Jennings Elementary School 4

This school has EXCELLENT teachers along with a QUALITY curriculum. Yes there are issues but overall this school is great. The academics are high, the Gifted program is wonderful, and class size is not overwhelming. A PTO is in the works which will only make the school better. The PTO really wants to improve communication, increase achievement, make the Positive Reward System better, and improve the playground. Achievement Test scores are good and can improve but using test scores to determine a good school is not the only way to determine if good teaching or learning is happening. Walk around the school, get a feel for what is happening in the classrooms, talk to the administration, that will give you a true picture of the quality education this school is providing. The cafeteria is too small for 600 students but this is a former high school so there is not much the administration can do about that. There is not enough recess, in my opinion, but I'm sure there is a reason, I just think that kids need to let off steam more than 10/15 minutes per day.

Too much is loaded on them in the day for the teachers and students to allow a fair chance of learning and not enough recess time for them to release their energy and breathing time for the teachers. Whom ever is in controll of these problems is asking for a down fall on both ends.
