Description: A focus on intellectual curiosity, creativity and a strong academic curriculum distinguish Jackson Middle School as a Leonard Bernstein 'Artful Learning' Leadership School. This approach is based on what good teachers already know: learning springs from engaging experience, children inquire when they are interested, they start to love learning when they actually create something and they begin to master subjects when they reflect thoughtfully on what they understand.
