13 Parent Reviews for Benjamin Jepson Magnet School

We're happy we made the choice to leave Jepson. If your child has more needs academically or emotionally than the average child you might find this school the right fit but for those in the average to upper learning curve, this school does not encourage progression. There are a few very good teachers ...  Read more

My son started pre-k 4 this fall & I have no complaints at all. Maybe the people who have been complaining in these reviews should seek to reeducate themselves & learn grammer and spelling before they write a bad review which makes them look ignorant.

I've been at this school for 11 years now, and I can't say anything bad about it at all. It helped me become the great young adult that I am now. I highly recommend this school!

My children have gone to Jepson for the past 5 years.

While ...  Read more
