PAGE-JACKSON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HISTORY
Page-Jackson Elementary school was built in 1976. It is named after two former black educators in Jefferson County, Mr. Littleton Page and Mr. Philip Jackson. Our current building was the first solar powered school in the surrounding area when it was built.
The students of Page-Jackson primarily live in or in close proximity to, the county seat of Charles Town. Although mostly rural in nature, Charles Town has become a community richly populated with families who have lived in the area for many generations, as well as with families who have moved to the area more recently. Our school community has quite a diverse mix, in terms of socioeconomic status, ranging from families struggling at the poverty level to make ends meet, to families comfortably well off financially. We also have a wide variety of multicultural backgrounds in our students.
Page-Jackson Elementary serves 421 students in Kindergarten through Second grades. We also have a special education preschool. We have 58 staff with 6 homeroom classes per grade level. We have a half time Nurse, English is a Second language teacher, and Guidance Counselor. We have a full time Art teacher, Physical education teacher, Librarian, Speech teacher, and Music teacher.
We welcome you to our neighborhood!
The Page-Jackson community is a team effort, encouraging every child to reach his/her individual potential by providing a happy, healthy environment and by promoting high expectations for achievement, responsibility and respect for all.
