    I've lived in Willingboro for 15 years and my son attended JC Stuart from Pre-K to 1st grade. JC Stuart is a great school with supporting and nurturing teachers - most of the families were involved. I believe the school can use more funding from the district and state - who knows where the ridiculously high Willingboro taxes go (the 1st graders were using journals that said Welcome to Kindergarten). Principal Yezzi was a great principal - I believe she isn't there anymore.

    I would like to share our experiences with the public and say that J.C. Stuart has been a pleasant experience for the most part with our family. Both of my daughters have had a number of teachers in this school from Chesney to Bodiford to O'Donnell to O'Rourke and we have grown to love everyone of them. I especially appreciated the tutoring program that my daughter received last year. Thank you Ms. Hall and Mr. Curlen for your time sacrificed as we too understand that you have families of your own. Stuarts teachers take the time to help. It is us as parents that reinforce the lessons once they come home. As long as you are an active parent in helping your child succeed then your child will thrive at Stuart. Something as reading to your child for twenty mins every night can make a huge improvement in a childs academics. Its not worth mentioning the negative about Stuart as the POSITIVE outweighs the negative. No school on this planet is 5 stars. Lets be realistic. Keep up the good job Stuart! Go Sharks!!!!

    I have 1 child still at Stuart and 2 others who used to attend. They've all had really great teachers Mrs. Skufalous Mrs. Fairly (love her!) Mrs. King Mrs. Woody/Mrs. Jackson (my daughter cried for a month in Pre-K but later became so close to Mrs. Jackson-thank you!). I wish Mrs. Fairly was still teaching forth grade; my oldest is a junior in high school and she still asks about her. The only teacher I feel shouldn't be teaching young children at all is Mrs. M. Bodiford. I can't believe she's teaching 1st or 2nd graders. I know several parents who've had there child removed from her class and if you read the facial expressions of some of the teachers... My daughter had her when she was 9 and she's full of herself. At back to school night she talked more about her degrees than how she planned to work with the children. She'd be better at the high school level.

    It does not surprise me to see Marlo Fairlie complimented on this page. She had my son a few years ago and boy did he put her through the ringer with his behavior and antics. Mrs. Fairlie not only has nerves of steel and a great sense of humor but is an excellent educator. She "knows" and reads children very well. Well we got through that year and my son thanks to her is now a solid B student which compared to his challenging situation is great.

    I have a child that attends Stuart. She has had 2 great teachers so far. Mrs. Fairlie in Kindergarden and Miss Cope in 1st grade. Each of these teachers has been very involved in their students. My child has done very well in each grade and I will continue to make sure that this is the case throughout her academic career. If all parent took the time and got involved in their child's academic career the district may not get such a bad rap. I have the upmost confidence that Stuart will improve under the new principal. Mrs. Yezzi has done a lot of changes just under a years time. I also know that if you have an issue and take it up to her she will work to resolve it.

    My son is in Pre-K4 with Mrs. Morello. She is a fantastic teacher!! We are very happy with the school.

    This school does not treat kids fairly and has alot of problems with discipline. The level of education they recieve is also very poor. I pulled my child out for safty reason - I suggest you do the same.

    This school just reopened in 04. I was hoping for a better experience than I had at another willingboro school. I was wrong to think that this district would enforce 'no tolerance' discipline codes. Bullying in the willingboro schools seems to be okay to the district. Willingboro schools are discriminative and play favorites and I am disgusted to say I went to these schools and graduated from them. I would never recommend these schools to anyone.
