PRIVATE SCHOOL APPLICATIONS
Parents, we are receiving several forms for private schools and we want to ensure that we are able to accurately articulate the information about your child. We all know that our students are more than test scores and that they are all unique individuals who all shine in different ways. Please take a moment to tell us more about your child beyond their scores by filling out the google form below. While we know your child as a "student at Jackson", there are always aspects of their personalities we don't always see. All Private School applications are due by Jan 10th to allow time to complete. We will do our best to complete all applications received after Jan 10th by Feb 1st, but we cannot guarantee that the deadline will be met.
