“A student centered, technologically engaging learning community focused on S.T.E.M. education to encourage the highest level of career and college preparation.”

Focusing our efforts on the local economy and the global market, our school aims to bring all disciplines together focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as the anchor. We also use various collabarotive approaches to help our students work in teams to learn together.

Jackson Middle School is a place where:

…everybody is welcomed and encouraged to serve one another …everybody will have the opportunity to grow through hands on science and technology …we respect and care for everyone and everything around us …everybody will receive interventions tailored to the individual student’s needs at all levels.

Website problems
Parents who wish to register(or register again) for School Fusion accounts can do so at http://acps.schoolfusion.us/register.phtml.  To view the Parent Guide, click here.
FYI: A SchoolFusion Parent Account allows parents to view all of their children’s classroom information in one web location. Parents can check assignments, view important deadlines on FusionPage calendars, follow their children's sports calendars, school events and much more!  Once parents have created an account email notifications will be sent when new announcements and assignments are added.  Only parents/guardians of students enrolled in Aiken County Public School District are allowed to register.
To create a parent account, you will need the student id# for each student and birth date.  The birth date should be keyed in with  no leading zero or dashes.

Parents please email sbrady@acpsd.net if you are having issues with School Fusion.  We are having some technical issues that we are working to alleviate.  Please contact us if you are having any issue or need direction.
