    We are new to the area and my daughter just started at Marion Jordan Elementary. She loves it and really seems to be enjoying it. Everyone seems very interested in making her transition a smooth one.

    From the Principal to the building staff this is an exceptional grade school. I have lived in the Community Consolidated School District 15 since I was born in 1965 and have attended 3 of its elementary schools and one of its Junior Highs. Marion Jordan staff are warm friendly and very welcoming. Teachers are well-educated and extremely dedicated individuals. Since CCSD15 was awarded the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award by President Bush in 2004 you can't go wrong with any of the district's schools.
