I am a parent of a student that has attended this school for the last 3 years and I will tell you that I am very dissapointed in the education that my child recieves from this school. My son has had one good teacher at jenkins and one that was ok and one that was just a horrible teacher. My son is advanced in almost every subject and the school cant challenge him in anyway. This school focuses to much on the SOLs that the children do not get a strong education. The PTA likes to use the kids as a way to get the parents to attend what is suppose to be a kid related event like a chorus concert or something and they turn it into a PTA meeting. Really dissapointed and I hope the eventually shut this school down. They lost there title one funding because the teachers dont care to teach and this kids are not learning. such a shame our kids are not being educated correctly.
