    JBE is a wonderful school. Some of the policies that the principal has enforced are a little silly such as no food at holiday parties and things like that. To me it is more like a jail for the day instead of school. Other than that the school is wonderful!! The teachers are fantastic especially Mrs. Linda Harvey and Mrs. Sandra Goins. They were so involved with my children in Pre-K and they went out of their way to make sure the kids had what they needed.I am proud to say that my kids attend Jumping Branch.

    It is truly a great school...Thats for sure....One on one attention is great.I would have to say that the atmosphere isn't as pleasureable now as it used to be .The added pressure of keeping up the 'school of excellence' frame of mind has really tensed up the atmosphere for everyone involved. This along with some policies instituted by the principal has taken a lot away from the wonderful family atmosphere that we all enjoyed so much. Even with all this considered JB Elementary is still well into the 90 percentile in ratings.....A definite credit to the public school system in our area.....TC

    I am glad that my children have the same opportunity to experience the greatness of JBE as I did when I went there. This is such a dependable school where everone helps everyone. I hope and pray this school is open for my children's children to have a learning expierience.

    JBE is truly a diamond in the rough-Since moving into the district this Fall my children enjoyed attending this school.The curriculum and class-room instruction is secound to none. I can honestly say that JBE has exceeded all of my family's academic expectations. Keep up the Great work!
