This school is so amazing! I went to Jo Mackey from K-3rd grade and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The teachers were so nice to me I can't even express it. I definitely recommend this school for anyone who wants a good education. The students were so nice to me and they have so many programs as well. I also heard that is now K-8, therefore more teachers and more learning! I miss all the staff so much and can't wait to see them again in the future. The food there was so extravagant, and the cafeteria was so clean, along with the rest of the school. The teachers listen to your problems and try to help you as hard as they can. They teach you life skills and how to be a good person in general. I am now in Jr High school and really learned things from this school. Another thing to add, if you are struggling with getting food at home, they provide food to take home. We went to senior centers, gave shoes to unfortunate children, and also went to neighboring houses of the school and advertised our school garden, which was a good way to teach students about compost and how to reuse and save the environment. If any of my former teachers are reading this, keep up the good work. I miss you all and hope I can see you all again. To all viewers, please stay safe during these hard times.
