Jackson school is place that every kid can call home. Be loved and also being intellectually challenged. The teachers and staff here are second to none of other schools. They are dedicated, professional and caring.Not to mention the newly constructed student center for sports/performing art and community gathering.We feel this school is blessed.

Walnut Park was the best educational decision I ever made for my three children. A caring environment with dedicated staff and a commitment to education. You cannot go wrong here. All three went on to Jackson School which is excellent value.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
