Very impressed by the quality and caring of the teachers and administrators. I truly feel like my children are cared for and about, and taught in a very personal way that applies to their levels of understanding
I am very impressed by the quality of teachers, and the involvement and the depth of our principal Gwen Agna. I am continually amazed by Ms. Agna's educational and real world background and her deep understanding of the needs and demands of the kids she educates. This school would never be the same without her. I never knew what a difference a principal could make.
There is a strong sense of community. Inclusion is not just a buzz word: learners are valued, regardless of their background. There is a strong home/school connection, great leadership, enthusiastic teachers, and every year new innovations manifest at our wonderful school!
It is the best public school in the area. There is a lot of school spirit, and the teachers really care. There is also a tremendous amount of diversity.
Jackson Street School has a wonderful sense of community. The Principle, teachers, and staff are amazing and very dedicated to the students and families.
Excellent Principal which translates to great teachers who care about each and every child.
I am so honored and privileged to be the principal of Jackson St. It is a school with extraordinary staff, families and students.
Kindness, tolerance, amazing diversity, a wonderful, involved and powerful yet friendly principal are only a few of the reasons why I chose to move to this area so my daughter could attend this school with its far-ranging good reputation.
Jackson Street School is a warming and caring place. I am amazed at how much my son has learned this year!
Jackson Street has been a model for the sort of integrated, beautiful, respectful, compassionate, challenging world we hope will one day be achieved everywhere.
The diversity and the 'it takes a village to raise a child' feel of the staff and Jss parents.
wonderful community, amazing teachers and principal and a diverse group of families make this school traditional and progressive all in one!
The principal and teachers create a respectful and nurturing learning environment with a great sense of community and many opportunities for fun. My kids love their school!
Gwen Agna, the principal, and the entire staff have created a school environment that celebrates the strengths and differences of every child there. It is a true community which supports all different ways of learning and helps children believe in themselves and unique abilities.
The principal is wonderful...She really is involved with the kids and their families...The atmosphere is on of total acceptance and love
This is a formidable school! The principal is very dedicated to help all families and to get the best resources for the school, and the teachers are highly prepared, making it a great choice for our kids!
The principal (Gwen Agna) knows every childs name. I find this amazing. The teachers will help you, your family, your extended family, do many things to help. I have cancer and they helped so much for both my children. Neither of my kids go there now and I still can call up and talk to Gwen. This school deserves this award sooooo Much!
