    My son attended another school last year for his first year of school and it was terrible. This year has been amazing. The people at Jesup Elementary are friendly and caring toward their students. They have been very helpful and communicative and have made my son feel like he is welcome. This school has been great so far.

    I am a parent of children who go to JES and I am also a teacher at JES! My little girl started 2nd grade stuggling did not matter what I did to help her! But for the first time she made honor roll this year and was in a beauty pageant two things that looked impossible for her to achieve when school started but because of her teacher and the programs they had to help academically and with self-esteem she has blossomed!! Can't wait to see what happens next year!

    Jesup Elementary prides itself on putting kids first. We ask ourselves questions like 'How will this impact the students?' or 'In what way will this benefit the children?' Administration faculty and support staff work together to make JES a great place to learn.
