    I love this school. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. There is alot of parent involvement which is wonderful. I am one of those parents that volunteered daily. I had 3 daughters who attended this school and has gained so much. The teachers are wonderful and are always updating parents on their childrens progress good or bad. To me that's a plus. Mr.Fine is a very nice person and it is amazing that he knows all the children by name. He greets parents and children in the morning and is always there to answer questions. The school is awsome and we will miss being apart of the school.

    I have only good words to say about this school and strongly agree with parent review submitted in January. My older son had already graduated from Isabelle Jackson my daughter is a 2nd grader. This school creates great feeling of family and unity providing different varieties of support. Most recently Mr. Fine added 'Chat with Principal' monthly short morning meeting which is not obligatory but provides so much valuable information - I strongly recommend for parents to try to attend at least a couple of those. This school had also started hosting 2-week summer school program - which was a great success last year - I am looking forward to that school this year as well. To sum up great school great and cosy school campus with cute landscaping.

    My two children have attended this school for several years. I have been very impressed by the GATE program and the accelerated class work that they have been offered. We are very happy that this school recognizes and celebrates its advanced learners and believes that they have special needs too. We also like the rainbow of families and cultures within the school community - there is a real unity and family feeling when we attend school functions. Reading achievement is especially promoted there's even monthly assemblies to promote and honor kids making progress with the Accelerated Reader program! The principal is very strong committed reachable and knows every child by name (and it's a large school!). I have been especially impressed by the teachers - they go above and beyond to provide a quality experience in the classroom and EGUSD provides excellent curriculum for learners. Overall an outstanding school!

    My son has attended Isabelle Jackson since kindergarten and he is now in the fourth grade. The principal has set an excellent tone for the school and the teachers are very caring and dedicated. There seems to be a lot of parent participation as well. My child is special needs (high functioning autism) and they have been addressed very well by this school I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.

    Our son Clayton attended Isabelle Jackson for 3 years from 1st to 3rd grade. Overall he had a good experience there. The teachers were very in tune to his needs for the most part as he was a special needs child. He tended to be hyper leading us to suspect he had ADD but his teachers and the support staff/counselors did a great job helping him through it.
