J. K. Haynes Charter School is the most best cultural oriented, loving, and caring. I don't care what no one says. J. K. Haynes is a great experience for any child. I volunteered every change I get. My kids loves J. K. Haynes and they miss it very much. We wished Mrs. Haynes would have a school here in Morrow, Georgia. This is a school that cares about the childs well being in teaching the child what the child need to learning, including their heritage. This what my childrens Ne-Ne has to say about J. K. Haynes Elementary Charter School: "Every Black child deserves a J K Haynes Elementary School in their education. They are simply wonderful... and the proof is in how our children learn and progress there. I wish I could clone the school... it is truly a Village concept... Black teachers invested in their students education and success... and children that love their environment." Angie & Greg's youngest 2... Enjoy PJ - Precious Journei Alexander GJ - George Joseph Alexander I wish I could post the pictures that she took at this school and let you judge for yourself. You will see how wonderful the school is really is. ~Angela T Alexander

This school is worthy of commendations and accolades for their commitment and dedication to young learners. There is a small student teacher ratio compared to other schools, which allows teachers to give frequent and ongoing personalized support to students. The overall atmosphere of this school is conducive to producing future leaders and students who are confident in their academic and social growth

J. K. Haynes is still lacking unity. As a previous parent reported, they seem to still have teachers that behave extremely childlike. Most of the students are in need of guidance, not a home away from home. The teachers engage in name calling of the students and support disruptive behavior by allowing the children to engage in avoidable confrontations. In the beginning there were a few teachers that did show MUCH concern for the children's well-being; however now, they care less. Most of the teachers there have no ambition and many lack being certified or qualified. They do have a family like environment, which would be good if it benefited the kids, but they (the teachers) go to school to basically relax, not teach. Something simply stated to elementary school children like go ahead and fight if you want" is unacceptable. The teachers are lazy and the principal stands by and allow the teachers to run the school instead of her. If you want a sister-hood of teachers, un-uniformed school for your kids then give it a shot. However, I know that all parents expect and exceptional education provided for their children; with that being said, look to another option for schooling. JKH no!!

I am a parent with two children enrolled in the school. This school has made a remarkable difference in the quality of education my children are now receiving as opposed to what they were receiving previously in an EBR parish school. The teachers do a wonderful job of making the children feel confident in their talents and abilities. I strongly disagree with the comment posted (September 2006). I happen to be familiar with the teacher being referred to in the comment. When my child was enrolled in this teacher's class, she went above and beyond to help my child achieve. When my son arrived in her class, he was reading on a low 1st grade level, he left reading above a 3rd grade level. She tutored my child after school and on Saturdays. I believe the parent that posted those 'character attacking' comments was disgruntled or downright mean-spirited and ignorant!

During my child's attendance at JK Haynes I was impressed with the schools academic achievement. Most all teachers are strong, highly qualified individuals with the exception of one teacher who is very rude, confrontational, and childlike and is known for stripping a child's confidence and enthusiasm and seems to get support from the now acting principal. During Mr. Haynes leadership, the school was headed in the right direction. My child was extremely happy and confident. I encouraged others to enroll their kids.There has not been an individual put in place that seems to have leadership skills needed to successfully run this school since the loss of Mr. Haynes. Parents have often asked for a Parent and Teacher group to be formed-not! Hats OFF to the Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers, You are the glue that holds that school together.

I would like to just let it be known that there are indeed some that help make up the staff of J.K Haynes Charter School very good people.On the other hand,some are not. Extracurricular activities are not offerd,and favortism is an issue as well.There is not unity at this school.

J. K. Haynes Elementary Charter School is simply an outstanding school that has achieved outstanding results. This is a school where children are excited about learning and teachers are excited about teaching. This is a school where more than 80% of the students are at risk inner city youth and they consistently score at the top of standardized tests. This school has consistently been rated as one of the top three elementary schools in East Baton Rouge Parish.

This school was a good school when it first opened up. The first director really cared for the students and made an effort to make this a good environment for students, staff and parents. The new director/founder is rude and lacks leadership abilities. We tried to reach him on several visits to the school but he's hardly there. I feel that the teachers love what they do and they do a good job of teaching but the turn over rate is high because of the administration problems.
