My child went to Jackson and now he is in harvard university!!! I love this school and go tigers
Old school with state of the art academics! What a gem of a academic campus . Great arts program as well! Nothing bad to say..
I was in the GT Program for 7th grade. It was simply Amazing, we had very though teachers and very strict rules. There was not one fight, and i never saw anybody getting bullied. The after school programs were amazing, we had an amazing science Olympiad Team, and even had a student go to national competitions and the Music department was unstoppable. There was a very bad teacher, Whose name started with a Y, and didn't know a thing about math, but she is no longer a 7th grade teacher. Overall, this school is amazing, and is very well prepared to handle the very motivated GT students, who are intellectual superior to all the other students.
Hello, I was a student at Luther Jackson for the seventh and eighth grade.When i was in 6th grade,I remember pondering with my parents about whether to go to Luther Jackson or move and go to a school.I chose to attend LJ.As a student who attended LJMS for all two years without missing a single day (besides the days I missed for orchestra like Districts or Competition trips),I can honestly say that LJ was amazing.I was in the GT program and I felt that LJ was VERY underrated.LJ gained a bad reputation from all the rumors among the parents,but most of those rumors are false.There were hardly any violence.No more than any other school in the county. LJ also had various extracurricular activities.I was in Science Olympiad, MathCounts, Literary Magazine, National Junior Honor Society and a few other clubs. I stayed after about three times every week. I was in orchestra and we got first and best overall @ the Herhsey Music competition.Next year, I will be attending TJHSST, the best public high school in the country.Thus, LJMS is really not a bad school as it is alleged to be.Recently the field got renovated, so that's an extra positive for future LJ tigers as well.Overall, great school.
As a student, I can honestly say that this is an excellent school. This school is quite underrated. There are hardly no gangs or violence as some people suggest and there are almost no cliques. The GT program is tough and the students are very competitive in terms of academics. The after school programs are good and so is the music department. The reason I didn't give this school five stars is because there are a few bad teachers and the administration is unnecessarily strict. I had the choice between attending Jackson or Thoreau, and I can say that Jackson is the better school in my opinion. Overall, terrific school.
Admin isn't great. A few good teachers. Some terrible teachers. Good after school opportunities.
Luther Jackson Middle School is a great school. There are many extra-curricular activities the students can be a part of. The principal is very good, and so are the two vice principals. This school also has an excellent music department.
