to excellent secondary schools as a result of the strong academic curriculum, small class sizes, and teaching excellence. For our family, the sense of community on the Jackson Walnut Park campus has been an essential feature along with all of the other aforementioned benefits. Julia D. Newton

Jackson School and Walnut Park Montessori provide outstanding foundations for academic success. Students are known, loved and challenged daily to reach their potential in a supportive environment. Our oldest was very well prepared for middle school thanks to the amazing teachers and staff at Jackson and Walnut Park. Kerry N. Boston

Very happy. Have had 3 children attend. Older 2 got into their first choices for middle school. Principal Susan Niden has a great reputation with Admissions at Roxbury Latin, Newton Country Day, Belmont Hill. Great value for the money and a great community of families.

The Jackson School is rated as one of the top academic elementary schools in the Boston Area. The curriculum is challenging and they create and atmosphere that exudes a life-long love of learning. The placements of the graduates are into the top private schools. My children love the school and I have had experience with other schools and none of them come close to The Jackson School

The Jackson School has small class size where every child matters. The expectations are high and the curricullum is challenging. The teachers are excellent and communicative. My children have been at other schools and they have excelled here.
