Many of Jensen's top teachers have left and have been replace, the few positions that have been replace, are so out of their league, the students have full control of the classrooms and the school.

It was an pretty good school until this new principal got in. She is horrible and a bully. She has made it so that many of the students want to transfer and get out of their Jensen has lost a lot of good students and good staff. They need to get rid of the new principal, Dr. Conley.

While i am not a parent or teacher and a student i think that Jensen Elementary Scholastic Academy is a great place to be.While some students are disruptive,teachers do a great job at preventing bad behavior.Alot of things have been changing however as we do NOT have 100% students black at all and have some diversity.Even though i am still just a kid i will recomend sending your students to jensen. P.S. We now have a new leader of the school ever since sometime around 2013-present.

As a student at Jensen Academy Janae Armstrong I believe thang my school is one of the best schools in the district. We go above and beyond the expected, are test scores are not perfect. We try are best to do the best of are ability. The teachers and staff push us as hard as they can to keep us educated, and become the most educated person we can be. That is my opinion of my school please send your students to Jensen Scholastic Academy forget what any body else says we at a great school to be at. Hope to see you soon at my school.

The principle here is amazing and super sweet, however I still haven't been paid for a job I did for them 2 month ago, so I feel like this school may need $5,000. It feels like it's in the middle of a transition for the better, but as of Sept. 2013 they have not quite got there. Keep working at it Jensen staff!

As a former teacher at Jensen, i can not say enough good things about the staff there. However the administration is horrible. There was a very little organization and things were often given last minute to teachers, causing poor instruction. there was also a lack of materials needed to prepare children for the ISAT testing. I think that with the right administration this school could really turn it's self around! The teacher's tried their hardest to stick it out, but many leave after one year of teaching there.

Jensen is a great school with awesome teachers, including a Drive Award winner. The admininstration in weak and their is a need for better disciplinary action for behavioral problems, overall it is an upcoming school.
