  • My 2 kids have been going to Liza Jackson since it first opened. I now have one in 8th grade and one in 6th. They have had tremendous support of the staff over the years. The teachers are more than willing to keep the parents informed of progress or problems. The educational techniques used are the best. Their bussing program is admirable with the children's safety foremost. The school nurse is a gift straight from God. The cafeteria has always had had a well balanced variety of foods for breakfast and lunch. I feel fotunate that this school opened its doors at the right time for my kids to have benefited from all it has to offer.

    Thanks

  • When I initially enrolled my child at the school, I did so under the pretense that it would be an educational experience, and a compliment to the capability of my child. But it was not. The staff is nearly incompetent and ignorant of any mannerisms toward my child (who is of ethnic decent and mimics such). They were consistently rude when I attempted to address the matter of their lack of racial diversity. In every sense, they lack the ability to not only cope, but accept that a world exists outside of a vanilla wafer.

    I have since removed my child.
