I am a parent of children who go to JES and I am also a teacher at JES! My little girl started 2nd grade stuggling did not matter what I did to help her! But for the first time she made honor roll this year and was in a beauty pageant, two things that looked impossible for her to achieve when school started but because of her teacher and the programs they had to help academically and with self-esteem she has blossomed!! Can't wait to see what happens next year!

Jesup Elementary prides itself on putting kids first. We ask ourselves questions like, 'How will this impact the students?' or 'In what way will this benefit the children?' Administration, faculty, and support staff work together to make JES a great place to learn.

Mr. MCPipkin is a great Principle.He realy tries to conect with the students & their parents.He is understanding to individual problems & solves them any way he can. The teachers are all the best in the country, They treat their students like they are their our children,They realy care about what their children are going through at school and at home. This school system tries their hardest to involve the parents in every thing going on at their schools,if your not involved in your childs school its your fault.The school nurse at this school is very helpful & carring.I wouldn't let my 3 children go to any other school system.
