Jeb is a great school and is getting my daughter ready for high school. The teacher and principal care if the kids learn and push them. They get all the kids involved in activities. This is a good school and I would tell everyone to send their child here.

This is a great school that prepared my child for high school. He is more advanced than the kids in his classes. The teachers and administration are great. The community is very involved in the school. The school is making improvements and challenging classes.

This school was a great school two years ago. Since they switched principals it has gone downhill. Their curriculum is extremely lacking and the principal seems as if she does not care or want to better the school. I do not recommend enrolling your children here. This is the last year my children will go here, we have elected to move because of it. The teachers lack in drive and motivation and are too busy texting and using facebook during class. It is hard for parents to become involved because they do not offer it. I have tried to volunteer but never is called upon to do so. It is very sad.

This school lacks parent involvement unless the parent is a teacher. Though the teachers are very nice that does not make up for the low academic standards and shoddy curriculum.

This is a great school! There is so much one on one with teacher and students because of the small classes. Everyone knows everyone else and it makes it really personal. The parent/teacher communication is great to. We always know if there is an area we need to work on with the kids. They are all really in tune with each other.
