I am so impressed by Jordahl Elementary as a whole. The staff is friendly and most importantly, child-friendly! Teachers are excellent-thoughtful, caring and really push your child to achieve. The general environment is wonderful. A blue slip system (positive paws) is used to promote positive behavior amongst the children and a colored card system- Green, Blue, Yellow, Red (for younger grades) to encourage the best behavior in the classroom. This was a new method of discipline to me, and I was unsure at first, but it only pushed my son to be/act his best at school, which really helped at home. The principal even receives your child at the drop-off point, and employs staff supervision until your child safely enters the school, which I found comforting. In addition, safety measures include automatic locks on doors, so your child is secure from outside harm/persons. As a military family, we have been at 4 schools in 3 years, and this is the best experience we have had. Hopefully, we can remain here until our son finishes grade school!
I had 4 children enrolled in Jordahl at one time. 2 in 5th grade, 1 in 4th, and one in Kindergarten. By then, we had been attending Jordahl for 3 years. Overall, I give Jordahl an Amazing 5 stars! We ran into a few issues with teachers, but it's to be expected anywhere you go. One of my kids is Special Needs and I can't say enough about the wonderfully caring team that helped him! Parent involvement and opinions are highly appreciated. Miss. Meyer and Mr. C. were exceptional. Kudos to the Front Office - Jo and Marge, you guys rock! You always know what's going on.
Great school! The entire staff cares greatly for each and every child. This is apparent the moment a child is dropped off in front of the school, and the principal herself meets the child at the car door ensuring the child is safely out of the vehicle and across the parking lot. From the crossing guards to the teachers, librarian and administrators, this school's staff shines!
This school have a family enviroment and work like a team. And always care about the military kid and support them
We moved from TN to Fountain, Co. My son is going to Jordahl and he loves it so much, the staff is sooooo friendly and helpful and his teacher Mrs. Andert is awsome!!! hope we never have to move again.... Thanks Jordahl!!!!
Two of my four children have been in this school for the past two years. I love this school and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The office staff are wonderful!!
I just moved to this area. I love living over here. I have to boys, one in first and the other in fifth. The staff is SO friendly and very helpful. The boys and I are enjoying Jordahl. It is a great Elementary. They are learning so much more and they want to come home and do homework! Even my fifth grader! Jordahl offers a lot for the students. They have more to give the students. They like to be a part of your family. We have only been here a month. I do wish, I would have been a part of this family six years earlier.
My children have gone to Jordahl for a total of six years. I love how close the staff work together in creating a safe and friendly learning enviroment. Parents are always welcome to join the classes. Teachers are very good at communicating with parents. The Principal Mamie Duffendack is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure all children are treated equally and are given the best possible education. I would recommend this school to anyone.
This school we have found to be excellent for our third grader. He reads on a fourth grade level, and the teaching staff is awesome. Our son is also a math and science whiz and the school seems to encourage excellence.
My Child attended Kindergarten at Jordahl Elementary. It was a great experience for him. His teacher was thorough and kind.
Great, great, great! As the parent of a kindrgartener, and a special needs preschooler, (with also a toddler)-- I'm soo fortunate to have my children in this school district. The preschool teacher is absolutley fabulous as are her helpers- and what I have seen from the kindergarten class promises to be equally as rewarding. Parent involovelment is always encouraged, the kids are excited to go to school, and the test scores are high.
