About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Jesse Jackson Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2009, Jesse Jackson Academy had 23 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Texas average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Jesse Jackson Academy Reviews
I actually attended JJA back in 2002-2003 and I enjoyed it.It was much better for me being someone that was in previous AP classes from the beginning of middle school until attending Jesse Jackson because I liked the fact that I could work at my own pace and that I did. Its just unfortunate that this school has undergone as many issues as they did because there is a benefit in Charter schools if you ask me, it just all depends on the individual.-Loved My Teachers-
