    Love the schools commitment to excellence and how the teachers are so willing to help therr students. I do wish it was all day kindergarden but at least our children are getting a good education.

    Jackson Elementary is a true "neighborhood" school. The students all live within walking distance. The sense of community is very obvious.

    Overall Jackson Elementary is an amazing school. Most of the teachers are happy and eager to teach. The new principal is not very personable and the teachers seem nervous and tense when she is around but last year was her first year so hopefully she will learn to relax as provide a more positive atmosphere for her teachers. Mrs. Hayes (4th) and Mrs. William (1st) are amazing teachers and went above and beyond with my children. We have been very happy with the school and staff. The PTA spends a lot of time planning events and parent volunteers make up for the lack of school funds from the state. All of the areas schools are very good but JES is a little smaller so the kids don't fall between the cracks and everyone knows your name.

    I really love the 2 kinder teachers my twins had this year. I was always informed of their progress and how to help/assist them with daily and take home work. If this was just about those 2 teaches I would give the school a solid 5 star. However a school is not made up of just the teachers. The front office (namely the person in charge of the front office) is sorely lacking and at times most unpleasant. The principle is so-so. I had tried on at least 3 different times to have a conversation with her about some bothersome situations but she never bothered to call me back. If you want to volunteer your time in the class room the teachers are very open and always need help. But was treated as an outsider by everyone else but the teachers (of course when I was donating money the PTA and school had a hand out and smile but that was only during money time). All in all my first year at JES was wonderful with the teaches but extremely disappointed with everything else.

    Our son started at Jackson in the fall of 2011. He has enjoyed the school his classmates and most of all his teacher. Mrs. Hayes is a wonderful lady and very easy to talk too. The school has a newer layout for classrooms where you can reach the class from inside like offices. Nice when it rains so the kids don't have to go out into the rain and the library and office are easy to access. You won't get kids wandering around.The office staff is always welcoming and helpful. I think that always makes a parent feel important . They also have great resources for children with special needs. I met a parent that lives out of the school zone who brings there child for this purpose. That says a lot.

    Wonderful school! Parents are very involved and the staff is amazing. I have 2 children in the school grades Kindergarten and 4th grade. Both of their teachers are very motivated positive and encouraging. The front staff (Karen) is always happy to help and very welcoming. My children have excelled in all areas and actually LOVE going to school. Thank you JES for a job well done.

    We have been at JES since my son started kinder. Both of my children attend the school and love it. The staff is amazing. We could not ask for a more devoted caring and loving environment for our children. We love JES!!!!

    This school has the best staff. The teachers are great and really care for the kids and are not there to earn just a paycheck. The Pricipal is a wonderful kind friendly person. I havem never seen such support until my son started here all the way to the speech therapist and RSP teacher

    This is very good school. My daughter has attended for since kindergarten and is now in the fourth grade. She loves the school and everybody there.The teachers are understanding. And she can wait to go to fifth grade there too. It is by far a very wonderful school. I would choose over any school!

    My student attends jackson and despises summer break! There they have a very good academic program. The teachers are very kind and nice but a the same time they can be strict. My daughter was in student council one year and won 2nd place in the school spelling bee in 4th grade. The PTA was very generous when it came to donating money to the school. In conclusion I would choose helen hunt jackson over any school.

    Excellent teachers a so-so new principal and over-crowded! Hopefully better next year!

    This school has some good teachers they are however laking in student motivation as far as academics are concerned. They seem to be more interested in acknowledging being an athlete and raising alot of fundraising money but do not acknowledge academic achievment. Because of this I am sadly disappointed.

    The principle and teachers are impeccable role models and both of my children. We have loved being apart of this school and enviroment. They challenge them just enough. And when there is a concern you can feel comfortable to discuss it!

    My child spent K-4 years in expensive private school because I was unaware that a public school such as this one existed...this school is great the staff is beyond helpful it's new fresh and a very happy environment. My child is treated lovingly.
