I currently have both children at Jahn, this is our 3rd year being there. I must say that this year I cannot be any happier with this school.

My two children attend Jahn School and we couldn't be happier about it. It is our neighborhood school and there is such a feeling of warmth when you walk though the doors that I have never felt from any other school I have toured. The new administration is pushing hard to improve test scores and implementing ...  Read more
