Amount of homework: Just right
May 27, 2015
right now the homework amount is good. Except for when the teacher can't get the kids to do the class work in class and she sends it home.

from what I've seen and continue to see theschool is only determined to get better grades in the big test. Which by the way should be taken out of the schools it is ridiculous.

Fairness hasn't been seen by me yet. My son is segregated because of hearsay from teacher to teacher.and that's just oneexample. And the principal no idea how to Punish bad teachers and reward the ones he does the opposite.

For the most part not as bad, but there are some of the worst teachers I've ever seen there. And what's worse the principal backs the teachers too much, when some one is pathetic at there job you don't back them, let alone congadulat them on a good job. Can't wait until my child is out of there..it would take alot for me to change my review.

The teachers are fabulous! Great parent-teacher communication. Curriculum is challenging. Parent involvement is welcomed, and there are many organized activities for the whole family.

The teachers at Jacksonwald are outstanding. I have been in the school district for 4 years now. I think the principal could be more respectful of parents in general and especially those that volunteer.

Jacksonwald is a school that asks for parent participation but shuts parents out of every part of the learning process as possible. I do not know one parent who is happy with the administration at this school.

This school has alot of opportunity for children, but know it also is a commitment from the parent(s) to help push! The teachers are A+!
