Mission

The Jackson School District is a partnership of dedicated staff, learners and community members committed to developing the unique abilities of each student through compelling learning experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. Our comprehensive, engaging and technology-enriched programs inspire, educate and motivate students to become independent, creative and critical thinkers who will thrive in a diverse, evolving, global society.

Academics

Our comprehensive curriculum is fully aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and mirrors the value the Jackson community places on an educational experience that highlights the humanities, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), literacy and the fine and performing arts. We offer diverse instructional opportunities in core subjects and in the fine and performing arts, which are essential to providing an effective and well-rounded education.

Programs

The Jackson Childcare Academy is a safe and nurturing program for children ranging from K-8th Grade. A dedicated staff of certified teachers and paraprofessionals create rich and rewarding experiences filled with age-appropriate activities, homework assistance, and warm caring relationships. Children are involved in small group learning activities while forming positive relationships that promote growth and achievement.

Parents

Parent involvement is actively encouraged through parent-school organizations within all ten Jackson schools. All parents have access to key information, such as grades and schedules through the online parent portal. Additionally, the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) provides input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities and encourages proactive collaboration between parents and school district personnel regarding matters pertaining to special education.

Facilities

Jackson Students benefit from investments the district and Board of Education have made in our technology, our curriculum and our facilities - all of which will have a real and lasting impact on how our students learn. Through these investments and with the commitment and dedication of our teachers, staff and parents, we are committed to advancing student achievement and to being an active leader in the evolution of education.
