We love this school. They have an anti-bully program, Family Fall night, Sock hop, and keep the family involved. This school makes you feel welcome the moment you walk through the front doors. JVES has a fantastic principal, wonderful teachers and a terrific staff who all work together for the greater good of the students. It's an open, friendly and safe school. This school is committed to education. It also has fun family nights like Sock Hop, Fall Festival and Bingo. Some other school activities include an Earth Day celebration, a garden, a history walk, running school and a habitat, PE, art, music and computer classes. It has a PTSO that works hard to help support the school in getting things for its students, teachers, and staff. Like new library tables and chairs, books, teacher conferences, busses for field trips, a Rock wall, science fair, assemblies and more. I would highly recommend this school to parents coming to this area. Drop by JVES and see for yourself.

This school doesnt care about the students or their families they want to seperate my 3rd grader attending jves and send my littke kindergarten kids to pinon. One of the directors from the board of education pretty much told me to send my kindergarten kid to pinion or keep him home. Kindergarten isnt mandatory in douglas. This district doesnt care abour the students. Mrs gilmartin held my daughter back in kindergarten 10 yrs ago. Was kindergarten important than and not now. Or does this principle does whatever the hell she wants.

I loved the teachers as human beings, very loving and caring and my children had straight A's BUT when we moved to PHES just a few miles down the road my children had even as low as a D's. It took 1 year to get them back on track with better study habits and better teachers, less cuddly, more academic and now at a different school my kids are in AP classes in middle school. And the principal, she is not supportive of parents or teachers. She has made this school a DIVIDED HOT MESS! The teachers there are saints for putting up with her!

We love this school. They have anti bully program, Family Fall night, Sock hop, and keep the family involved. I have 3 kids going and they florished through their past struggles with these teachers and the principal making sure they are invloved with their set backs and growth. The staff is out going and makes sure they know everyone and even which kids are siblings. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our kids!
