    This is our first year and I am pleased with my son's teacher. The staff seems to care and correct their mistakes quickly. The students are encouraged to do well by striving to excel in their studies. We are blessed to attend a school where it feels like a second home.

    Jackson is an amazing school with wonderful students parents and teachers. Many Jackson parents are interested in their child's education and the teachers at Jackson are more then willing to go above and beyond to make each child successful.

    Let the CAT-6 scores and all other results included speak for themselves. Having experienced 4 teachers 2 of which came off as unmotivated and their curriculum consisted of simple worksheets and 20 minutes of reading for 2nd and 3rd grade. The school has no extracurricular activities before or after school programs.Two teacher that meet and exceeded expectations were Miss Defelice and Miss Kasten thanks for participating in the education of my child.

    I have two children in Jackson one thing I must say is that special education teacher Susan Rouson is exceptional. She has been nothing short of a miracle. My autistic son would sometimes forget how to spell his name adding and subtracing single digits were difficult for him. He has been in her class 1 1/2yrs since she is the mild special need teacher for 4-6th grade. Not only did she teach my son to tap into his special ability that I never knew he had my son is now very good with numbers he knows his times tables even better then my gate child. He understand and is able to do division and fractions. She also helped his confidence he just loves school and refers to Mrs Rouson as his friend. This is a huge turn around from when he first started. He originaly was very depressed and nothing I could do would help. He hated school and had no friends because he was so afraid of being picked on he just would not even attempt to make friends. Even though he might still get picked on from time to time.. He's alot more confident and learned to let it roll off his back. If I could I would hire this teacher to teach my son througout his entire shool years. If you are lucky enough to get this teacher be thankful she is truly gifted in helping our children.... Thanks again to Mrs Rouson...........
