The staff here cares for one thing only...eog scores. A second grade teacher bullies and has assaulted a student and the principal claims imagination of small children. Sick!! Until staffing changes apply for a safe and nurturing school. Horrible! Run!

The school is an average school. Teachers and staff are friendly. However, I find their EOG test scores may be high, there isn't really a push for the children to excel pass that point. I am considering removing my child from the school to a more challenging school that doesn't only concentrate on EOG ...  Read more

I have two students attending JDE and have been very pleased thus far. We've had very engaged and accommodating teachers and staff who have been amazingly responsive to my students' needs. Both my children have tested AG and have needed additional enrichment. Mr. Gifford has been very open and helpful ...  Read more

This school is awesome! Ms. Hyer is such a great teacher! We were only there for the 2011/2012 school year but she was worth the move to this school district! She made this a great year for my son.

My two boys have attended for 2 years. Overall, an average school for average kids that teaches to the state test (bare minimum). So while test scores look good, the bar is set low. We are leaving to go to a more rigorous charter school with higher standards.

Incredibly pleased with our experiences at Jones Dairy in terms of teachers, quality of educational experiences, students, and overall "warmth and feel" of the school. The high test scores from last year evidences the educational standards of excellence the school is achieving. The principal is receptive ...  Read more

This is my son's 2nd year at JDE. We have been very pleased. This year we had some issues with his teacher's teaching style. We met with the principal (who had noticed my son during car pool & recess & had insight to his personality) who had additional outside academic testing & moved him to a classroom ...  Read more

This is our first year here and we are considering going to a new school next year. There is a great lack of communication on many fronts: from the teacher, principal and pta. THere is not a welcoming sense of community. Parent involvement is not encouraged from leadership or teachers and there seems ...  Read more

Only our third year there but I am so pleased with each teacher my daughter has had. Just a very laid back school that gets results. You could call me a fan.
