I have been a parent volunteer at this school for 5 years. The teachers are phenomenal; experienced, dedicated, and hard-working. They put in HOURS of their own time, are totally open to parent/community input, and use creative teaching methods to ensure that each student is able to succeed. Graduates from Jack Norton have gone on to institutions of higher learning such as UC Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford, and UCLA - schools you don't get into unless you can make the grade. JNES provides a great foundation, but teachers are only part of the educational team. The students' and their families' involvement truly determines the richness and value of the educational experience at any school . You get out of it what you put into it. The teachers and staff at Jack Norton have created a warm educational environment where everyone has the opportunity to succeed. Our community is so fortunate they're here!
