In my opinion, Jane Ball has fallen apart. There is a lot of administration turn-over, and their high ability program is lacking. Communication is poor, the lunch program is terrible, and little to no parent participation. There are too many classroom distractions and disruptions as well and kids are not disciplined appropriately.

These people should feel ashamed of themselves. My godson has been getting in trouble almost everyday:on a verge of suspension and being expelled for small actions that in his eyes are nothing but innocent. He was sent to a principal's office for touching a girl's arm, then suspended for sending kissie faces at a girl in class. He doesn't have many friends & keeps emotions to himself making the rest of the school look at him as a freak. No matter how innocent his actions are, they're being blown out of proportion just so they have a reason to keep him out of school. A kid picking on a 'special' boy by calling him names has the same meaning as a teacher / principal making the boy feel like he doesn't belong ... It's called bullying! No child should miss out on education just because they're different. Teachers are there to create a fun but most importantly SAFE environment got our kids, something that THIS school is clearly lacking.

We've had family in and out of Jane Ball for over 20 years now. One of my children has finished the 5th grade (it only goes till the 5th grade) and I have two children who are still going there. It is a wonderful school. We have VERY high rate of involved parents which truly makes a difference. I have nothing bad to say about it and I would recommend it to anyone.

We were new this year my son a third grade has been picked on and bullied all year, while the Principal knows of the problem he is doing nothing to help leaving it to the teacher My son went from enjoying school to asking if he could stay home everyday from being bullied. I hope things change in this school otherwise they are going to loose a lot of kids. we are moving to another school district this year a better one.

Jane Ball is an excellent school! The learning environment is just fabulous. Plus you can tell the principle realy cares about the children. We were new to the community last year and have felt so welcomed! From the ladies in the front office to the PTA and all of the wonderful teachers and everyone in between. I would recommend Jane Ball to anyone! Happy Parent

Jane Ball is like a family. Everyone can express their thoughts, concerns, and feelings; and they don't get disregarded as nothing. Parents are always welcome in classes to help. In fact, they are encouraged. The teachers are always willing to share their thoughts on your children and call with concerns as well as praises.

I feel like the school make our community where I live. I love that I always know what is going on in my child's school and have so many caring staff members and parents.
