My son is so excited to attend Jackson!
We are extremely please with Jackson and would not change our decision at all. We look forward to our younger child attending in a few years
We had a pretty rough experience at this school. The district is huge and the average student seemed to suffer from a complete lack of parenting. To hear the students tell it, there was rampant sexual activity (and if not, they certainly liked to lie about it - in detail), extreme use of profanity, and a general disrespect for authority. While we did encounter several seemingly good teachers, many had a tenuous hold on their classrooms and if there was a substitute teacher, forget it. The place became a lawless zoo. More than one substitute abdicated full responsibility for the entire class to my child for appearing to be the most stable, articulate, and intelligent, which made her a target for the rest of the students (of course). Completely inappropriate behavior on the part of the student body as well as certain members of the staff abounded, to the extent that we are leaving the house we love for (we hope) greener pastures after only one year. As far as we are concerned, both the educational and the social experience we encountered at Jackson Middle School was completely unacceptable.
My 7th grade son loves this school. Much of this has to do with the excellent band program that builds character, self-esteem and community. As a parent, I would have to say that I have not known a group of teachers who are as dedicated and passionate about what they do at any other schools my children have attended in the city. Jackson is a hidden gem in our neighborhood. Spread the word.
