I have 2 of my four children going to Jenny Lind Community School & the school rating of this school is wrong. The school rating should be a 10. The teachers care about the students & work diligently with students to make sure that they are ready for the next grade level. Aside from the wonderful teachers & staff, the school has an awesome & spectacular principal & vice principal. They make it a priority to get to know their students & in creating a safe & positive learning environment. Jenny Lind Community School make learning & the love of learning a priority. I wish this school went to 8th grade, because of their positive & caring staff & the positive work environment.

Too bad the parents weren't more friendly. It could help establish a sense of community.
