Jackson Middle School PTA
Welcome to the


Jackson Middle School in Portland, OR is proud to be a Leonard Bernstein School of Artful Learning since 1998. We believe and can demonstrate the arts are a pathway for complete student engagement, educator empowerment and a compelling model to transform learning. Jackson is one of 15 schools in the U.S. that uses Bernstein’s interdisciplinary approach, and the only one in Oregon. 


March 15th brings all things Bernstein, Grandparents & Special Friends Night and more! Look forward to: Spaghetti Dinner (open 5:30-7pm – vegetarian & gluten-free options), Party Board Experiences with Awesome Teachers, Take an Artful Learning Unit Tour and finish with a musical performance.

Thank you for your Support!
