The faculty staff is caring and nurturing. Many talented eager teachers who need a strong yet open leader. The principal (2008-10) does not seem interested in input from parents students community etc. Teachers sometimes seem to have their hands tied when they try to innovate. The tiny PTA is drowned in words not action by the principal but does not get support. Test scores are middling. Very frustrating. Lots of excuses about what CAN'T be done. It wouldn't be this way in Potomac that's for sure. .. But children are happy and healthy there nonetheless.

The principal is fantastic I've had my kids enrolled in other states where the principals didn't really care but Mrs Macias is fantastic I love her.
We send our daughter here and are very pleased with the teachers and the involvement of the parents. Extremely pleased.
I am a former JRES student and I am now attending White Oak Middle School.JRES is a awsome school teachers are very nice and love their students some teachers are just very mean but the overall school disipline is great i just graduated from Jres in 2008 and i loved it the teachers took extra time to make this very nice graduation!
2 of my children go to this school and we are very happy with it. Every teacher we have encountered has been top notch.
I have three students attending JRES. Each has different learning needs and each need is met by the wonderful staff at this school. The teachers in particular have a long tenure low turn over and a great love of children and teaching. They work exceedingly hard to meet curriculum needs and to keep the program interesting for students in spite the the new emphasis on standardized testing. There is a strong art program and a good music program. The after school activities are varied although we will miss the great gymnastic coaching of Jack Leonard retiring after over 30 years as the dynamic athletic director.
