History and Facilities
The facilities at Andrew Jackson Elementary School are a circular pod design constructed in 1968. The school is located in the north-central area of the city of Jackson on approximately 20 acres of gently sloping land and is adjacent to a City of Jackson practice baseball field. The building consists of five circular pods which surround the library/media center and auxiliary classrooms. An annex building houses six classrooms as well as a gym/multipurpose room. In addition, two portable buildings house a fourth-grade classroom and music classes.
Our goal at Andrew Jackson Elementary School is to prepare students to achieve academically and maintain a positive mental outlook on life while building high self-esteem that will encourage learning the foundational skills of academic achievement. To accomplish this, the core curriculum at Andrew Jackson Elementary School includes Reading with the components of balanced literacy, English, spelling, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition to these basic subjects, we offer several enrichment courses including physical education, music, art, computer technology, library, and guidance. Further opportunities include reading intervention classes, special education classes, English as a second language (ESL) classes, a tutoring program, and a gifted program (GEMS).
