About S.Y. Jackson

Our school opened in 1971 and was named after Sherwood Young Jackson, a local businessman and APS school board member. We have a strong teaching and support staff as well as a very active PTA, who all set high expectations for our students. Our school colors are black and gold and our mascot is the jaguar.

APS Mission: Albuquerque Public Schools in collaboration with the community provide quality education which prepares all students to become contributing members of a diverse changing world.

S.Y. Jackson Mission: The S.Y. Jackson community will collaborate to provide a safe learning environment which respects individual differences and helps all students to reach their full potential.
