I moved in the middle of the school year after researching this school and it has lived up to my expectations. The teachers and staff have been very solution oriented with any concerns I might have brought up concerning my child. The communication between teacher, student, and parent is very transparent. I feel secure with my child in this school. The students seem to have more manners and are friendlier than the other school my child attended.

Now that my son is moving on to high school, I think we're going to really miss Jenkins Middle. Through 8th grade he had excellent teachers. Mr Kulbacki and Mr Pickering especially went above and beyond! Thanks and GO JAGS :)

Our family has been very pleased with Jenkins Middle School. I have a son who just finished and one who is about to start. Academically the school is top-notch. There are advanced classes in almost every subject and Pre-AP in the 8th grade. Double acceleration is available for math. I also know there is tutoring for students who need extra help. The teachers are very dedicated and top-notch as well. Mr. TerHorst, the principal, is wonderful. Very responsive to my concerns and at the school almost 24/7. The counselors are just as great. Mr. Janas is the best! Jenkins is also a very safe school. Safety of the kids is top priority, and that means physically and emotionally. Jenkins just won an award as a "school to watch" and I believe it is one of the best middle schools, if not the best, in the state of Colorado. There are clubs for every interest and our art teacher is super if that is your thing. You can't go wrong at this school.

I currently have a 7th grader at Jenkins. This is our first year in CO schools. I have loved our Jenkins experience. Have met with guidance counselors on a few occasions as well as his teaching team. They have all been very receptive to my ideas about his learning. Looking forward to my daughter attending next year!

Jenkins is the best middle school in Colorado Springs. The front office staff are excellent in all that they do, the teaching staff are constantly trying to improve... but most of all the technology supported by Mr. Moser is excellent. As the librarian there he is very willing to assist the teachers in the classrooms, the students with research and is always helping with technology in all the classrooms. What an asset.

I thought my experience at Jenkins last year was incredible. Mr. Eberhardt is the greatest teacher in the world for sure! I really like Mrs. Rich too. All in all, I highly recommend this school.

I'm just enrolling my son and my first impression was a new large school very organized. They keep each grade on a seperate wing, and less socialization between the grades which discourages bullying etc. Very clean, very helpful staff and a wide array of different programs and extracurricular activities. Looks like a great school.

I defimetly agree with kimberly. Jenkins was my worst experience in school. I am now in 9 th grade and out of the district. At jenkins i was tortured by everyday office visits and prejudice acts. My problems were never solved and i was never able to talk to someone about my problems. In that case it led to bad grades. Now in high school and in a different district i am happy and have good grades. *danielle twitty

This was the worst experience of any school district we have ever enrolled in. The asst. principal is difficult and the teaching staff is not supported by the administration. After pulling my son from this school, he has excelled in his new school. He is in honors classes, where at Jenkins the AP math class had 47 students enrolled. As a child of 2 public school teachers and the product of public school, I have always been an advocate for the schools. I will never recommend this school to any of our friends relocating to Colorado Springs. District 11 is over crowded and underfunded - still, it was the administrative staff at Jenkins that works against the parents. They complain that parents don't get involved, but complain when a parent is involved. Horrible school experience.
