Jensen is not just a school, it is truly a family. I feel so fortunate that my children are lucky enough to attend Jensen Elementary. The teachers and staff are extraordinary, and they go above and beyond to make learning come alive for students. There are countless extracurricular opportunities: Student Bank, Character Council, Literacy Night Planning Committee, J-Hawks on the Run, Code Club, Chorus, Band, etc. There is a small town feel to Jensen, which is special in a city as large as Urbandale. I have so much pride for being part of the Jensen family!
We have really enjoyed our experience at Jensen. The teachers and staff are extremely hardworking and dedicated to their students. We appreciate the small class sizes and the diversity the school offers. We have been so pleased with the Urbandale school district as a whole and would highly recommended Urbandale schools for an exceptional education.
Jensen Elementary has been such a wonderful surprise! The small class sizes and the dedication to the students by the staff is amazing! Our boys love the environment and feel that their teachers have become part of the family! I have encouraged many friends to move to Urbandale because of the incredible school system. Jensen has such a welcoming environment and fosters learning for all. With a little over 200 students all the teachers know our boy's names. It makes us feel that they are in a very safe environment. We wouldn't trade it for anything!
What a great school! The teachers are exceptional and extremely dedicated. We love the diversity and opportunities that a school this size allows. Cannot beat the class sizes, and with a smaller school it really feels like a community. We had the fortune of choosing this school as we do not live within its boundaries and are thankful everyday that my children are allowed to go to this school! Also located within a great community!
I have had two students go through Jensen. I am very impressed with the staff! I am an elementary teacher myself and I am very pleased with the education my children have recieved. Both are excelling as they have gone onto middle and high school and are in the talented and gifted programs. They have a very strong PTO and both teachers and parents are very involved. I would highly recomend this school.
My 2 daughters attended here sept - dec 2005. They absolutely loved the school. The teachers were great as was the entire staff. The quality of education that I felt my daughters were getting during their short time there was comparable to the parochial shool they previously attended in NYC. I would highly recommend this school to any child relocating to the Urbandale district.
