My daughter attended Lee F. Jackson for K and 1st grade and had a great experience. She has progressed very nicely in all areas and seems to have enjoyed her two years there. We thought both her K and 1st grade teachers were excellent. Everyone was warm and friendly and the school is very personal.

This is my son's 2nd year in Lee F Jackson. Mason loves it! And I'm impressed how much he's been learning. The principal knows every kid's name and attends every PTA meeting.

I grew up in White Plains and went through the school system. When I had my son and moved to Greenburgh, I was very disappointed and skeptical about having to send him to Greenburgh schools. (I too had heard mixed reviews) I can't tell you how pleased I am with his Kindergarten experience. He has an
... Read more amazing teacher (3 actually) and a class of 14. He is reading and thriving and the parents are very active. His class offers a "looping" option which means he will be staying with the same teacher for 1st grade. (She is also certified as a 1st grade teacher) I think this is a wonderful idea. On the first day of school they just pick up where they left off. No awkwardness, the teacher knows their strengths and weaknesses and the students feel more confident. Again, If you are considering this school, I think you will be pleasantly surprised! Read less

We absolutely LOVE this school. Our daughter has attended both kindergarten and first grade here. She has grown immensely. I can't say enough great things about her teachers, Mrs. Sheppard (first) and Mrs. Townsend (kindergarten). The principal cares and it is obvious. The PTA is super involved.
... Read more I like that the school is only kindergarten and first grade, it makes for an easy transition from pre-k. When we moved to Greenburgh district 7, we did not hear good things about the schools. I am SO glad we gave this school a chance and did not listen to rumors about the district. I hope other parents will give the school a chance as well! Read less
