This is an incredible school system! I went to school here, worked here as a substitute and as a para-pro, as well as doing some of my student teaching here, so I have seen it from many different angles. I know how hard these teachers work to provide the best curriculum for each child, not just the class as a whole. The teachers routinely work together to make sure their lesson plans do not conflict with each others (as possible), and consult with one another on how to manage students having difficulties (i.e. 'what worked in your class?'). This is an A+ school that has really shown what a group of talented professionals can do when they have their hearts and heads together. Kudos, teachers and staff for making EJPS a happy place to learn and teach!

The teachers do not care. Everything is the students responsibility. Teachers do not call home about anything, if your child is misbehaving, not doing homework, not participating, not taking their medication...you will not find out until they are failing a class. There is no help for students who are struggling except for private tutoring, and the teachers are completely unwillinging to work with the tutor, to share information or books. Teachers also do not answer parent notes, and the principal has complete faith in the teachers and everything that they do. Concerns and complaints are not addressed in any way. This is a terrible school.
