I am a parent who made a call to this school simply to find out a little bit about the programs they offered, in particular whether they offer a low incidence cluster program for diverse learners. I was absolutely appalled at the way I was addressed. Complete lack of respect and courteousness. The tone specifically by the school counselor and the person who answered at the main office was about as rude and dismissive as you can get. I can't fathom ever sending a child to this school especially if you have to deal with the counselor even remotely. What a disgrace!

Our daughter is in kindergarten at Jamieson this year. Her teacher is an experienced and thoughtful educator and the principal is dedicated to the school and community. I am just so very pleased at our daughters experience so far.

This will be my sons first year at Jamieson and so far I like the classrooms, the teachers and the environment. Hope to see more once my son has been at the school for a while and also when they have finished the renovations.

Excellent neighborhood school! The staff is awesome and very resourceful. The leadership team is very knowledgeable about good teaching and ensures that students have access to various enrichment opportunities. I am proud to send my son to this great school.

Jamieson is a great school. We recently moved to the area and i love the fact that the school is real close. The teachers are amazing, involved, and helpful with the students progress and development. Very safe area with plenty of crossing guards also (:

My daughter looks forward to going to Jamieson everyday. She has shown steady development each year. The school is safe and the students are well behaved. The diversity makes the school very special with 23 languages spoken. The pincipal is very responsive to parent concerns and the teachers are engaged. The school yard unfortunately does not reflect the school and is a sea of asphalt. The parent organization has recently completed a masterplan which when complete will make the outdoor space as vibrant as the school.

My son is in first grade at Jamieson. My daughter will be going there for Kindergarten next year. My husband and I moved into the area because we wanted our kids to go to a good neighborhood school. I have been very happy with my son's progress. I walk him to school every day and have participated in some of the fundraisers, so I am pretty aware of what is going on at the school both on the playground and inside the school. I have been extremely impressed with the principal, Mr. Baughman. He seems to be on a first-name basis with all of the students and is well-respected. I always see him walking around, saying hello to parents, keeping an eye on things and being accessible to everyone. You can tell what a school is like just by walking in the doors and listening. You won't hear yelling in the classrooms or swearing by the students. The teachers are very accessible as well and have worked to meet my son's needs at his level. I am so glad that my son goes there and feel very fortunate that I don't have to drive him far away to go to a good school.

This school is okay. I have stayed because it has a safe environment for my children. I am very dissappionted at the lack of professionalism of the teachers. The school needs reform. A new playground would also be nice!

The teachers, administration and local school council are all very involved in the progress of the students, the overall academic programs and the opportunities for all students. The principal is professional on all fronts and is very involved on a daily basis. This is one of the best schools in Chicago. Many students are able to test high and are therefore able to enter into the selective High Schools.

Since the new principle has taken over (this is his second year) I feel that Jamieson's performance in tests and in the helpfulness of the teachers and other clerical staff have diminished greatly. I shudder to think what will happen in five years with Robert Baughman as the principle of this once fine school.

Jamieson School is a great school! It has relatively high scores for the area, an enthusiastic staff, and good community spirit. I highly recommend it.

My daughter is a 6th grader at Jamieson School. We literally bought a house near the school. We wanted our daughter to attend an excellent school. Jamieson tops them all in my opinion. The Principal has great leadership,Teachers are spectular and the staff employees really care about being their for the children.

Jamieson School is a wonderful place. My son has been enrolled since kindergarten. The teachers are caring; the homework very involved; notification for anything the school has is expedient. My son enjoys the diverse atmosphere and excels in his classes as well as the Illinois tests. I live in the neighborhood with a few other schools nearby but Jamieson provides the nicest balance overall. Even the crossing guard gives 100%! If you enjoy diversity, knowledgeable teachers and real progress for your child, I believe Jamieson, along with parental guidance, provides a good foundation for learning. The principal is new but appears to be involved and committed. The previous principal provided good leadership.

My son has been a student here for three years. He has attended other schools in Chicago. Jamieson is miles ahead of the other schools. The principal is excellent and he leads a well organized and concerned staff. I liked it so much I bought a house in the district to get Jamieson as my neighborhood school.

My Children have been @ Jamieson for 4 years now. When I first enrolled my children I was greeted by one person in particular... She was head of the Parent Patrol, volunteer tutor and a member of the P.T.O. ask your childs teacher if you can go on field trips, tutor or even help the art teacher with projects. Come and hang out in the playground during lunch. Once a volunteer...
