My son was diagnosed with ADHD last year. After trying a couple of medications that caused weight loss and ticks we decided to try alternative approaches. The teachers at Jacksonville Beach have been so supportive with developing behavior plans and implementing strategies. They report to us on a daily basis which is more than I ever expected. They also made me aware of the possibility of a 504 plan and were instrumental in bringing that to fruition. I could not be more pleased with what I have experienced in the past year at this school.
This is our fourth year at JBE. We love love this school and the advanced circulum. It's evident how much further ahead in their education my daughters are when they see their cousins and other friends with similar aged children. My girls are leaps and bounds ahead. I love the staff. Any time we've ever had a concern it had been immediately addressed. This family lives JBE!!
My daughter has been attending Jax Beach since she was in kindergarten. I would say the teachers are happy to be there and enjoy their job for the most part. The principal is a familiar face and gets involved with almost every event it seems. The parents are involved as well. Last year's Literacy Night was standing room only, just to give you an idea. I love the fact they do not only "teach to the test" and have a wide array of curriculum and activities they complete throughout the year. The only drawback I can say about this school, is that it is very challenging and may not be a great fit for all children based on that fact. Overall five stars!
Both of my sons went to JBE. I have one at Stanton and one at JWJ now. JBE is an awesome school and we could not have been happier. The curriculum was rigorous but it helped prepare them for middle and high school. The staff was great and everyone knew my children by name. Small school feel with the benefits of a first class education. In my opinion, no other school, public or private measures up to Jax Beach.
My son has been at JBE k-5 and now it's time for him to head to middle school, which I am not looking forward to. Jax Beach is a fantastic school. The curriculum is challenging, especially 4th grade, but it's worth it. The teachers are great, always willing to meet with parents, and will email with you every day if you'd like. The BEST elementary school!!!
I went to this school for k-5th and it was amazing. All the teachers were and are great and so was are principal! I am so lucky I got the opportunity to go here!
My daughter attended Jax Beach for 3 years and I could not have been happier. Unfortunately we had to transfer due to military orders and we miss it so much. There is not a school in the country that is better than JBE. She has had the most amazing teachers and the principal and staff are so wonderful. We are hoping to make it back in 2 yeard. Keeping my fingers crossed. A child is lucky to be a part of JBE.
I have spent time in the school with different activites as a volunteer. Teachers and staff are wonderful caring people they love their students
This time last year I was just hoping that my son would win the magnet lottery and get into JBE. And with alot of hopes and prayers he did. I am ecstatic that he got in. So far, I have had nothing but great experiences and I love the advanced curriculum. He loves the school and his teachers are wonderful. I am looking forward to the next several years, what a great headstart to get in life.
Why do you love Jacksonville Beach Elementary School? What is not to love! My boys love going to school at JBE. The teachers, faculty and PTA are wonderful.
The adminisration,teachers and students are all top notch at JBE. Our kids are blessed to have such a great school!!
The Teacher's, Assistant's, Principal, and Office Staff are friendly and welcoming. JBE allows and wants a lot of parent involvement and I love that:) JBE is not only an excellent school for my child's education but a wonderful environment for her to be in.
This is the best school my daughter has attended here in Jacksonville. The teachers are wonderful and challenge my daughter
top-notch dedicated teachers make learning fun. Can't think of anything I don't love about Jax Beach Elementary!
I now have three children in the school and I love it!! It has been the most consistent school program I have ever worked with and the teachers/staff are above and beyond the curve for the learning environment!
My granddaughter loves going to school and that is reason enough. When a child loves it - they must be doing everything right.
My daughter has gone to this school for the past 2 years ( k & now in 1st ) It is a wonderful school full of great teachers who really care about the children and thier educations. This is absolutley the best school out there!!!!
