My daughter is in third grade and has attended Jamison since kindergarten. We have been extremly pleased with every teacher she has had as well as the entire staff. Our daughter enjoys going to school everyday and has made great friends. We are very happy with Jamison, and would highly recommend it!

Jamison Elemantary is an excellent school. My kids are happy to go to school and to learn due to the caring and skill of the teachers at Jamison. The environment is comfortable and parent friendly and issues are quickly dealy with. My daughter has an IEP and the special needs teachers are outstanding. Don't think about it, go to Jamison, you won't regret it. John Giolli

I have 3 children in Jamsion - 1st, 2nd, 4th. Each are fortunate to have fantatstic teachers who are fantastic. All of my kids are different and Jamsion does a great job of matching children with a teacher that meets those needs. The new principle is very engaged and motivates students, staff, and parents to give :"Nothing less than their best." It is a wonderful learning community.

This is a very good school because it has a lot of kids who are kind and don't believe in bullying. If you go to a school like Groveland or Bridge Valley, you will see more bullying. Anyway, the school yard has a tiny playground, a kickball field, and a blacktop for games and jump roping and/or hula hooping. The parking lot is a good size, the lighting is good, and the library has lots of books. The best school in Central Bucks is Jamison! I love jamison!!!!!!

Focused teachers raising the bar for each child. Professional and caring. Only thing lacking is a sense of community.

My children are going into 3rd grade at Jamison and have had a fantastic experience there from K-2. The teachers are outstanding, and the administration knows our kids and takes a personal interest in their success. Overall, you can't beat Central Bucks schools.

My son is in the first grade. He has a learning disability and Jamison Elementary is a blessing to him and our family. The principal, IEP team and his teacher, Mrs. Rucker are wonderful people and my son loves going to school and is enthusiastic about his day! I recommend this school to anyone who has the option of moving to this area for the benefit of their child. It was a good year and I applaud every person at Jamison who made it great for my son!

We just moved to the area recently and I am amazed at the quality of education at this school. I recently asked my children how they liked their 'new' school vs. their 'old' school and they could not be any more positive about this school. Very impressed.

As far as the academic programs this school is excellent. The school seems to have a problem with bullying. Many children have been bullied physically and mentally in this school and no matter what kind of programs they try nothing seems to work. I think one of the reasons is the Principal of this school doesn't know what to do with children that bully and they seem to always get away with it. Maybe when she holds these children accountable for their actions the bullying will stop. Many Parents I have talked to agree with me and know many many children have been bullied in this school. Its a real shame because its a nice school and maybe when Parents talk to their children about treating other children equally and treat others as they want to be treated it will stop.
