Back in the 1990s? way too much. It was overburdening and extremely ridicolous but then again my IQ levels were extremely high and that for whatever reason wasn't enough to get me out of being inundated in paperwork. My test scores were high but I had low grades because TOO MUCH HOMEWORK. Nobody ever realized that this meant I wasn't being challenged by the course work.
Again I was repeatedly insulted harassed and Denigrated by students, if I did report this they would tell me that that's just part of life and I needed to "learn to get along." with "people I don't like" and "that's just life." Needless to say my Income levels are rising i'm an investor and I've found later in life If I don't get along with you I don't have to put up with you for even a second.
Great teachers, great community and support! Interim principal was not my favorite person for some poor decisions, but looking forward to what the new principal has to offer. I only wish the tons of kindergarteners could get there space in the school back instead of the 10 children who will now use it. Seems like the needs of a few outweighed the needs of many more on this decision. I feel moving every class in the school was a rash and poor decision.
We are so happy that our children are at Jackson Elementary. It is truly a community of hard working staff , involved parents and really great kids. A lot of the school staff live right in the neighborhood and their kids attend the school adding to the tight knit community atmosphere. The teachers put everything into our children helping each one out as if each child was their own. The teachers and parents put on so many great after school programs (chess, lego, art, music). The PTA is such a strong supporter of our school, each grade is able to learn and experience so many great things ( OMSI, Oregon Zoo, Theater productions, Outdoor School, BIZ Town) thanks to PTA. Our school calendar is also filled with so many fun family friendly community nights (back to school social, fall festival, movie night, bingo night, spring fling, family games night, moms & muffins, dads & donuts). Our children are thriving at Jackson, thank you to all of the teachers and staff!!
We can not say enough wonderful things about Jackson Elementary School!! The teachers, the staff, the parents who volunteer, the families who make this such a wonderful community. The teachers do their very best to help each student if they need more help or to be challenged more. The after school programs that are offered are wonderful. The family friendly evenings are the best to get to know more families that you see in passing everyday. So thankful for the great teachers, great staff and great PTA that Jackson Elementary has.
I have 3 children that have gone (or are going) through this school starting at Kindergarten. The teachers, and staff are incredibly friendly. The kids, and other parents are also friendly, and everyone in PTA is committed to make Jackson School a great educational institution. My only minor concern is the interim principle, but this should be resolved soon.
