St. Mary's School Jackson TN

One prominent Jackson school is taking steps to ensure children are getting an education that focuses on the whole child, not just their intellectual development.

St. Mary’s School, one of Jackson's private facilities, is in the process of changing its curriculum to provide a more rigorous and thought-provoking education for students. The Catholic School has developed a new educational vision designed to focus on the whole child, which includes spirituality, as well as emotional and physical development, in addition to the intellectual aspects of getting a good education.
