I was a school-based sub under Gladys Calhoun (Principal) at Jackson Academy for many years. It is the best school in the district. The staff raises the bar with high expectations so it is a great springboard for young children to learn how to be disciplined and achieve the desired results. Responsible parents who work along with the faculty will see the best results and ensure their children get a good education.

Jackson is very family oriented school. They care of there students like one of their own. I can honestly say the principal and vice-principle work together to achieve the goals of the students first. I recommend this school highly. After this school is the problem. Choosing a middle school is the hardest task.
