New Principal Shari Johnston is so great ! Very involved in every aspect, kids teachers, staff.

I also agree with the reviews regarding the principal. I have seen her walk around in the mornings and just speak with the staff and not once make eye contact or greet any parents OR children. Even on back to school night it looked like she was giving a tour to a district employee. How about at least ...  Read more

For the 3 years I have been in JAMS I have to say it is one of the nicest elementary schools in Livermore. It has a very nive staff and the campus is very nice.

Jackson Avenue is a much better school this year (2006) due to a principal change. The principal this year is back out with the kids at recess and involved. I have found that he is much easier to talk to and the kids seem happier. The teachers overall are pretty good and do care about the students, ...  Read more

I have been very satisfied with the way JAS is. We have had wonderful teachers as well as principals. Mr. See was wonderful and has made some great changes to the school that benifits all. Mr. Turnage is a great addition to the school to keep the school going forward rather than backwards. I have been ...  Read more
