    I am a parent of 2 Jenkins students. It's a wonderful school. Not only do we have fabulous hard working teachers but we have an amazing staff as well. Our principal John Willis is the best principal I've ever come across. No matter what your issue is big or small he is available to sit and talk with you. He goes into the classrooms and sits with the kids and truly gets to know them. Regardless of your child's needs they make sure to fulfill them. Each and every child gets the best and comes out with a great education. We are so lucky to have such an amazing public elementary school for our kids to attend.
