Introductions and School History North Jackson Elementary School opened in August, 2009. It was the 7 th elementary school in Barren County. The focus of the school is leadership with an emphasis in math and science. The guiding force behind the development of North Jackson was, and continues to be, developing the leader in each child.
School Mission Together we can dream, believe, lead, and achieve.
