The Jackson Annual Fund raises money to support initiatives that are not funded in the existing budget, such as specialized equipment, after-school programs, the garden, field trips, and more for Jackson STEM Dual Language Magnet Academy. Jackson is a public elementary school that services an underprivileged section of northwest Altadena, with over 70% of the students qualifying for the free/reduced lunch program. We are dedicating the proceeds of the Fiesta to support programming at Jackson Magnet, including support of the library and our school-wide music program, and hope to raise $40,000.

Jackson STEM Dual Language Magnet Academy 

offers an innovative academic program that nurtures the communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creative skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century and places a strong emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Through participation in the Dual Language Immersion Program (DLIP), students are taught to read, write, and speak in both English and Spanish. Students are accepted through PUSD's open enrollment.  

The school boasts amazing specialty programs:

  • A hands on science laboratory staffed by a full-time Science teacher. 

  • The music program was amplified with the addition of a full-time Music teacher working with students in all grade levels (K-5)

  •  A partnership with the Garden School Foundation helped create a thriving community garden while also creating a cooking curriculum for all students.
