Excellent teachers, supportive administration and a great pta that welcomes parents and encourages volunteers. Of course there's always a few sour grapes but the great people out way the naysayers. There is a strong focus on academics, updated technology , and there have been many capital improvements. Recently went yo full day kindergarten which is a huge plus. Also has part time pre k.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

John Lewis Childs school was a great environment for any child to learn in. I still keep in touch with a couple of teachers, they provided a wonderful learning environment. It has a small town feel, parents of school children need to work with the administration to come to a mutual agreement about the curriculum and extra curricular activities that are provided.

Where have all the positive posts gone? Someone not feeling secure. Very strange....I know Im not the only one to notice

This school is a disappointed for our family on multiple levels. The school needs improvement from academics to the administration. Anyone considering this school should review the 2013 assessment test results before making a decision.

Overall, this is a school and district that care about students and the involvement of parents. The school has a tradition of excellent education and I believe the Board and Administration (Principal) are committed to achievement. That said, there is a total lack of focus on Science and it is extremely disturbing. All trends in the global and US economy point to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) being essential for future careers. Although my review states 4/5 stars for Teacher Quality and Principal Leadership, the School and District get ONE STAR for not aggressively addressing the Science issue. Many parents are very involved and are wonderful people who are invested in their child/children and they pitch in, give their time, energy and money and do a great job. The PTA is active and meets social needs and class projects but there is a greater need for an academic focus. Again, parents and the PTA could cause the focus change to more STEM courses and activities. Because of the lack of Science (STEM) and the super focus on the Common Core, the school is Average 3/5 stars.

Very very pleased with what my daughter learned in First Grade. It seems all of the first grade teachers are excellnt and I've heard similar things about the second grade teachers. I am concerned about 4th and 5th grade as per the comments below.

JLCS is the best! But the only problem is if you go before 8:10am you have to wait in the auditorium till the bell rings.Well it's better than when they made us wait outside when it was FREEZING!!! MY mom works and she use to drive me but now my sister takes me on the bus and I'm lucky she just finished college! But in 4th grade, my teacher is super nice! So if the "arrangement" didn't happen, I would love JLCS even more!
