Andrew Jackson Elementary School was built in 1928 on land next to the historic Hermitage, the home of former President Andrew Jackson. In 1996, most of the building was demolished in a renovation; however, the original entrance remained and is now the entrance to the school’s library. Andrew Jackson Elementary school

Today, Andrew Jackson serves nearly 450 students and is home to an active parent support organization in which all parents participate.

“At Andrew Jackson Elementary, we focus on meeting each student where they are academically, socially, and emotionally,” Principal Tara Loba said. “We strive to help students to be successful, bring out their talents, and guide them to develop skills to be competitive in an ever-changing world.”

Every Student is Known at Andrew Jackson through social-emotional learning integrations like morning meetings and closing circles, as well as a student council that uplifts the student voice. AJS teams also focus on meeting each student where they are academically through differentiated instruction in the classrooms.
