Partners, small groups, and collaborative learning communities are part of our everyday culture, where differences are seen as enriching in our school of diverse heritages.

The wonderful and amazing teachers in small numbers at this school who truly understand how to teach the gifted child and are not pressured by the new principal to weed out kids who have an IEP or are "too talkative" in class in effort to inflate test scores and increase Federal aid. They are gems in an otherwise hostile academic environment.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

Teachers who pressure children who require occasional redirect, or have an IEP to leave the school, in order to inflate overall school scores with minimal teacher direction are ineffective. Though, some other teachers are excellent at this school, but their numbers are fewer due to pressure from the new administration.

Amount of homework: Too much

Teachers who send home classwork to be completed at home because there is no supervision or direction in the classroom create unnecessary "homework."

Develops grit: Strongly disagree

Teachers and the new principal who pressure parents of children who require occasional redirect, or have an IEP to leave the school, in order to inflate overall school scores with minimal teacher direction, do not grit, persistence or determination.

Teachers and the new principal who pressure children who require occasional redirect, or have an IEP to leave the school, in order to inflate overall school scores with minimal teacher direction, do not model respect.

Caring teachers and staff at the top of their game. They have a strategy for learning and for building character in children. Parents that are very involved and supportive of each other. I have rearranged my home and job around this school because I have 3 children and want to give them all the opportunity to benefit from JBE.

I feel very fortunate that my child is at Jacksonville Beach Elementary. I tried 3 years before my child was accepted through the lottery. All the teachers are outstanding and cohesive with the administration. Moral is high, students are diverse, and parents are active and involved. There are great school activities, programs, and field trips. There are extracurricular opportunities such as Lego League, Chorus, and the annual school play. The PTA is very active. The front office has excellent, consistent, caring staff in Ms. Hoch and Ms. Selby. The children seem happy and are learning at an accelerated rate.
