My grandson attends pre-school here. The only thing negative I have to say is that they are not really taught much of anything. Pre-school here is basically to get them use to what it is like to go to school. There is no homework. This troubles me. The teacher is very impressed with my grandsons knowledge. They were asked to do patterns and he was the only one who could do a complicated pattern. I fear he was learning more at home than he currently is at school. His/their minds are like little sponges right now. They need to be challenged. He has a very nice teacher. It is hard to know how to accurately rate the school. My grandson loves going and loves his teacher. It has been a good experience for him so far. Reading other ratings I feel parents scored a little lower than appropriate. Some who were happy didn't even give a rating. For that reason I'm giving a score of five to help give a more accurate overall rating. Otherwise I would have given a 3 & 1/2.

My son attended 1st grade here. It was an awful experience. There was a field trip that was cancelled, the school never informed parents that trip was cancelled. At least 3 days a week the bus was over 30 minutes late to drop kids off and there was never any communication from the school. My son has special needs and they denied him services saying he was fine. He was behind in Language Arts and they had to call me to get help with his outburts. He was punished 19 times in 10 weeks for not being able to complete his work on time when his disability is known for needing extra time to complete work. When I addressed my concerns with the principal, I was flat out told by him that communicating with the parents was not a priority. Also, my son missed many days of school due to health reasons, I sent in a doctors note every single time. I got letters home about unexcused absences. When he didn't have a single unexcused absence. I had to take time out of my day to fix their screw ups so I didn't have to go to court for their failure to do their jobs. Absolutely nothing positive to say about our experience at this school!

Take these reviews with a grain of salt....Everyone will have different opinions based on their own child. I have 2 children currently at this school. We came from another school (same district) that we loved and I took quite a while to warm up to this school (My hubby says I was being snooty, he may be right). That being said I think it is a fantastic school. I know we earned some higher awards there this past year. Dr. Dye (The Principal) is VERY involved I can't believe someone said he didn't care (again take it with a grain of salt) I have never been unable to reach him and regularly see him outside helping kids into the school or just greeting parents. I see him at every assembly and performance. My kids love him too. The teachers so far have been great. Some offer after school tutoring (at least mine did when she needed it) I love the amount of diversity in this school and we have made some really great friends. My only real gripe is I would like there to be a little more involvement/updating on the website (that is how I really stay informed while I am working) and I would say it needs to be a little more organized when there are awards/performances. We love JPES!!

My son attended JP for 4 years and last year went so poorly that I pulled him out at the end of the year. This school has some very good teachers and a few that should not be teaching and a Principal that didn't seem to care very much about my concerns for my child even when he was bullied.

My daughter has had a lot of bullying problems at this school. She has been punched in the face, called names, and been made fun of. She has homework every weekend and during Spring Break. I don't mind homework, but kids should get a little break every once in awhile. I appreciated the ease at which it was for my husband and I to get access to her Infinite Campus, and her teacher does a good job of staying in touch with us, but overall, I can't wait to get her out of this school.

My son had a terrible time at this school. He had lots of problems here and was always sent to the office. His problem was that he was bored. His teacher had no idea how to keep kids busy that finish their work before the other students. His teacher would give him one worksheet with a letter to color and then write the letter over and over. These take him all of 5 mins. Then he had to sit still for 30 more mins. We pulled him out of the school and he has been apart of a more advanced home school program and is doing much better.

I can not believe anyone would give this school one star let alone three. This is the reason I moved to NY for real education for my child. They did nothing or him and he is an educationally gifted child that almost went to way side. It was a horrible time for him.

I am not going to say that I love this school, but I definitely have enjoyed the time my child has spent going here. However my daugther just loves this school and its teachers. Coming from a different school district, where most of what she's learned was what my husband and I taught her, I was and still am impress with what my child has learned via the teachers and volunteering parents. This place request that all who attends: students, parents, teachers and staff be totally 100 % involved. Love that!

I cannot say this is the best school that my children have attended. My son's kindergarten teacher was not co-operative in helping me to get him tested for a learning disability, and when I approached the administration they supported the teacher. Once we changed schools, he did a lot better. She also belittled most of the children in the class. The administration was not very supportive when it came to working with the parents in resolving issues either. I am not impressed with this school and if given the choice will not send my children back. If the admin staff supports teachers like this, then I chose to find another school.

Wonderful school, the teachers are really involved in what is best for the students and getting them motivated to learn. During my time at Jefferson Parkway I was a student teacher and here I learned more about what qualities a great teacher should have and how they should teach. I hope to one day teach at this wonderful school again.
