Academics at Jackson School

With an emphasis on literacy, math and real-world science, Jackson students build a strong foundation in the core curriculum. To enhance student learning, specialists in music, art, and physical education work with students weekly. Jackson School strives to provide all students with a variety of learning opportunities. We have adopted the Workshop Model and infused it throughout our teaching practices. We provide enrichment opportunities outside the school day as well as  additional academic support through "What I Need" time, tutoring programs, and EL and Special Education services.
