Susan Bell worked as an aide for students with special needs throughout Alta Loma School District. Despite the fact that she received little to no training in order to appropriately serve the needs of many students, her innate, nurturing, motherly care along with her keen observation and excellent decision making skills enabled her to assist classroom teachers and students (plural as she provided assistance to any teacher/student in need, not just those "assigned" to her) in an exceptional manner. I am so very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with her. I am quite sure that there are many students who share my thoughts.

One of the main reasons I moved my family to Alta Loma was that the school district is GREAT! I couldn't be more pleased with Jasper Elementary!

we really loved this school until my son went into the 3rd grade. The teacher was a bully and had favorites. She called the kids names and picked on them. When I addressed her she knew how to cover her tracks and the fact she ia best friends with the principle didnt help. She was a horrible teacher and I tried to remove my son from the class but their was no help from the school. Needless to say I moved away just so that my younger son wouldnt have to go through tht nightmare. Unfortuately I was too late for my oldest, which is the worst feeling as a mother. However before her I had no complaints besides they focus too much on assemblies and not enough on academics. But my warning to other parents if a teacherdoes truly show they want parent volunteers that should be a huge red flag!

I really love this school. My daughters love it here and I would not have them go any where else.

Jasper is an excellent school. The teachers are very invovled. Administration is wonderful. The principle is very visible when we are dropping off and picking up our children. My son and daughter both attend. One problem, there are just a few teachers who have been there to long and perhaps could be a little burned out.

We moved to this neighborhood so that our daughter could attend Jasper. She will be going into her 3rd year (2nd grade) for the 05-06 school year. Japser is a great neighborhood school with strong leadership and parental involvement, high test scores, and a very active PTA. It is not uncommon for teachers to have taught parents as well as their children at Jasper. The teachers are experienced, highly qualified and credentialed. There are choral and music presentations throughout the year and an end of year talent show. A Champion of the Week assembly recognizes children in each grade level who have gone that extra mile. Principal Early is accessible and willing to hear concerns and suggestions. We have been very happy thus far with our daughter's academic and social growth.

Jasper is a fantastic public school. I have a 10 year old, who will be starting 5th grade this fall. He has attended Jasper since kindergarten. This school is great because due to the success of most of the students, many of the new programs are implemented there first. There are many reading programs(that start in kindergarten),tons of extracurricular activities that promote community, culture, music and art. Another wonderful aspect of Jasper is that many of the teachers have themselves had (at one time or still do) have children enrolled there, because most of them are from the community.

We moved into this area and had high expectations with Jasper. This is our first year at Jasper and we are disapointed with our son's 2nd grade teacher. Overall, we are surprised at the lack of leadership and the lack of hospitality.

Jasper has a great deal of parent involvment. That staff is really nice and they seem to work well together. There are a lot of programs going on, such as champion of the week and other class room reward programs. My children are very happy at this school.

One of the reasons that we moved to Alta Loma was because of the schools. We have been very pleased with the education that our kids receive and that they have the opportunity to to excel since the school offers different levels of acadamics. As for the level of parent involvment...the outside activities that the school has seems to be well received and in my experiences have always seen a good turn out. The same parents are always on the PTA and such, just as at many other schools. But some of us prefer it that way. Alta Loma School have outside instructors who specialize in the music and sports programs. This works well and the kids look forward to these days.

This was the first year our children attended Jasper and we were very pleased. This school has a good reputation and high API scores. The principal is highly visible, ready accessible, and 'user friendly'. The teachers seem to really care about the academic, social, and emotional development of the students. We were especially impressed with the level of care, concern, and consideration the students are expected to have for each other. It's refreshing to see such high expectations for our youth.

We have been a long term Jasper family and have been dissapointed in the leadership changes at this school. We were skeptical to learn that there was going to be another change in principal for the 2003/2004 school year. But this turned out to be a good change. This year the new principal met with every child to discuss ways to increase their school successes and do their personal best. The children came home feeling encouraged that the principal wanted to meet and know each and every one of them. So, she's off to a good start. Now, we just want the School District to keep her in place. The school's API scores are good and have been steadily rising each year. At Jasper there are good teachers, a few bad ones, and a few new enthusiastic teachers. If you are new to this area, you will love this school.

I have one child attending Jasper and I have been very pleased overall. I am really excited that this school has exceeded the API goal for this year. Of course some teachers are better than others, but I can't complain. My child has learned so much in his first two years of school. He has been able to participate in some really great school activities and events that he has really enjoyed. The on-campus childcare program has been really great also. It is so affordable and convenient. The program director meets with the teachers regularly which helps keep the children on track as far as homework and other school related things. It's really a great program and a great school!

All but one of my child's teachers at Jasper have been excellent. They all, but the one, have been very strong in teaching and very tender and good with their students. The leadership has never been good at this school. Parent involvement in this school has always been awesome. There is a new principal for the 2003-2004 school year and I hope that she will really step up to the plate and rebuild the leadership and win the parents trust.
