    This school serves mostly the poorer population of our city having a faculty that does a great wonderful job working with these children. Through the dedication of most of the teachers and the administration the school has been successful!!

    Jacox is a wonderful school with a wonderful staff. The staff here provide very instructional techniques to help the students have a better learning experience. My daughter Rachel is in the 5th Grade and she is a A Honor Roll student. My son Robert is in the 3rd grade and he is also a B Honor roll student. My kids are doing very well at Jacox and I would recommend this school to someone else.
