Jackson Middle School

Our Philosophy:
We consider ourselves to be strong in all disciplines aiming to focus students on the changing world and workforce they will face in a few years. Focusing our efforts on the local economy and the global market, our school aims to bring all disciplines together focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as the anchor. We also use various collaborative approaches to help our students work in teams to learn together.

Mission:
Our mission is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognize and achieve their fullest potential through individualized strategies to student success.

Jackson Middle School is a place where:

…everybody is welcomed and encouraged to serve one another …everybody will have the opportunity to grow through hands on science and technology …we respect and care for everyone and everything around us …everybody will receive interventions tailored to the individual student’s needs at all levels.
