Warren T. Jackson Elementary is a great school. Teachers are passionate about their job. I have 4th grader and 5th grader, and both class teachers are exceptional!

W.T. Jackson school in Atlanta is good school for curiculum and academically learning but not very good school to develop futur Human and adult. Grading is not fair, but manifest favors and preferences There is absolutely no communication with teacher except weekly newsletter!! Every personal mail to teacher stays without answer. To take appointment is terrible. The way the class is organized is to get the students to memorize stuff with minimum critical thinking or innovation. When our child asked more questions, it is notified like trouble! Isn't it amazing!!! And last point there is not much for ethnic diversity at this school. Academically, my son thrived, but socially he suffered because he's foreigner..... High ranking academics is not all...........

We have two kids attending different grades, and we are happy with our experience. The school has an active PTA and the teachers are doing good job in supporting students.

W.T. Jackson Elementary school in Atlanta is very good at maintaining a facade of a good school but doing nothing improve---the management keeps brushing critical issues under the carpet, and the classroom teachers strive to do the absolute minimum in teaching. Example, one class teacher, with a previously "successful" career in a lucrative profession, said she went back to school to get degrees in education just to teach. You would have thought she must be passionate about teaching, right? No! the way the class is organized is to get the students to memorize stuff with minimum critical thinking or innovation. The grading work is horrible---not only does this teacher not point out why an answer was wrong, she does not even show what the right answer should be. Moreover, the final grade is not even fair, but manifests personal favors and preferences. The effort is so minimum that we did not even get notification of any sorts for an extended period of time because the teacher got our email addresses and phone numbers all wrong! When issues were brought up, with concrete evidence, the management immediately went into denial. It is disheartening to realize that they would rather put all their time, effort, creativity into shirking responsibility, than to take that responsibility. Deeply disappointed by such ethics!

Not effective at developing the students. However, they are effective in coming up with ways to do absolutely the minimum.

Amount of homework: Not enough

Useful homeworks that develop critical thinking, artistic sense, and creativity is lacking if any. Useless homework that only help the teachers having an easy job done is too much.

The school develops unhealthy habits in students when interacting with their teacher, with nothing more than street smart.

Students develop unhealthy habit to cater to the teacher's personal preference, instead of stand out for her own merit. Even issues like bullying is brushed under the carpet.

Grading is not fair, but manifest favors and preferences. Upon Inquiry, no legitimate answer were provided. They just look deep into the floor and say something totally irrelevant.
