What is MESA?

Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement or MESA is an after school program for students that offers Academic plans that aids student progress towards college, learn the most effective study techniques for academic achievement and also provides hands-on Math and Science competition to students for them to meet other MESA members from other schools.



After months of hard work, the Jackson MESA Team successfully competed at the MESA Preliminary Competition at CSULB. Although the competition was tough, our team came away with two gold medals and a 1st Place Ribbon. This is a great accomplishment as our Jackson Knights were competing with schools not only in the Paramount Unified School District, but also schools in Bellflower, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Fe Springs, and Wilmington.


Congratulations to all our MESA Knights. In addition, lets wish Donovan Andrade, Jose Frias, and Isabella Cano luck as they head to the Regional Finals at UCLA this upcoming April 23rd, 2016.
