    The teacher quality varies a lot here-one year you got a really caring teacher and another year one that does not care at all. Overall though they are still pretty good. The staff and principal are not very friendly and easily accessible especially Mrs. D'Alto who is always complaining and bashing about some parents whenever I walk in the school office. Just a lot of negative energy in that room.

    My son went to school here. There was bullying going on in as early as 1st grade. I was surprised that the teachers did not pay any attention to it and inform any parents. When I discussed with the teacher she said she had no idea. Good strategy to pretend no knowledge We were relocating to another state so didn t have time to take it up with the principal. From what I had heard from other parents the principal takes no feedback and mostly believes they are doing the best (read this as we are a great school everything we do is right and you parents have no experience just leave it to us and yeah we have no room for improvement). It s probably a cultural thing passed on from the boss.

    This school is great but the staff and the principal try to push any student to special education to get more fund for the school from State of New York

    This school is terrific! The staff is caring concerned and provides an academically challenging environment for the students. The music program is fabulous The focus on social-emotional growth is strong and there are specialty programs like second language study in all grades. My child is very happy. I am pleased with the staff across the board. The principal is doing something right!

    Jackson Elementary School is an excellent school. The staff provides and warm and friendly atmosphere providing support and academic excellence. The principal and teachers are accessible supportive and concerned about student well-being. A high-lighted program this year is Peacekeepers which teaches students that a safe peaceful environment is created through positive choices and good communication skills. I am impressed with the school environment having dealt with parents students and staff.
