This is a good school regarding teaching your children. However, many of the office staff is "rude and impatient". I am not sure if this is triggered from stress in trying to maintain the school's reputation or what. Things are not always explained thoroughly by the office staff which sometimes causes friction. I have worked with many schools and have found this to be the worst in dealing with parents which causes much frustration. Some need to retire early or go to classes on better communication and customer service!
Most, not all, of the teachers here are super, a very caring and responsive group of professionals. There are some that should've retired years ago and are obviously tired of their jobs. That being said, the teachers who are great are REALLY great. Great parent groups and many extra curricular activities for your kids. Many second language kids and that gives a very international feel to the school. They used to have a fabulous ELL teacher, Mrs. Anderson, but I don't know where she went. She was so good with the kids and a pleasure to talk to, I always thought she should have her own class. We miss Mr. Serban. The new principal is kind of harsh.
great school, great teachers, and staff, unbelievably outstanding principal. This school offer excellent academic curriculum with paying attention to differences in learning abilities. It's mostly great for the special focus on the moral characteristics or the students, it seems that everyone is very nice, no bulling no judging, in the contrary the kids collaborate and help each other.....LOVE this school.
The quality of the teachers at Jamacha is above average, the support staff incredibly child centered, Ms. kathy, Ms Michelle, Ms Waterhouse, Ms Ramierez, all provide hundreds of children with an out pouring of love. Truly above average. Children are blessed to attend Jamacha.
I am now a 5th grade parent that has seen my child through every grade here, I think the Teachers are great as well as the Principal and his team in Administration. I have been very active in the PTA, The parents who are not involved are always the ones to complain!. Get involved, meet some great people..your child will see the rewards! Thanks Jamacha for doing the best you can with the dollars you get!
