I did a mistake by putting my son in this school and didn't care much because my son had private tutoring class. I felt teacher was not good in 5th grade so transferred to other school.
We have had a tremendous experience at Jackson Elementary. Both of my children started there in kindergarten and they are getting an excellent education. The teachers are friendly and really enjoy being with kids. They do a good job of working with different learning styles instead of relying on a one-size-fits all approach. Though it's a big school, it really does feel like a family and I feel good having my kids learn in such a safe, nurturing environment.
Jackson is a wonderful school. My daughter has loved her first three years and has been challenged and supported. The teachers are caring and receptive. We are excited for our second child to begin attending Jackson this year and look forward to many more fantastic years.
Jackson is an amazing school. My 2 kids have been there since Kindergarten and the teachers and administration have made our experience really great. The principal always says "hi" and welcomes me in. The school has a real family feeling.
The new Principal is a joke. The worst I have ever had to deal with. She only gives the richer kids the time a day. I truly cannot wait to get my child out of that school.
Jackson Elementary is an amazing school lead by a great Principle. I have been here as a parent for 11 years. THis is my last year with a child year and it will bittersweet.
A dedicated staff of caring people. I have had a great time there. I have enjoyed working with them to educate my daughter.
Jackson Elementary school has been a wonderful school for both my children. We have been attendance from Kinder - 5th grade and are tremendously pleased with the outstanding teachers, principal and staff. We feel they truly care about the whole child.
My child is an A student in the 4th grade. We are very happy with the teacher staff they are great. They provide challenging academic program. They truly care about students. The Leadership staff are great as well. The administrative/receptionist staff always welcome you very friendly and very helpful.
We really miss the school .This is a 'great school ' indeed and deserves 5 stars.My son was in 3rd grade here when we left the school and moved to California.The Plano ISD is truly dedicated to the progress of the children & so is the school.Go Jackson go..!
This is the second year my child is at this school. Kindergarten was all fun, especially after a montessori background. The K teachers were nice and helped both parents and kids adjust to the school. But 1st grade is a whole new story. I haven't seen any progress in math or english. My kid's current teacher doesn't communicate with us even when we send requests. Homework either shows up or not. Reading briefcases are sent at random ( these supposedly are 'above and beyond' the curriculum, when asked about the randomness. But the kindergarten teacher used to do this regularly and tailored to each student's ability) .
Jackson Elementary is providing a wonderful learning and growing experience for my children. Both started kindgarten here. My oldest is now in 5th grade and my youngest in 1st grade. The teachers throughout the years have all been wonderful. I have felt we were team and together we worked through concerns as they arose. This year has been the best yet for both my children. My 5th grader's year is a direct result of her 5th grade teacher. She motivates and encourages my child academically and for postive social interaction. The PTO is very strong and the school staff appreciates this involvement. The current principal is very involved and supportive. There are numerous after school activities as well as family activities throughout the year. This school actively promotes family involvement to assist with building a strong educational and social foundation for the children.
