My child has gone to Jane Stenson for almost 3 years. I love it! The teachers, so far, have been great. I love the principal as well. I only have a few minor complaints but overall it's great. Curriculum that includes art, music and PE as well as small class sizes are the reason we left the city for a better school.
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.
