We're incredibly pleased with LJPS. I'm not exactly sure what some of these parents have issues with but they've been incredible to us the two school years we've been with them. Our youngest is having separation anxiety issues and his teachers and the entire staff have been more than supportive in helping him in the mornings! I'm not sure what parents expect out of these teachers but we've haven't met a bad one yet.
This school has the potential to be great, but the principle needs to go. Unless you are one of the favorites the front office staff will not acknowledge you when you come into the office. The principal will stand by her teachers regardless if they are wrong.. Point blank. This lady is known to put pre k students in ISS.( in school suspension) sad.
The principal always has an excuse when it comes to the teachers. My son is in first grade and its horrible. He's been sent to the office for not raising his hand, talking during lunch while the music was playing. I talked to his teacher who was very disrespectful to me when questioned and the principle said she probably had a bad day and that she's old school... So that made it acceptable I guess...
Notice how the 5 stars were before 2010. That was the last year for Mrs Loggins. This new principle is terrible, terrible, terrible!!!!!! please change her! my son went to the office for not sitting down apparently in the first month, and hes only in kindergarten!! are you serious??
