    This is our 5th yr at JGE. I definitely feel like our child has been challenged academically and grown socially since Kindergarten. A relatively shy person she has been able to excel in her academics and thanks to very caring teachers she has thrived and blossomed. There is a very active PTA program that is working tirelessly throughout the year to support student extension programs and staff alike. There are also opportunities for after school programs such as Girls On the Run and a similar boys program. There is also tennis for boys and girls. Both of these activities are outsourced and available for a fee. I will mention that in the past year or two since the school reassignments there is not as much diversity as there once was.

    So proud of the recent test results!!! Really shows how far along the school has come. Setting high goals for our students really pushes them and the results are amazing. Congrats to the teachers and staff at JGE! The results of your hard work are reflected in the continued improvement of the EOG scores! So thankful we are part of Jeffreys grove

    Best school in Wake County!!! We just started last year and have had a great year in 1st and 4th grades.

    This is our second year at Jeffreys Grove and we love it! The administration and teachers are excellent. They have added several new programs to help the students excel in different capacities. The PTA is extremely dedicated to the school as well. It is a small school and I am liking that! We will be staying at Jeffrey's Grove no matter what our choice next year.

    My son has thoroughly enjoyed his four years at Jeffrey's Grove. He's made wonderful friendships (as have we as a family) soared in his learning experiences and enjoyed numerous opportunities to explore learning and share his own topical "expertise" beyond the standard textbook approach to teaching. We love JG and you will too.

    Jeffreys Grove is a fabulous elementary school that has provided my children amazing things - academic and personal confidence a love of writing an appreciation for math great teachers mentors and friends. I can't believe how much our children have grown. Lisa Cruz is a dedicated innovative leader who makes a major improvement every time I turn around. The teachers are high energy professional passionate and talented. You receive personal attention & your children departs with strong socialization/emotional skills. I wish our oldest didn t have to graduate this year but our comfort is that she is truly prepared for middle school. I can t recommend this school enough. I am so thankful that our children have had the opportunity to attend JG and that I have been able to be a part of the fabulous JG community. The Simpson family

    Jeffreys Grove School is Raleigh's best kept secret. We have enjoyed it for the past 5 years. The teachers and staff are wonderful and caring and the resources are state of the art. I am always impressed by what my children are learning!

    Frankly Jeffreys Grove is a great little secret that I'm hesitant to share. It is a small school so it really is a little community. It was great before but becoming part of the Global Network has made it even better. Our son is at a higher academic level and I feel that he has been challenged to excel. The teachers and staff are warm and caring and the PTA is very active. Couldn't be happier.

    We love this school! Our child comes home talking about their global projects. She is excited to work on the smart board and ipads that they have in the classroom. We are happy that we choose JG!!!

    I had negative experience when my son was in Kindergarten and because it was his first time with public school I decided to give it another chance. I am so glad I did. Each year since has been better and better and this year Jeffreys Grove is now part of the global schools network. While diversity is excellent at the school in terms of the student population now the students are being taught diversity with a focus on collaborative learning through projects and with the use of 21st century technology. There is also a Spanish language teacher for 3rd through 5th graders and I find that extremely important. I am quite pleased and very excited about my son's 3rd-5th grade years!

    Hello my name is Mary Severs and my daughter is a fourth grader at Jeffreys Grove and has been there since kindergarten. My husband Mark and I have been so pleased throughout the years. Danielle our daughter has enjoyed every single moment at Jeffreys Grove and loves all her teachers as well as her principal Nolan Bryant. I myself am an active PTA member and volunteer at the school and have enjoyed so much working with the children teachers and staff. And if anyone asked my daughter she would say Jeffreys Grove is the best school ever!

    I have been very impressed with the warm caring environment that exists at Jeffreys Grove. The teachers and administration seem to really care about helping all kids be successful. My son is a high reader in first grade and he is constantly being challenged and pushed academically. We are also thankful that he attends a school with a diverse population. This will help prepare him to function and compete in a global world.
