Group of ELL students standing together at Jackson MiddleStonewall Jackson Middle School has had an ELL Center for years.  This year, the center is seeing a rebirth.  The school has reached out to community leaders to make parents and English Language Learners (ELL) feel welcome at the school.  This includes signing parents up for English classes and helping them get their GED. Jackson Middle is making sure more students are taking part in extra-curricular activities like band and orchestra.  In the ELL wing, flags are hanging to show the many countries students represent.  Jackson's student body is made up of 28 different countries. "We want our students to feel welcome and we want them to succeed," said Principal Ms. Delp.
