My daughter goes here currently and for the past 3 years she has been so happy with her success's in her education. This would not have been possible without the wonderful teachers she has had, or the active role the principal Mr. Terry plays in each of the kids lives daily. TEACHES education as well as responsibility for yourself and others. My daughter has never once complained about bullying, and I have asked believe me bc I know its a huge problem within JCPS. I am so very please with with this school.

This school had been a great help for my children in preparing them for middle school. A state test does not determine how well your child is doing many children have anxiety while testing. Also, have a timed test creates anxiety. However, the teachers of Jacob are wonderful and make learning fun. The have an advanced education.

My school has a wonderful new principal that isn't actually new. He has invested 19 years of his life here and he truly wants what is best for the students here.

I attended Jacob while in grade school and it has only improved over the years. My 1st grader reads at a high level. There is an open relationship with parents. I am very pleased with Jacob.

I feel like Ms. Williams is one of the best principals in the Jefferson County Public School system. It is going to be an honor for my son to attend.
