My son is currently finishing his kindergarten year at Trunnell Elementary, and I am impressed. I read the reviews below from 2009 and was worried, but I went to visit the school, met the teachers and met the principal and found nothing to worry about. Every single person that I have had contact with has truly impressed me with the amount of care, kindness, and dedication given to the students and families. This includes the principal, the counselor, the teachers, the staff, and the students. I can safely say that having been in all three kindergarten classrooms, I found a great productive environment where kids were excited to learn. My son went from barely reading, to reading at the level of a first grader and the year isn't over. I highly recommend Trunnell Elementary and I am looking forward to first grade.

Too many students are disruptive and nothing gets done. The lunchroom is a zoo and the staff doesn't seem to care.

My daughter loves Trunnell. She is challenged and supported and I have gotten great communication from teachers and staff.

I can not recommend this school to others. The new principal has been there about 4 years now. She has totally lost control of the discipline.

The discipline is horrible! Children talk back to teachers. There are no rewards for good behavior. Rewards that were in place five years ago have been dropped by the present principal.

Overall, I have had a good experience at Trunnell. More importantly, my son has enjoyed his experiences. My son has put forth very little effort and yet still received all As all year long. I wish the school had an honors program so that the children could be challenged. The teachers and staff seem to care about and get to know the children personally. I especially loved Mr. Brown. He is the best first grade teacher my son could have ever had.

k-3rd grade was fine, however by the time they hit 4th grade you never know what is going on, homework that makes no sense,not allowed to bring math books home, by 5th grade no books are brought home, homework is unexplainable,and 8th or 9th grd. level. my child has problems with math,however SOME kids in class get to have a math book? why them i dont know, i am thoroughly disgusted with this school. fundraisers every week it seems. all they and probably most jcps schools is cats testing,which is what they work on most of the time, so they can get more money. send your child to a traditional school or private if you can. i wish i did.
