The school is committed academic excellence and that often requires radical change. The school requires staff to be educational rockstars who will be 110% committed to student success. That commitment is matched with professional development and opportunities for advancement. Being a Panther is an honor and our teaching staff is amazing. The investment of our staff is always about student growth and improving as a teacher. It is not easy work, but very worth it. We are not about making excuses but coming up withs solutions.


Jackson Charter School Administrator Review

Working at Jackson is great. If you have a passion for teaching and want to be a part of student success, then Jackson is the place. Educational Rockstars are what we are called, because we go above and beyond. Our work is not easy and many students need additional supports. The most enjoyable part of my day is seeing student growth in spite of many obstacles and a relentless commitment to student and staff success. The administration is fair and wants to see everyone succeed.
