Information About Jackson Center Local Schools




The Jackson Center Local School District is located in northeast Shelby County.  The district has one large building complex which houses over 550 students in grades pre- K-12, with 41 certified staff members.  The district also contains a branch of the Shelby Hills school which services 3 and 4 year olds.  The district provides a innovative curriculum and schedule for elementary and middle school children that is designed to fit the individual needs of all students.  For example, our teachers specialize in subjects starting at the kindergarten level so even 5 and 6 year olds change classes during the day.


At the high school level, Jackson Center is the only school in Shelby County besides Sidney High School that offers Advanced Placement classes.  In addition, Jackson Center offers Dual Enrollment courses through Urbana University.  


The Jackson Center community takes pride in its school district and shows support financially through booster groups and volunteering.  The school district participates in the inter-district open enrollment program and many students from surrounding school districts choose to attend our school.  In conjunction with the Upper Valley JVS, we offer comprehensive Vocational Consumer Sciences and Vocational  Agriculture programs.


Students from Jackson Center have distinguished themselves with their achievements and accomplishments. The Jackson Center School District and students take academic studies seriously with a high percentage moving on to higher education. Our students have also done well in music competitions, art contests, athletic events, and drama productions. Our teachers and support staff do all that is possible to provide an environment that is conducive to student participation and achievement.
