Posted April 18, 2014

I am very pleased with my daughter's teacher. She regularly goes above and beyond to keep us informed of what is going on in class and individually with our daughter. Our daughter is quiet/shy and her teacher saw through that to find her strengths and her potential. She is so good that she even has "codes" with my daughter who is afraid to speak in front of the whole class. This is our first child in school and Mrs. Jacobson has made it very easy on us as I was nervous about the whole thing in the beginning. I feel that she would do anything necessary for her students. My daughter loves her! I like the security features the school offers with locked doors and pick up lists. I am happy with the school.
