My two kids spend 2-3 hours/day on homework and they are learning at a fastest pace without loosing any interest in learning. All the students are completing to be better together and learning seen to be fun with my children s. The teachers and the principal have done a great job in motivating their students.
This school is unbelievable! One reason is the principle, Mr. Ector. The next reason is the support of the teachers and parents. James Franklin School should be the model for all other schools to strive to be like. I could tell many stories on how the school went the extra mile for my child and my neighbor s children.
I have seen a tremendous improvement of my son at all level since he attends JFS school. I was so impressed with the extened help from teachers,staffs, priciple and our parents involvements. I would like to say thank you to everyone to provide our kids a high quality of educcation.
During the past 8 years, all 3 of my children have attended Evergreen District schools led by Principal Will Ector. His personal involvement in the students' lives goes well beyond professional courtesy. Each student is made to feel as though they are an important part of the school family. The teaching and office staff follow Mr. Ector's example by giving of their personal time to show interest in all students, nurturing their personal growth as well as promoting their academic growth. The overwhelming parental involvement and support really reflects a feeling of 'community' here at James F. Smith School. What better education could be available to any child, than here at JFS.
I have three kids at JFS and the teachers and principal are completely dedicated to quality education and social development. Prior to joining JFS we were paying $20K per year for private school and we were recieving half the education. Keep up the great job!
I have sent my three children to two schools in the Evergreen school district over a period of eight years with Will Ector serving as principal at both. I cannot think of a finer man to have worked with, exceeding our expectations everyday!
My daughter attends JFS this year as a kindergartener. She enjoys every moment spent at the school. Mr. Althof is a wonderful teacher.
This is a top notch school program, I am from Iowa, where they take education very seriously, like a religion, the same quality goes on at JF Smith, It starts from the top, with Principal Ector and his staff, I highly recommend this school to anyone. My son has learned alot and looks forward to attending classes everyday.
I think James Franklin Smith is a great elementary school in Evergreen district. I am so glad that my daughter have been enrolled in this school. I would suggest this school can expand to 8th grade because this is a great school and they don't have to transfer to other middle school.
There is great support and discipline, as well as academic/moral greatness at JF Smith. I highly recommend anyone to attend that school. The principal, Mr. Ector, is exceptional -- he knows each student by name.
In the school year of 2001-2002, Tan had a great learning opportunity. JFS in my opinion ranks highest in all areas, including top principal (Mr. Ector) leadership and top teacher (Mr. Conway) quality. Student safety and discipline are always of high focus.
JFS is a wonderful School I cannot say enough good stuff for the experience I have for the last 2 years. Anita was very lucky to have a Teacher like Mr. James A. Conway and Mr. Will Ector as a Principal . Wish you all the Best for years to come. Regards D Sachdeva
