I'm glad for my children to be out of this school. Whoever hired the principal needs to be fired!

I wish I would have known this site existed before I enrolled my child there. She would have either went to a private school or been home-schooled. That place was a nightmare. I would suggest that anyone reading the reviews and considering enrolling their child that they try and make contact with another parent or parents.

J-Town Elementary is an AWESOME school! I wouldn't send my daughter anywhere else! She will be entering the 4th grade in the fall and has been at this school since Pre-School. She is a straight A student who loves school! The PTA is very active and very supportive. They have a number of activities throughout the school year for the entire family that are either free or very reasonably priced. These activities are always VERY well-attended and the students look forward to them. The teachers are quite special as well. They take the time to develop a relationship with their students and they really care about them. Many of them have been at the school for a number of years. Even though there are quite a few students at J-Town, it doesn't feel that way. My child isn't just a random student, I am not a random parent. They KNOW who we are because they CARE!! We matter! The theme at J-Town is "Teamwork makes the Dream Work" and I believe that is true! Everyone works together to make sure the students learn and feel safe and nurtured. Jeffersontown Elementary School is a FAMILY!! Why would you send your child anywhere else? I know I wouldn't!!!

Jeffersontown Elementary is more than a school, it's a family and home away from home for my daughter. The staff shows a strong unity and true devotion for educating their students. They embed a love for learning and provide students the means to reach success in their own unique ways. The principal, assistant principal and counselors work to create an environment where students know they are important, feel they belong, and feel safe to grow and mature. The vast array of artistic, athletic and extracurricular activities make the first years of school exciting for students and affords all the opportunity to discover new interests and talents. I highly recommend this school. Since I'm not homeschooling my daughter, there's nowhere else I would want her to be. We are proud to be J-town Jaguars!

My school is Jeffersontown Elementary and I have nothing but the best experience with this school. The principal is great. The teachers are awesome and they are there if you have any problems. They take their time with the students if they are having problems. My daughter is in the 4th grade and loves going to school.

This is a great school... The teachers/staff here are wonderful, they listen and actually care about the kids here... I have two children who attend this school and they both love it... It's like their second home, ( since kids are in school as much as home).. would recommend this school to anyone...

Our daughter attended Pre-K and Kindergarten at J-town Elementary and has had a wonderful experience. Both of her teachers have been more than we could have hoped for and more.

My child is in the 1st grade at J-town Elementary and we could not be happier! Their art classes are impressive, as is the reading, math, science! They have recess every day if the weather permits. It is important to promote physical fitness with obesity on the rise and many schools are leaving that out. The principal and teachers are fantastic with children and make learning fun! My child loves to go to school and is learning the appropriate skills for her age! I went to private schools growing up and she is learning more than I did in 1st grade. I would definitely recommend this school!

As a teacher in Jefferson Co., I was encouraged by other teachers to send my son to a traditional school. I decided to check out J-town anyway since it was our home school and close to the middle school where I teach. I spent 2 hours with the Principal grilling him about test scores, discipline, and curriculum. We decided to give J-town a try and we have been extremely pleased with the staff and my son's progress. He was reading books before he left kindergarten and he is a math whiz! My hat goes off to Mrs. Mouser and Mrs. Baker for a job well done. I also want to thank Mr. Foley for always listening ---you are a great leader!
