WELCOME TO JACKSON ELEMENTARY!

¡BIENVENIDOS A LA ESCUELA JACKSON!

Jackson Elementary is Nebraska's only all Dual Language school serving students in kindergarten through sixth grade. We also offer full-day Pre-Kindergarten. Our dual language classrooms serve English speakers, Spanish speakers, and bilingual students to become bilingual, bi-literate, and prepared for success in a global society. Our students spend 50% of each day in English and 50% of each day in Spanish. Students study 50% of all core content in English and 50% in Spanish. Our staff strives to meet the needs of all learners by providing rigorous and differentiated instruction with a focus on language acquisition. Our parents attend family events, parent meetings, and volunteer at least 20 hours each school year. With staff and parent support, we empower our students to put forth their best effort so that they can meet their academic, social, and personal goals.   

We are Jackson! Believe! Achieve! Succeed!

¡Somos Jackson - Cree, Logra, Triunfa!
