I love this school, it has been such a privilege to have my children attend this wonderful school. When my oldest daughter left I actually cried due to the fact that I was not prepared for middle school to be so rough and I was so use to parent/teacher involvement with my child's education. This is a GREAT school and anybody that says different doesn't know what they are talking about.

The faculty at Charjean is a cut above the rest, but the administration leaves something to be desired.

My son has been enrolled in Charjean since kindergarten,he is now going to the fourth grade and I have always been involved in his school activities. I have been accepted every time I'm there from the custodial help and up. My son is a honor student. The teachers take their time to work with students that are struggling, especially if they know the parents are concerned and want their child to improve. The principal has a very high concern for the students in their learning as well as their safety. The school has different ways of teaching your child and they are also willing to help the parents help their child(ren).
