Jewett is one of the best schools in Central Point. The teachers, principal, staff, and parents all work together to make sure the students succeed. They are out of the box thinkers when it comes to helping the kids understand their work. The teachers are very patient and are first and for most about the students. My kids love to go to school each day and they come home with great things they have learned each day in class. The principal is also very involved with the kids- he is a principal who knows every students name and makes sure that issues are taken care of along with being outside with the kids. The staff is very helpful and understanding. The school as a whole is working to be a well oiled machine and everyone is on board to make sure the students succeed.

This school is all about Federal Aid. My child went to the school nurse for a playground injury and ended up being enrolled in LaClinica. They are always pushing me to try and enroll in Government Based Programs and when I decline they give me dirty looks. Then they charge a $20 enrollment fee (per child, unfortunately, it's time for my youngest to start K). To top it off my child barely gets any homework and isn't encouraged to strive for excellence in learning (just state testing). I spent the summer having my child do workbooks to supplement what he HASN'T learned in school. It is VERY sad... hopefully we can move... hopefully all Southern Oregon Schools are not this bad... it's a most disturbing situation.

Jewett is an amazing school with amazing staff. My son is in 5th grade this year and I feel that Jewett staff has made him ready to enter middle school next year. He loves going to school and that's important. I'm very happy with all that he has gained in his years at Jewett. The principal, office staff, teaching staff, and aides all enjoy their jobs and make Jewett a welcoming and loving environment.

My daughter is in 1st grade and I am wow'd by the things she is learning. Graphing, presidents, adding/subtracting, and fractions and reading - she is reading step 2 books. Her teacher is exceptional!

I love the Principal, staff and most of the teachers have been top notch!! I have 2 kids that currently attend Jewett, the absolute only complaint I have is about our school district6, which is currently operating only 4 day weeks this year, due to 'a budget shortfall'. It is shameful, to say the least, that our children are not receiving the education they deserve! I am also outraged to hear that they are going to try to keep it this way, as they told us it was to be 'only the 2009/10 school year, then resume as normal 5 day school weeks come fall 2010.

Jewett is a GREAT school! The Principal cares so much about the children and staff and that makes for a wonderful place to send my kids! The staff are great and love their jobs even with budget cuts and restructuring this school year. I have 2 kids at Jewitt and I'm proud to call it my kids school! The Principal, Scott Dippel, has started a great intermural program where kids are involved in PE type games with coaches and structure based on their age level. I think this is a great way to introduce kids to sports and games and allows children to get excercise in a fun way! Thank you to Mr. Dippel and the Jewitt staff! From a caring parent.

Jewett has a lot of great teachers that care about the kids and their educational needs. They are just extremely limited on funds to make the improvements needed to both the facility and the kids' educational experience. There are limited opportunities (time and dedication) for kids to experience art, science and P.E. More dedication to these subjects would make a difference. I think if kids had a little time to create (art/science) and spend time in physical activity (P.E.) the teachers would not spend so much time dealing with 'calming the class down' and more time teaching the other important subjects such as math, reading and history. It would also be nice to see greater parental participation and more activities to stimulate advanced kids (like more TAG activities). It seems most of the energy goes into behavioral issue kids leaving the more advanced students bored waiting for the next activity.

Jewett Elementary is a school in transition to say the least. It finally has a principal with vision, and the motivation and skills to back it up. With new blood in her veins Jewett is going to come alive like never before. Sit back and watch, Jewett is coming out of that box she's been in.......

I have 2 sons who attended school there, a combined total of 4 years. The school has some good teachers, but it is way over populated. There is very little space, the building is not well maintained. I felt like my older son fell through the cracks. We moved to another state where the schools are so much better. We now have art and PE, which they didn't at Jewette. It has taken my older son most of the year to catch up, and he was given extra help that was nowhere to be found at Jewette. Bully concerns were not adressed, letters were not responded to, there is a very 'hands-are-tied' atmosphere there. My overall experince there was depressing and frustrating.

We have had the same experience with teaching our son to read in 1st grade. He is now in 4th grade. He is doing well, but could be doing better. Teachers do not emphasize the importance of 'handwriting'. Reading is not interesting to my son anymore and the classrooms are very cluttered and the order in the classroom leaves something to be desired. If we had the money to put my son in a private, more structured school, we would.

My daughter just started the first grade here, and she hasn't done as well as I would have hoped. The teachers seem burnt out and distant towards parents, and they give out more school work as homework than they do in the actual classroom. They've supplied the books, but I'm he one that has taught her to read. I never really know what is going on in the school and I get a cold shoulder when I try to find out. Seems like nothing is being accomplished there.
