Teachers are great. Administration needs improvement. Principals avoid contact with parents. You would have to trip them in the hall to get their attention. They are indiffferent to parental concerns.

J. Wallace James Elementary School is a school of choice. The school focuses on arts and technology. In theory developing the right and left brain. Their teaching staff are great and the students are happy. My daughter loves it there and is learning a lot every day.

JWJ has the best teachers you will find at any school. School is very clean. Administration could be a little better and more helpful to parents, but all in all I give this school a 4 star rating.

I love what the school offers but the administrators leave a lot to be desired. Also I find that the communication between teachers and parents is lacking. Again, this is an administrative issue. In my opinion, if the principal was focused on parental involvement then the teachers would be as well.

I love what is actually going on in the classroom at JW James. I'm not so crazy about the leadership at the school - and most of the administrators drive me crazy. That said, I am continuing to send my child there because it's definitely better than the other public school options.

My son is in Pre K at J. W. James, so far we love it. The teachers seem to be very involved with the children and their well fare.
