My son has been at Jackson for four years and I must say that if there was anyway we could have moved him we most definitely would have, my son has been stabbed,hit in the face by a parent volunteer, been racially discriminatd against and bullied !!!! This school is a joke ! Recently, i have had to call the school board because they refused to let the kids inside the school during the negative degree temperatures until 7:45 and they are supposed to be let inby 7:30.Today I find out that our kids are expected to be able to work in freezing cold classrooms because they wont turn up the heat .This school gets alot of funding from the state so what's the problem??? If there is any possible alternative to putting your child in this school then I would advise you to enroll them elsewhere. And let's also mention the disgusting lunches, prisoners eat better than our kids.They took the salad away because its too expensive, does that tell you anything????

I'll be the first to say that originally, I was not a big fan of the school. I removed my oldest from the school and placed him in a school closer to my job. My youngest, now in 2nd grade, could not be transferred out of our home district and to make it easier, I moved both children to Jackson Elementary. I believe now that the Principal has grown with the school and has high expectations for this lower income school. The teachers are great. I was really impressed with my oldest's 3rd grade teacher. All in all, the school has made many improvements and I'm glad my children attend..
