Our school is not just a school,it's a family. Last year my son started kindergarten and neither of us knew a single person; it didn't take long that the JFG community embraced my son and our family and made us feel as though we had been in the school system for years. The administration, particularly Mrs. Eckel our principal, the teachers, the parents and the kids are....simply stated, first class, all around good people. We are thrilled to be a part of the JFG family and I'm excited that I have a younger child that will be starting JFG in a few years and will prolonging our stay as part of that family for a few years longer.

I have to brag about George School because my son has many good memories. The school communicates with the parents and the parent are involved. There is a unity and when a family in the school is in trouble the school reaches out and the community helps. The Staff genuinely care about the education and safety of Americas youth. It is a safe clean environment. I feel privileged to be in this district, and encouraged to know each day when my son goes to school he is getting the type of education every child deserves.

I have two children in this school and I can honestly say they are extremely happy. The teachers are professional, respectful and easy to approach. The only problem with the school is that it is old. The PSO does a great job raising money to help the school out. It is a great community that I am proud to be part of.

My son has attended the Jessie F. George School for three years, and we have yet to receive a curriculum for any grades he has entered. Although we have asked repeatedly for a curriculum, one has never been given. When we have pushed the issue with administration, we have basically been ignored. Communication about critical issues is basically, non-existent. And, there is no PTA - no Parent/Teacher Association - only an HSO (Home School Organization) that has no teacher involvement. The school is old, and there has been no major renovation since the '50's. I consider the Kindergarten play equipment outdated and dangerous.

We have two children in this school and are happy we moved to this town for the school system. This is a school in which the principal knows 'every' child's name; every child knows every teacher as the do literature groups and math games, and the children all know and like each other - no matter was grade. The have reading buddies so that the older children gain self-esteem and the younger have someone to look up to. Their is much family involvement and parents are encouraged to take part in school decisions. One of my children required special services and the school stopped at nothing to be sure she received everything to help her grow along with her classmates. Can I say anymore? Oh, I forgot to mention that the principal actually walked with the children weekly after lunch in an effort to promote exercise and healthy life-long habits.

With two children at Jessie F. George I can say the teachers are young, fresh and have new ideas to engage children in learning. The parents are friendly and it's in a great community.
