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.
