Teachers want parents involved in the learning process, but when you contact the teachers at Betty Jane, you rarely get a response. I have sent in notes and emailed my sons teacher several times and get very little feedback. The teachers at this school are not worth the salary they are paid. I guarantee I will never vote for another APS levy.

After a long, tedious month of dealing with Betty Jane and Mrs. Summers, I decided to see if anyone else was having issues with this school. This school is beyond chaotic. It is pathetic and people really need to look at the other schools in the Akron area before ever sending their child to Betty Jane. I would not recommend this place to anyone!! My child will not be going back next year. I wish I could give this school a negative score because I would, terrible!!

This school is nothing more than complete chaos. The principle is unprofessional, abrasive, inept, and needs to be removed from the elementary school setting. Her office staff, excluding the secretary, are absolutely useless. I am very disappointed in how Mrs. Summers runs her school and I doubt my son will be returning.

The teachers are really good at betty jane. The office is somewhat unorganized which has presented problems and the principle needs to come out of her office more often, but otherwise no serious problems. If your looking for small classrooms and great teachers, betty jane is a great school.

Betty Jane is a community involved school. My daughter has attended there since Kindergarten. She is now in the 3rd grade. The students there are very respectful! My daughter loves her teachers and several others she has not even had yet. The teachers really show that they care not only about their students but others and also about the families. They are not only there for the kids when they are out of their class but are there all the time when they need to talk.
