This school is absolutely amazing. I have been a student in JBES since pre-school. Now that I am in the 8th grade I don't want to leave. The teachers are incredible in middleschool (they've been great in every grade). They are really good with helping you understand the concepts of stuff, such as the difficult subjects that are taught in algebra and science. If you dont get it, they'll help you until you understand it completely. The middle school teachers may not teach the traditional way all of the time, but i guarantee your child will understand math,science,french,literature,writing, and social studies just as well, if not better. The learning enviroment is incredible, there really is no way to describe it. This is not your ordinary school, it is soooooo much better!

We have had a great experience at JBES with both of our children.I feel the teacher quality is high.I would like to see the school become more 'user friendly'. It is hard to keep track or know of extracurricar activities. Even as an involved parent I never know what is available for my child in terms of clubs or the arts.

This is a great school, and very educational. Bartlett teachers are very nice and try to keep the learning side fun! Like the fifth graders who simulate the Oregon Trail rather than reading from a textbook. This school is very fundicational!

I feel that my child is getting the best education that she can get through JBES. The middle school is absoloutely fantastic. The writing and the math teachers, Ms. Chula and Ms. Penza, are amazing with the kids. Great job and go Bears!

I am very happy with the 7th grade teachers and the interaction they have with their students. They have a genuine interest in the learning needs of all children. There's one teacher that I wish could follow this class through high school as sheis the best 'Math' teacher. She can be tough, but if your honest and try your best in learning, she will support you all the way. She gives 100% of herself when it comes to helping others.

I find that the kids are exceeding in many areas of academics. The children at the school are respectful and have the opportunity to participate in many activities from sports to art. The teachers are awesome! Parent involvement is excellent.
