J.S. Waters is an awesome place for students in grades K-8. We are a small community based school. We have great support from local organizations. It is a place where children are nurtured and cared for greatly. I am blessed to be the principal at such a great school.

JS Waters has Excellent teachers along with a strong principal who is not only a leader but an advocate for the children! JS Waters has challenging academic programs and offers one on one instruction and strives for excellence!! My oldest daughter completed 9 yrs at JSW, and is currently a SR in High School. I cannot fathom my children going anywhere else. I have two other children enrolled at JSW and are doing well.

J.S. Waters has really impressed me as an excellent home-town school...and it takes a lot to impress me! The staff all seem to be very professional and personable.

This school is terrific because of the people that work here. I have always enjoyed the personalities,and the love displayed by the faculty and staff members alike. Many of our teachers are so kind and caring, that they go out of their way to help students in any way that they can. I can't count the many times that I have witnessed a teacher or an assistant going to a childs house to help with one issue or another.... It just comes as second nature to this group! I am proud to be a part of this school and can truly say that J.S. Waters Elementary school is one of the best schools around!

We moved up here from Raleigh last year, and I was a little worried moving from the 'city' to the 'country' that the school wouldnt match academically, but that is not the case at all. and JS Waters has made my son feel right at home...it is a small school with a wonderful family feel and my son has really excelled. Thanks!
