"We love that our son is not only getting an excellent education at Jackson Christian School, driven by project-based learning and technology, but also receiving it in a Christ-centered environment with educators and staff that love and pray over the students." Jennifer W.


"Jackson is lucky to have one of the few public Montessori schools in the state. We have seen our child soar under the unique perspective of Montessori, guidance from their outstanding teachers, and the support of the community." Erin T.


"What excites me the most about the University School of Jackson is the opportunity for my children to develop to their full potential  not only in academics,  but in athletics, fine arts and leadership as well.  USJ truly  prepares students not only for college, but for life beyond that." Ryan P.




 
 

“We chose Sacred Heart of Jesus high school for our two daughters because we wanted a Catholic, Christian environment for our children to learn in.  The teachers and administration truly believe in their mission and it shows in our daughters’ love for school.  We have found the education to be academically challenging and it is rounded out with a variety sports and art programs that our children are able to participate in. Sacred Heart truly challenges their students to reach their full potential.”


"Community Montessori School is a hidden gem in West Tennessee. To have a school like CMS in the public school realm is a real blessing to Jackson. The teachers and staff truly love the kids and it shows in all aspects of their education." Jason C.


"Kids are met where they are and drive their own learning at Community Montessori. NEMS academic academy gave our kids the middle school experience to prepare them for high school and Madison Academic has challenged our daughter academically." Kelly N.


“When my husband and I were looking at private schools for our children’s education, we were so excited to find that Jackson had several private schools that had great reputations and outstanding academic scoring.  We began touring all of the schools to see what environment we thought our children might fit in best, as they all seemed to thrive in academic excellence.  When we walked into St. Mary’s Catholic School, it felt like home.  The school has a warm, kind and welcoming atmosphere where the faculty and staff all looked so excited to be there!  We were thrilled to find out that the school had deep roots, as it was founded in 1878, and that they taught children from 2 years old through the 8th grade.  Every classroom we visited the children showed courtesy, kindness and school spirit and they spoke with confidence and conviction! The classical approach to teaching plus the early integration of Latin in the classroom sealed the deal and made St. Mary’s School an easy decision for our family.  Today, 5 years later, I can still honestly say how happy we are to be part of the SMS family, and we encourage everyone to come visit and experience the excellence of St. Mary’s School. “ MaryJo H.
