    MY CHILD WENT TO A CHARTER SCHOOL FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. WE SWITCHED THIS PAST YEAR TO JONES INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL AND COULDN'T BE MORE PLEASED. MY CHILD HAD GREAT TEACHERS (5TH GRADE TEACHERS HERE ARE THE BEST) AND SHOWED LOTS OF GROWTH ON THE END OF GRADE TESTS. JONES INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL IS DEFINITELY AN EXCELLENT PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD TO GET A GREAT EDUCATION.
