Students are well behaved and respectful. The teachers work together. My children love the atmosphere.

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.

I am so glad that my child is out of this school, i liked it when she was in K-3,I feel the teachers were more hands on with the students,she liked and respected them,but as she moved to 4-5,teachers were less likely to care about the quality of education & more about discipline,they were more prone & fast to write up a child as opposed to finding the root of the issue & resolving it, their patience was a@ 0 & she had more substitute teachers than should be allowed in a school year. These subs would come in and expect to kick back and do nothing and i dont feel she learned anything in her 4-5 grade years,she struggled in math and i asked for a tutor or someone to help her understand it better and was denied saying "oh she is fine in math" really? well her grades in math reflect otherwise. she would come home and cry because she didnt understand what she was doing. A "sub" actually ruined a group project that my daughter and her group put together and blamed it on the students and when my daughter stood and told the truth,was written up and denied access to end of the year school fun day after i had already paid my money and was refused a refund.I hate this school.

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 everything thing the school has to offer but the principal and a few of the teachers need improvement.

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.
