The new principal Mr Lopez is excellent. The teachers have excellent communication and really care about my kids. I still have one in 4th grade, but my eldest who graduated 2 years ago was very well prepared for the challenge of the Middle School gifted magnet program he is in now.

I've had my child at JDG for 2 years now & haven't had any complaints. However, I think that when you have a problem is when you will find out whether they are professional & attentive or not. The school is secure, clean, organized and the teachers, for the most part, seem well qualified. I look forward ...  Read more

Our principal was an excellent principal and an even greater human being. She bent over backwards for her school and the children. She's gone because she was a victim of bureaucracy and a school system that is too big and ineffective. Unfortunate.

I am sorry that Ms. Alperin left. I was there for years, and saw no discrimination towards any particular population. What she didn't like was the fact that a lot of people felt entitled and thought they could get away with rule-breaking. I was a member of the PTA and am part-hispanic and NEVER felt ...  Read more

My grandson started Kindergarden in this school and by December he had learned so much! Ms. Glasmer is excellent. She uses positive to correct, and makes learning fun.

I am a full time single father with two kids. Jack D. Gordon has been a family to us. Ms. Alperin, Ms. Guerra and Ms. Hernandez are the most compassionate, genuine, classy, and professional adminstrators. They have dealt with my boys at the hardest of times. They care enough to make personal phone ...  Read more
