    "This school was really special for a couple years but the principal changed now. Bad things like bullying are hidden so people will think the school is better than it is. If the principal cared about all the parents instead if just the rich white ones who give her money we would be a lot happier. The teachers are all so wonderful. You can't find better teachers. The school has rock band and art and a lot of great things. The principal makes us feel like we don't matter and gets rid of translators. I don't feel welcome in the school anymore like I used to do. She needs to remember how she was the first year she was here."

    "This school is the worst!!!! The principal isn't for the students at all and allows her staff to bully the children. This should have been one of the school that were closed.Teacher bullying doesn't count as it would for student to student! Any type of complaint to the district falls on deaf ears! Hite could careless as long as he stills gets paid. I contacted his office to much dismay. I am so glad we have moved to Atlanta and my children didn't finish their schooling within the Philadelphia District because the children are doomed for failure because the principal and staff make up their own rules. The district needs a universal handbook that all schools must abide by and not allow the staff to dish out different consequences to some students and not others when the same behavior has been displayed! Goodbye to this awful school!!!!!!"

    "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."
