We came to this school from Carrollton and I was slightly aprehensive, hoping to get my kids into Jackson. That being said I have been more that pleasantly surprised with this school, the teachers and the rest of the staff. The teachers are great, very in communication. The new pricipal is awesome, he met with me when I had concerns, handled them promptly and followed up to let me know the outcome. The school offers soccer, cheerleading and many other after school activities with minimal cost. My biggest complaints are the lack of consistency with their music/art classes, one of my daughters rarely goes to art and the other hasn't been to music, only because they don't have funding for fulltime music and art teacher, and also the breakdown of general communication to parents; folders are inconsistent, announcements get left out, etc. They do leave messages about a lot of things but I don't always catch them in time, so you have to be proactive to stay in the loop. Overall it's a great school, good student to teacher ratios, a fresh new principal, great programs, a garden and more. I love it, I'm glad we ended up here, we're definitely gaining from the funding and attention given.
