Great staff and teachers!! My daughter has had a wonderful experience at Jackson Park and I'm so glad she will be here for another three years!

I am going to miss this school! So is my child! The staff is the *BEST* and make every effort to know you on a first name basis. Since our child only attended through part of 1st grade I am unable to comment on everything, but *LOVED* our teachers up-to now. We will miss them!

I think this school deserves a million stars. My kids really enjoy the school, and our teachers are so down to earth, the staff is super great! They have a smile and a big welcome to jackson park greeting when you walk into that front door. I hope we don't move, cause if we do, I would want to take JP with me!

My son just started at JP, after a move from CA to WA. The staff was so warm and welcoming, making him feel right at home! We are very happy with the school!

This school has my vote for sure. The staff are warm and inviting and the school activites have been a blast. Both my girls attended this school, one for three years and the other for one year. If I had my way they'd be at JP this year. Although, I think the music department could use some serious help, the overall feel of this school is good. I would recommend JP to everyone who is in the area.

I have two children fourth and sixth grade. The staff is wonderful. The principal is right on target. The teachers really care about what happens to the kids. I thank God for Jackson Park.

All 3 of my children attended this school, one has moved to Jr high and the other two are still at JP. This is a VERY caring and wonderful school! We transferred from a really horrible elementary school and I couldn't believe how much of a better quality education they got at JP in comparison. The teachers go above and beyond and the principal and office staff are amazing! My children absolutely adore this school and would dread ever having to leave it.

In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
