Jackson Elementary is part of the St. Paul Promise Neighborhood Initiative and has offered a Hmong Dual Language program for PreK-5 students since 2006.
Our school believes that children are everyone’s priority. Our teachers, parents, community partners and the St. Paul Promise Neighborhood Initiative are all committed to nurturing each Jackson student as a remarkable individual with limitless potential. Since 2006, Jackson has offered a Hmong Dual Language Program for students in PreK to fifth grade. Research shows that children in a dual language program achieve academically while becoming proficient in two languages. Specialists in science, music, physical education and Hmong culture and literacy enhance our core academic program, and nearly 20 community partners provide extensive academic support, performing and visual arts programs, fitness, field trips, and Hmong and African American cultural enrichment.
