This is really is an OK school. Teacher could be more friendly and helpful for kids who need more advance school work.

I am a parent of a 6year old whom just completed the Kindergarden program. I am VERY upset with the school due to the fact that my son is not ready to go to the 1st grade and have requested him to be held back. The school has not worked with me on this matter. I have had to go to a child psy. to get the matter taken care. What happened to doing what is best for the child? Why are we waiting till he gets in the 2nd grade and then hold kids back due to law requirements? I have also changed school district since Jenks does not have my child's best interest in mind.

I have 2 children in JEE and so far we love the school. Most teachers are wonderful. The site principal is involved and truly cares for this children. We also love the school diversity. The test scores are unsatisfactory for reasons the staff will be glad to discuss, but the school is taking every measure to address and solve this problem.

I loved this school because my teachers truly believed in each and every one of their students. Every faculty member made the utmost commitment not only to the education of their children, but also to enriching each life by instilling the desire to be lifelong students of the world in which we all continue to learn and coexist. Never have I experienced in all my successive education such a priority in action towards educating kids to create, explore, inquire, and embrace character and active citizenship--and all this takes place at the elementary school level, but not without fundamentally immeasurable value beyond these most formative of years!

I went to Jenks K-12th grade and graduated in May of 2000. I have the most wonderful memories of my education and growing up within the school system. I went on to the University of Oklahoma and am now a teacher myself. I would send my children to Jenks in a heartbeat because it fosters the needs of all types of children and encourages positive development in all areas.

My 2 daughters started at Jenks East and went through the High School. Both the University of Notre Dame and University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center are glad they did well.

I graduated from Jenks Public Schools in the spring of 2003. I was very pleased with the teachers, and the quality of the education I reveived. The teachers were friendly and knowlegeable in the fields they taught. I look forward to sending my children to Jenks in the future.
