My twin girls attend JW and are currently in 3rd grade. I cannot begin to express how much I appreciate every single administrative person as well as teachers since the beginning. We ran into some extremely difficult things not related to school that did affect school in a very real way through the last few years. If it hadn't been for these people whom I consider family, I honestly don't know what we would have done. From the top I would like to thank: Mrs Pratti, Mrs Watson, Mrs Jeckavitch, Mrs Vanvleet, Mrs Lairson, Mrs Morris, Mrs Morris, Mrs Webb, Mrs Ells, and Mr Williams as well as Ms Milk. You are all so special to us and we will always remember the interest you have taken in our children!

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
If they know about bullying or any behavioral issue, its handled very quickly.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Yes and to add to this, they do it in a way that lifts the child's spirit and doesn't make them uncomfortable.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Top to bottom. Solid as a rock! Not one single person is considered to be exempt from the team spirit and they ALL help with whatever is needed all the time. They serve as excellent roll models at an extremely important and impressionable time in the kids lives!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Without a doubt. The teachers begin by living it out in the children's presence. To me, it cant be learned unless it is displayed


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
We could honestly not ask for any better. My kids respect and enjoy being in the classes!

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
I feel they assign age appropriate amounts and explain what is expected very well!

I just moved to Hilliard and my child is attending JW Reason Elementary. The staff is polite and helpful. The principal is caring, respectful. What I find very discriminating are the comments on this page on regards of non-english speaking students and the multicultural population being responsible for the delayed learning of the caucasian students. I am a proud puertorrican parent who's child is attending JW Reason and he is currently at the highest reading level for his grade! yes, a latino child! Great learning has no color, gender or race. JW Reason has teachers that care for their students and do the best possible to meet academic expectations.

J W Reason has pros and cons. Pro: The principal seems very interested in advancing the school and getting to know the students, despite not knowing some of the special programs in the district. Con: The school is not likely to advance in overall test scores because of the LARGE population of non-English speaking students who, through no fault of their own, take longer to catch up with the rest of the class and therefore the pace of learning for other students is delayed. Pro: The staff we've had were very good teachers!! Con: The school building has limitations for technology because of its age. Pro: The parents who ARE active in the school, put their heart into it. Con: Becuase of the demographic, many parents are working and don't have the time to dedicate to school involvement. Overall: A good school but for parents who are actively striving to excel their child, perhaps a different school within the district would be a better fit.



- a
JW has a very dedicated, caring, and positive staff and principal. What they accomplish in a 50+ year old building with a very diverse student population is commendable. I wouldn't send my 2 children to any other school. The overall learning environment is second to none.
