My daughters are going into first grade at Jenks. Our experience has been exceptional. The principal and teachers are caring and top notch the academics are challenging (my Kindergartners were reading at a second grade level by the time the year ended) and the Home and School is very active. The school asks a lot of parents which is what I believe makes it such a great school. I considered a charter but decided to give Jenks a try through family members with direct experience and I am very glad I did. It's also one of the top performing schools in our district despite the low score here (I blame the SDP for that though). Great school truly.
