“I am extremely proud of the students, teachers, principal and staff at Jackson Elementary School for their performance that resulted in this very special recognition from the state,” said Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall. “To be one of only 22 schools in the state to be singled out is a tremendous achievement and is something everyone should celebrate.”
Dr. Lorraine Reich is the school’s principal.
