The Jackson/Mann K-8 School community is reflective of the Boston Public Schools and the City of Boston: we are Unique Yet United! We are a caring community, as evidenced by achievement scores, our nurturing and enriching school environment, and core curriculum.
The Jackson/Mann uses a range of social emotional supports to assist children in their development. Included are the wellness project, running and walking clubs, and mental health services.
We welcome students from all over and have a sheltered English instruction (SEI) program K2- grade 8. We are a special education inclusion school, and we have a successful autistic program.
We also have many fabulous partnerships with universities and other agencies.
