Jackson is a great school and it was the second school I went to and I loved being there and I haope that the new children of ABJ enjoy the school like I did everytime I walked thougth that door When I walked though the door I felt safe from everything that walked thouth the doors of ABJ. He is a thing I picked up 30 years from now it won't matter what shoes you wore how your hair looked or the jeans you brought What will mater is what you learned and how you used it. - Posted by Student/Alumni
