I am dismayed at the rating and test scores that Jack London received as I believe it doesn't reflect the true picture. The teachers are mostly dedicated and excellent. From Mrs. Jeans who instilled the love of reading and organizational skills to Mrs.Hamilton,Mrs. Carrigan,Mrs.Odegaard and Mrs. Martin ...  Read more

I transferred my kids to Jack London after Turner Elementary was not the right fit for them. My son's 1st grade teacher Mrs. Sawyer is excellent. Immediately she was very helpful and understanding. She even called me to tell me how great he was doing and improving. This is what great teachers do!

The school use to be a great school. The teachers are great. I do question the principal and how safe the school is. Jack London has made a huge turn for the worst this year, which is really sad because it use to be a great school and you felt safe sending your children there.

London has wonderful teachers. Carrigan, Sawyer, Apel, Dettrick, Carpenter. My kids have enjoyed the school. Mr. Bergman the music teacher is great.

I love Jack London Elementary! It's a very good school with plenty of potential, although, it could use an upgrade, due to it's 14 or 15 years of usage. Mr. Bywater is absolutely wonderful. Ed Dacus is good too.

There are several awesome teachers at the school. To name a few - Mr. Bywater, Mrs. Apel, Mrs. Carrigan, Mrs. Frew, Mrs. Sawyer, Mrs. Spiker, Mrs. Farmer, Mrs. Ogden, Mrs. Weinstein. Currently no one has stepped forth to be PTA president for the 2006/2007 school year so there may not be a PTA next ...  Read more
