This school was very disappointing. The teachers do not individualize the student's learning and every child has to conform to the student who needs the most assistance. End of the year ceremonies were in jeopardy as "the students who do not receive awards may feel bad." At a school event one evening, parents were smoking in the hallways and were very rude during the children's performance to the point the children could not be heard. This behavior was tolerated by administration. I am relieved my children will no longer have to attend this school.

I have 2 kids that currently attend this school. My daughter is in1st grade, my son is in 5th grade. I must say I am very disappointed in this school. There aren't enough character space for me to list all my disappointed. The experience my family and I have of this school since our kids started going here last year 2012 hasn't been a good one. The only positive thing I can say is that the assistant principal is great. Anytime I had a concern I always would speak to her instead of the principal. She in my opinion handled my concerns and I appreciated that. But that is not enough for my kids to attend next school year. So they will not return back to S.Bryan Jennings Elementary.

I have found the communication at the school to be a bit lacking. I will get something sent home about a field trip, event or summer program and it will be missing all sorts of information. This happened numerous times in the year. Everytime I need to call to get more infomation. The office is very helpful though. The other issue that I have is volunteering. My husband and I both filled the volunteer form out at the beginning of the year and specifically told the teacher we were interested in participating in any way possible. We did not receive a call or note the entire year. I spoke with other parents that said the same thing. Volunteers can be such a great resource (more than a chaperone on a field trip): career day, parties, reading to the kids, projects, field day, etc.

My son is in the 6th grade at SBJ. He has attended this school since he was in kindergarten. I have always been very pleased with the school and the staff has always been willing to go out of their way to assist and help with my child's education. This is a wonderful school !!!

The School and faculty are absolutely wonderful, However I am 'VERY' unhappy with the Principal Mr. Archibald. I am a parent of a child with learning disabilities. In the past two years we have had several issues with BULLYING on the school bus, and at school. Mr Archibald has been of no help to us, and always makes me feel like I am the offender, rather than the parent of the victim of bullying. Well, I now take my son to school and burn my own gas, instead of him having to take the bus and be harassed The few times my son has stuck up for himself he has been called to the office and was reprimanded. The reason I haven't switched schools is because my son has a trust between himself and his teachers. My sons teachers are exceptional, but I am NOT a fan of double standards!

SBJ has been great with their academic programs. The school has quality teachers. Parent involvement is average. Extracurricular activities are available. The student to teacher ratio is low which is an avantage to both the teacher and the student. The teachers do show that they care about their students academics.

I am so greatful to have my daughter in this school. Its her first year and I thought since she didnt go to preschool until she was 4 almost 5 and that she was shy would hurt her in school. But I was so blessed to have the teacher that she did. Her teacher took time out to get to know her and I am amazed at how much she has learned. They are very good with everything from beginning to end. Especially since I work full time and can't always be there for her, I am glad to know that I can communicate with the teacher in email as well. I am so happy that she is doing so well and will continue to do so. Her teacher even picked out next years teacher based on my daughters needs.

My daughter attended the school for 2 years; it was an amazing experience, especially because I was apprehensive about public schools. The teachers and curriculum are at a high standard and students are very much encouraged to be at their best full-time. Parents and teachers are communicating effectively and they know your child! The school actively seeks parent involvement and offers great rewards programs for the kids: every Friday a good student is awarded a 'goodie' which in turn drives them to participate more. The school has music and art to enhance your child's creativity - an artist of the week is picked and their work placed in the cafeteria for everyone to see. There are several court of awards per year and the PFA is very active throughout the year.

My children have attended SBJ for the last four years and my overall opinion is a positive one. The administration and teachers are supportive and very accessible. Disciplinary issues are handled swiftly and fairly with importance placed on overall safety. SBJ provides many and diverse after school programs. The children are encouraged to succeed and their successes are recognised and celebrated.
