Very impressed with principal and teachers. Clearly care about student success and are very approachable.

This is a great school. The teachers are very supportive of their students and although they are young they manage to connect, build trust and get the best out of their little learners. The principal is very responsive and teaches respect and creativity, leading by example and taking the time to connect personally with the families. Would definitely recommend this school. Could improve on extra curricular activities however.

Fine school - except for special needs. Glad it worked out for the commenter below, but my child was kicked out. Once he was better (performing normally), they wouldn't let him back in, citing that they didn't have the capacity for a special ed student. Once we got a lawyer, we had to go to transfer to another school in the district (after 6,000 in legal fees). Now he is in a gifted program in middle school. That was our experience with Jane Stenson, and their principal, who I feel was the core of the problem.

Worst school I have ever encountered in my life. Unresponsive to questions. The teachers are unfriendly, the office staff is rude and the principal is a bully. I would strongly suggest if you are thinking about sending your child here that you rethink your choice.

Yes, the teachers are young but NOT inexperienced; most of them have graduate degrees or are in the process of getting them. In my opinion, the school fosters a very good environment of cooperation and encourages parent involvement.

My daughter has been going to Jane Stenson for a while now and I really like it. The staff is extremely friendly both in person and over the phone. The security is good. No one can just come and out when they want. The teachers are quick to respond to you both by phone or email. They become available when the parent is available. All I can say is nice things about this school. I would recommend this school if you live in the district.
