At the Jackson Annual Fund, our mission is to support the initiatives that make a difference in the lives of the students at Jackson STEM Dual Language Magnet Academy. We raise funds to provide additional resources that are not included in the existing budget, such as specialized equipment, field trips, garden and cooking classes, and more.
Jackson STEM Dual Language Magnet Academy is a public elementary school located in the underprivileged community of northwest Altadena, serving a student population with over 65% qualifying for the free/reduced lunch program. Our goal is to provide support to the school and its students, and help bridge the gap between the resources they need and the resources they have.
With the proceeds from the 2023 FIESTA and Silent Auction, we aim to raise $50,000 to support the library and school-wide music program at Jackson Magnet. Join us in our mission to enhance the educational experience for the students at Jackson STEM Dual Language Magnet Academy.
Who We Are...
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.
In the Fall of 2022, the school community voted to rename the school after NASA's first African American engineer, Mary J. Jackson to better align the name with the amazing school programs. The new name is pending PUSD school board approval expected in the Spring of 2023.
