    "My school has become the place to go! We have so much to offer our students and our connections with BalletX, The Rock School Musicopia, The Phila. Orchestra and Phila. Museum of Art (just a few programs ) allow our students to partake of a wide variety of the Arts. The community and University partnerships that have grown in Jackson continue to provide a steady structure in these tumultuous times for public education. We love our school!"

    "I am a former high school teacher and now run a teacher education program at Penn. I've been in and worked with lots of schools. As a parent and educator I'm very happy to have this public school in our neighborhood. Something special is going on here - a great leader and dedicated staff members are working together along with parents and members of the community to build a strong instructional program. You can tell a lot about a school from the energy in the halls when you enter, and this school has great energy. Every time I've been in the building I've seen happy kids engaged in learning."

    "This school is a hidden gem in the neighborhood with great teachers and an ever expanding activities for students and the community. The rock band HOME is amazing, and a great outlet for all students. They recently received funding to expand the roof top garden, and begin a new project for a playground in the school yard! This is the 3rd year with principal Kaplan, and the school is thriving under her leadership."
