I love this school. My son sometimes needs a little extra attention due to learning difficulties, and they give him the extra help he needs while keeping him in the classroom setting and helping shape good work habits. The staff really cares about the success of each student. The students also seem to genuinely care for each other. And the Kids Club staff is exceptional! I won't be moving out of this school area!

We love Joslyn! The teachers, principal and staff are fantastic, loving and caring. They truly want every child to succeed. The PTO offers plenty of opportunities to volunteer and they welcome suggestions. The Kids Club staff are fun and energetic. An all-around great neighborhood school.

I have 2 kids at this school. I think it is a great school with wonderful facilities and caring staff, with teachers that are concerned about your child. They have a lot of extracurricular and before and after hours child care too.
