- John Stockton Elementary School
10/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageThis school is not all its cracked up to be. My daughter attended this school for 4 years. The first two years were bad. Her teachers told me all about how she couldn't do this and couldn't do that. I worked with her on all of her deficiencies. We had to do all the work outside of school to make this happen. Her teachers were no help! By the third year she was a model student. She had worked her butt off and it showed. The fourth and final year was the last straw. Her fourth grade teacher was horrible!!!! She only had negative things to say about my child. Never did she have any type of positive reinforcement from her teacher. My child who loved school and doing her best, hated school. When speaking to the administration all I was told is they would talk to the teacher . What good was that, my daughter was already terrified. This is when we decided enough is enough and moved her out of this environment. Since then she is now a straight A student. Her teachers love her and has since been tested for gifted. This school is receiving 1 star because we had 1 good year.Parent Review6y ago

"Seems like a nice little neighborhood. It looks like an area that is on the comeback. I understand the elementary school is top notch. "

"It's beautiful and quiet. Nice walking neighborhood, with sidewalks and not much traffic. Close to lots of great parts of Jacksonville without being part of the hustle and bustle"

"It is a "locked in" older neighborhood and there will be no high-rises, apartment buildings, or unwanted run-down rental homes. People walk their dogs, ride bikes, and children are seen everywhere (raised by a village-all eyes on them). Great elementary school and walking distance to a prestigious private Country Club for tennis, golf, boating, and good food. Taxes lower than Ortega, too! Love it, but we're moving to Texas...family."
