Greetings! My name is Jasper Lusby, and I would like to welcome you to Sharp Park Academy IB world school for the 2018-2019 school year! As the principal of the school I am proud of our amazing teaching and support staff who go above and beyond each day to insure all our students have every opportunity to achieve academic and social success. I am proud of our students who accomplish great things each day. I am especially proud this year that Sharp Park Academy has received the district’s award for academic excellence.
Better-than-budgeted interest rates and a competitive market paid off for Jackson Public schools in the recent sale of bonds from a proposal voters approved in May.
