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.

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.
