Welcome to Andrew Jackson!
Here at Andrew Jackson Elementary, our goal is to prepare students to achieve academically and maintain a positive mental outlook on life while building high self-esteem while learning the fundamental skills of academic achievement.
To accomplish this, we offer several enrichment courses in addition to our foundational core curriculum, including physical education, music, art, computer technology, library, and guidance. We offer further support such as intervention, English as a Second Language (ESL), and gifted education (GEMS) for students who have unique needs. We believe in helping all students succeed!
Water day is Thursday, September 19 from 5:30-7:00. There will be a huge slip and slide, water balloon fight, and water relay races. There is a $5 admission fee for unlimited play. The proceeds of this event will support our PTO. We're going to have a blast with families, friends, and staff.
