We requested to be moved to this school almost year ago. We have had nothing but awesome experiences here. The leadership and staff are dedicated to the students learning experience and safety. My daughter has grown scholastically & socially by leaps and bounds in 10 months. I will be sad to say goodbye to move on to Middle School.

Our daugther is in all day kindergarden this year and she is already reading thanks to her absolutely wonderful, warm, kind teacher. Every day, after school while at home, my daughter sings a whole variety of songs that she has learned in her class , and she has all these little books that are actually little coloring books that they made in class that illustrate the songs. She loves these books and sits and reads them and then sings what she has read every night. Reading and learning are made to be fun and enjoyable for her, and overall, there is so much positive reinforcement. We are very happy with the teacher and the school.

We moved to Jackson this year (2009) and it is an excellent fit for my child. Being an alternative family we had several unresolved issues at a previous school but have not had a single negative experience here. The staff is phenomenal and they treat the students with kindness and encourage diversity acceptance. The kids are great and fun to be with. What I love most is that the staff allows the students to be kids while teaching them with positive reinforcement rather than less effective discipline. The students actually like their teachers and most of all, they like their principal. Wow-what a concept!

Jackson is a wonderful school. We moved into the area this school year and have been impressed with the warmth and helpfulness of all the teachers and staff. It's evident that parents are involved and supportive and my daughter loves it here. However, having moved from a district where the art and music programs had greater emphasis, I am disappointed that Jackson does not offer many opportunities in this regard. But overall, we've had a very positive experience here.

I am so sad to be moving out of state, this school has been so great, the staff is warm and welcoming, and it is such a positive learning environment for my kids. Last year when my oldest started kindergarten he had trouble with his speech, he started meeting with the speech teacher twice a week and has made so much improvement. They also have music class, gym and library once a week. The school counselor comes in once a week to talk about positive action. It's just all together a great school!

Jackson Elementary is a personal school. The entire staff is very loving of all the children and it shows. My children have gone to Jackson from kidergarten till now and I am so sad to move out of the district. I have a 3rd grader who is behind in his learning skills and the teachers have gone the extra mile to get him caught up with the rest of the class. There did not seem to be alot of challenge for my 1st grader though, he caught on to reading and math real quick and started to get board in Kindergarten. There was not much challenge for him.

I am very pleased with this school :) I pulled my son out of a montessori school because I didnt think he was getting what he needed. In the course of less than two months he was sounding out words and starting to read, had improved his counting skills up to 50 where before he could only count to 10 and barely....(He is in Kindergarden) In addition the parent support is amazing and all of the staff are more than helpful! I am so happy!

My son transfered into Jackson from another Snohomish school. My son also has Aspergers syndrome, and his IEP time out of the class room for special assistance has been cut from 90 minutes a day at school X, to 15 minutes at Jackson. This has greatly increased my sons self-esteem, which is really important for a special education child. The staff who have worked with my son are great, and keep fairly up-to-date on special education issues.

I have not been very pleased with the results of my children's education here at Jackson. As an educator myself, I understand the difficulties of the demographics but I believe that poor leadership has had an adverse effect on parent involvement and student achievement. I am pulling my children out to send them to a montessori school.
