George Jackson is the best kept secret for a all boy school. Its a very discipline environment the boys have a alliance to each other and are proud of there relationships, academics and accomplishments. They love the school which makes them love learning. They excel because of the caring staff and small class size. You'll find George Jackson kids as leaders in the most prominent Independent schools thought out the country

I have gone to this school for 5 years, and I have a hard time believing that there is a better school than George Jackson Academy. The teachers care about the students and will go the extra mile to make sure that we are on track, and the school community is very trustworthy. One of the school's main focuses is brotherhood, and at the end of the first month you will know everything about your fellow classmates and students in other grades.The school is very disciplined and at the same time pretty lenient, and all of the administration will make sure that your son will have the best experience possible. This school may be one of the best middle schools you will find, and just about all of my fellow 'brothers' would easily agree.

George Jackson Academy is a great school. It prepares boy for the future. It gives boys the oppertunity to grow and learn things they would not learn any where else.

George Jackson is a school that prepares boys academically and most of all gives opportunities to discover who they are and help them to succeed in their goals. The Head Master and the faculty brainstorms a lot to address issues related to the boys on how they can further improve in terms of teaching.
