    All of my children attended Julian Elem. They started in ESK and finished 6th grade. They all achieved straight A's and they all received "advanced" on STAR testing each year. The teachers were all requested by me based on the previous years test scores. This school follows state guidelines for academics while complying with Title 1 curriculum as well. These teachers care these teachers teach. I am proud to have had my children attend this school from 2002-2013. It was an incredible experience for all of them!!

    The school seems very friendly yet the education is severely behind. I am in a yours mind and ours family one of the kids goes to Julian while the other kids go to a different school. the child in Julian is academically behind at least 2 years from the other kids in the same grade at the other school. the staff seemed a bit difficult to work with being the my household was not in their district only the other parent whose household was in their district received all school information in regards to events at school special activities and academic information regarding the child.

    This school is AMAZING!! Being a Military family my kids have attended numerous schools. This is by far the best school... The teachers helpers and all staff are friendly supportive and give the children exceptional education. They even have a garden to work in!! I can only hope my kids will get to continue at this school for the rest of my husbands military career. My kids and I absolutely LOVE this school and all the teachers!

    Every single staff member teacher and volunteer seemed to be there for the right reasons. My daughter didn't just learn to write and read to add and subtract she was given a solid character education given the freedom to take creative risks to ask questions to share ideas. This is THE best school that I have ever been a part of as an adult or a child. If you get the chance to have your child in Mrs Younce's classroom DO IT. It will change your child the experience.

    This school may have nice teachers and staff but the quality of education is very poor. After moving my son districts we realized how far behind he was academically from going to Julian and now we are playing major catch up! It's great to have nice people around our kids but they are supposed to be going to school to get a quality education and this is not what this school is doing with our children.

    We moved to theis rural location from the city and i cant tell you what a breath of fresh air it has been. This school is both friendly anduncomplicated. My child is an excelerated learner and has been challenged and pushed since arriving which is a great thing! The staff are very unasuming and on hand and know each child well. My interactions with them have been very informal and unstressful! Every request i have had has been dealt with quickly and efficiently. My daughter is very happy and so am I!

    We really like the teacher involvement. We knew the teachers on a personal level because of the small town atmosphere. All of the staff was involved with the children and family. They noticed and paid special attention to our childrens' special needs. They had programs available for this. Overall very satisfied and highly recommended.
