    I love working at Page Jackson. Not only that the school won the National Health Award but we are concerned about our students education. We give them the best so that they can excell in life.

    I think Page Jackson is a great school. My daughter had just enrolled the school about a month ago. She had just came to the States after spending 5 years in China so she doesn't speak any English at all. However all the teachers were really wonderful to her and gave her lots of workbooks and other fun activities for her to take home. She had master the 123's and the ABC's and other simple words. Also she loves to go to school every morning. All in all this is a wonderful school

    I am from Maryland and the school system is horribly disorganized at page jackson. The school has lost several of my orders and then keeps asking for more money. If they had not lost money to begin with maybe they would not need to ask. I also feel that the good teachers do not stay and the rest just dont give these kids attention. It hurts the kids in the end.

    I have two children in page jackson and both love going to school. Neither had had preschool exposure and have made the leap into all day public school with ease! the teachers have been wonderful and i am very impressed with the curriculum! the fact that my children are learning anticipating going to school even on the weekends are making friends and are extremely happy makes me feel good about their learning experience at page jackson.

    My children both went to this school K-3. Page Jackson is a really nice school with loving teachers & staff that care about the children. One of the programs they have for the students is called the 'Sunshine award' given for good deeds etc and is presented in a ceremony in front parents students and staff. My daughter recieved it for helping others in the class. It really boosted her self esteem! Over all this is a warm nuturing enviroment.

    I think that Page Jackson should be more creative with learning. Boys and girls learn differently and this school thinks in the box and I am not impressed at all. I am thinking seriously in to a private school. My son learned more in preschool in 1/2 a day than he has in this school a full day. Matter of a fact he has forgotten the things he knew.He has actually said he didn't want to go to school and that never was said in preschool. Children should be awarded and praised not reprimanded for just about any thing and given colored cards for discipline in front of their peers.Children are expected to act like adults as children. Very stressful to children and we know how many children are on medicine today to 'calm them down so we adults can deal with them!' Stress can strink the brain!
