    This school has to many students in the class rooms. Children are still coming as of 11/2013. Why we don't have a cut off numbers like private school. Need more volunteers. The special need children don't have what's needed for them at this school.

    The teachers at J.N. Ervin are committed to helping students reach their goals. We set high standards. Both my children attended Ervin. So hats off to Ervin.

    J.N. Ervin is a great school as many elementary schools are. They have provided my children with a safe learning environment which has stimulated and excited their desire to learn. My daughter is in Kindergarten but she is looking forward to joining the cheer squad and attending the schools basketball games. She has also been accepted into the talented and gifted program for the next school year. When I go to the school I am excited to see parents actually bringing their child into the teachers classroom. It is in my honest opinion J.N. Ervin is a superb school!
