I attended this school as a child and I absolutely loved it!! I went back recently, and it feels exactly the same. The teachers are helpful, the staff is great, and the material is still very insightful.

My son attends Jonesboro. His teacher was excellent. Mrs. Craig was very patient and very informative. He had a great time and he learned a lot his kindergarten year. I was a little skeptical at first but after getting to know his teacher and the staff they are really patient with the children. Didn't take long for me to feel completely comfortable with them.

Jonesboro Elementary is an excellent school. They have teachers that are qualified to teach and are concerned about their students. They have made many improvements not only in acedemics but also in extracurricular activities.

This school has improved by leaps and bounds. I have lived in this area for over 43 years. My children as well as my grandchildren have attended this school.

My son attends JE, and the quaility of his education is suffering. His teacher is more concern with test scores, and covering material more than she is with him and the other students learning the information. I do believe that schools should be for learning, but learning should also be fun. When you treat kids like animals, they act like animals but when you give them a caring and nurturing environment they grow into strong, successful indiviuals. I would rate this school at a weak 3 out of 10.
