    I could not disagree more with the last (July 2013) parent post. My son has thrived in this school since arriving last year. I reported a bullying incident on the bus that occurred the very first week of school and it was addressed immediately by the assistant principal who is extremely approachable and caring. The school takes bullying very seriously. My son feels challenged in every subject. His teachers have always been willing to meet with us when we have voiced concerns; they have been honest fair and nonjudgmental. In fact one of the English teachers has completely changed my son's historical lack of confidence and interest in reading and writing into a passion for reading and being a creative confident writer and public speaker. I honestly cannot wait for my other younger children to attend this school. It's by far one of the best in our school district with so much to offer our students!

    The leadership of this school is unapproachable. Their judgement is questionable at best. They fail miserably in education of the students turn a blind eye to bullying and refuse to deal with parents concerns in any meaningful way. My child hated this school I would recommend any alternative to avoid this particular school and their non-responsive staff.

    Jared Eliot School has been a great middle school for my 3 sons. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the teachers over the years that my children have passed through. Jared Eliot School provides a challenging curriculum and teachers who are actively involved in addressing any academic or behavioral issues that might arise. The current administration is great improvement over some in the past and they are strong leaders who make sure teachers and students get the most out of the school academically socially and culturally.

    Questionable leadership. Lack of creativity. Very few good teachers and an overwelming inability to deal with real life issuues.

    The teachers we have had a very caring but the academics are not rigorous. There is a prevalent attitude to make sure the kids have fun and really like school. That's great really it is but the projects that have had to do are fluffy. For example a couple of class projects were 'cut relevant pictures from a magazine and paste them on poster board'. More recent ones include making power point presentations which is an improvement. But call me crazy I'd like to see the kids be able to write an actual research paper. At least one for the year. They aren't doing enough writing. The atmosphere of the school is caring I just wish it was a bit more rigorous.

    Persistent problems with leadership. In the past 2 years a number of school district personnel have been arrested for drug related charges and for having sexual relationships with students. Unimpressive teaching staff. My children were miserable here. Parents are not encouraged to be involved beyond superficial levels (bake sales and other fundraisers).

    I have 3 kids that are either in this school or passed through it. I question the leaderships judgement and fairness. Education has the 'social promotion' attitude. Definitly not satisfied with the leaderships policies and responses to issues raised. Some good teachers are part of the staff - but I see them held back due to policies/procedures set by the leadership.
