Big Jackson is a small school in size....but huge at heart! With small class sizes we are able to provide each student with individualized attention in all areas. We offer many educational field trips because students learn best through hands on experiences. 3, 15 minute recesses so kids can have break. Our technology is amazing! About 2 students per computer, SMARTboards, Kindle in each room, and digital recorders for various assignments.
Parent- I am sorry your experience was so poor, but Big Jackson is a great school, might not be a perfect fit for everyone, but we work had to provide a great educational experience for all kids!

Hey parent who said that the school is a joke first of all there has only been 3 field trips this year. They also have education level, they are not trying to save gas by starting earlier they start earlier because they no longer have school on Fridays anymore! Plus BJ has been here for about 100 years and it will stay for another 100. Also all the field Trips they went on have been educational and only half day except for Pando Park also they even give 6th graders a tour of big rapids middle school so they will know where to. They also give 3rd graders dictionaries. Another good thing about the school is that they give the students 3 15 minute recesses everyday for a break. They also do not have any sports like basketball for kids to have so they do not have to quit early to practice for a game...
This school is a joke; they put too much focus on field trips and not enough on keeping the kids in school learning at an appropriate education level. Now they are trying to determine how to save gas money by having the kids start an hour earlier beginning next year just so they can reduce the number of days the kids are actually in attendance. It’s time that this school shuts down and allows the kids to be placed into a larger school district.
