Most teachers are great. I want teachers that excite students. My niece had Ms Williams and loved second grade. I should ave made my child get her too!

JIES is such a neat school! The principal is a nice and knowledgeable person. During the times I have spoken with her at school events, she seems like she's an advocate for the children. The teachers are too. Our kids are thriving in this environment! They always come home excited about the fun STEAM stuff they do in class! They are becoming well-rounded learners. We are excited about the new school year! I am proud to call JIES our home!

What a great school. They truly love students and teach them social skills.It goes above and beyond.

This is a great STEAM school that does have resources for students who qualify that are low or high. This is the most diverse school in the district and that shows in the diversity in gifted students. There are so many positive things happening at JIES. Go check it out before making a decision.

This school is full of teachers who are there on their own time for hours. This school has the hardest working staff in the district.

JIES was great during the 1st year my child attended. Her teacher was phenomenal!! Informative, connected, available & showed genuine interest in my childs education & well being. The past 2 years/teachers have gone from bad to worse. The teachers are cracking jokes & literally laughing aloud during one IEP plan meeting. The principal was there yet when her supervisor asked if my child had an IEP & she replied, "No" Her teacher offers no positive feedback. The data clerk is not responsible or professional. The school has programs for overachievers yet JIES has no programs for students with learning disabilities.

This is a great school. The teachers were wonderful and caring. The outdoor classroom is a plus.

This school has a bunch of awesome teachers and staff that develop honesty, integrity and fairness in its students! They are: Principal Fickling, Ms Boyd, Mrs. Mayshack, Mrs Williams, Ms Harley, Mrs. Boyd, and Mr. Harrington. They all went above and beyond with my family!

My son loved his first grade teacher, Mrs Butler-McLendon. She went above and beyond to get him to read! The school is filled with awesome teachers that love teaching.
