Greetings, and welcome to the 2017- 2018 school year. My name is Jeremy Patterson, Principal for Instruction. This will be my third year leading Middle School at Parkside, and my 11th year in Administration with Jackson Public School. Middle School at Parkside offers so much more than most traditional schools. Our International Baccalaureate Framework ensures a well rounded, rigorous and inquiry based method of learning that ensures our students to reach academic excellence. Our emphasis in collaboration stresses the importance of building social skills and learning from one another helps our students become workforce ready. The extracurricular opportunities such as The Arts, Athletics, Academic Games, Community Service and more provide a deeper connection to our school and community.
Hello and welcome to The Middle School at Parkside. My name is Mrs. Jarvey and I am the Associate Principal. This upcoming school year I will be moving up with my students and will be the 8th grade principal. I am excited to see them continue to learn and grow! Parkside is the best place to be for your child! Why you ask? We offer many after school clubs such as Academic Games, French and German Club, Science Club, Student Council, and National Junior Honor Society just to name a few. We also have offerings in sports such as wrestling, swimming, basketball, football, cheerleading, track, cross country and volleyball.

The Center for Family Health operates three school health centers, in partnership with Jackson Public Schools, making affordable medical and behavioral health services convenient.
Two centers serve patients through the age of 21 – Parkside Health Center and Jackson High Health Center. Northeast Health Center serves patients of all ages and also offers dental services.
It is like having a family doctor’s office in a school. The centers are open to all students, regardless of where they go to school. Students under 18 need parental permission to be treated. The school health centers can serve as your family doctor or be utilized in tandem with your family physician.
School health center staff conduct physical examinations, diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses, administer immunizations, offer hearing and vision screening, and provide preventive health services and education. Therapists also are on staff.
All school health centers are open weekdays year-round. You can learn more about hours, specific locations and phone numbers by visiting www.CenterforFamilyHealth.org/ health-services/school-health.
Adults or children treated at any of the school health centers can utilize the services at the downtown Jackson facility at 505 N. Jackson St. and the Dental Clinic at 500 N. Jackson St.
All Center locations accept most commercial and government insurance groups, including Medicaid and Medicare; offer a sliding discount program; and never turn anyone away because of inability to pay.
The Jackson School Board has picked its officers for the coming year.
Jackson Public Schools is switching the leaders of Dibble and Frost elementary schools
Thanks to one Michigan woman's invention and some help from Consumers Energy, elementary school students across Jackson County won't know that torture anymore.
A smaller enrollment decline than expected and an increase in state funding for at-risk students helped erase about a $1 million deficit from Jackson Public Schools' 2017-18 budget.
As part of an $86.7 million bond proposal, Jackson's Frost and Cascades elementary schools would be demolished and a new elementary school built in their place.
