Great administration, great staff and all-around great school. The school had to adjust a few years ago and they now serve pre-K through 5th grade. They made a smooth adjustment and everything has worked out well. The teachers and administrators are very caring and obviously love their jobs. I have had two children go through the school in the last few years and we were happy with everything. This is the best elementary school in Jesup!

This school is great! The staff loves the children and it shows. They will offer you any help you need and they are always there if you need anything. They even helped me to organize a 'Support Our Troops' fund raiser and allowed the students to bring in supplies for our troops. The only negative thing that I can say is that they are understaffed. They need more parapros (teacher's aides). They do call on the parents alot to help out. I do not mind, because they have helped me and my son loves the school and the teachers. Extracurricular activities, they have the normal music and gym, but not much else. The community here offers all the extra activities that a child needs. The kids at this school is only K-1 so it is understandable that not alot of activities is available. Tosha
