EE Jeter is an EXCELLENT school! My kids love it here and the principle and teachers are all great educators and people. I have 3 children here and I would not have them at any other school. Everyone here cares about all students and their growth! My oldest attended a few other schools do to us having to move a lot for work and she got bullied at all other schools and hated to go, since we've been at Jeter (3 years now) she has many many friends, never bullied and all of my children love to go to school!

The only positive thing about this school is the principal, music teacher & art teacher. From the bullying on the bus to the bullying by the first grade teacher we have cut our losses and are moving on. I can only imagine what was said about me to other parents and teachers by my son's first grade teacher. She would talk to anyone that would listen. These teachers are def unprofessional and have not been shown how to talk to parents let alone kids!!! Very sad that this is prob one of the better schools out there!

I have worked personally with the principal a few years ago and I agree with the last commit. I think she is great. She works very hard and loves the children. Some of the people in the community seem to think that color and religion is all that matters. I think support is the key word. If you have problems with this school open your heart and help. I feel like you are prejudging things without personally being involved. I mean really involved. I think about the talk in the teachers lounge. It starts their. If there is negative talk about teachers and staff, it gets around in the community. I have sat their and heard stuff about teachers and staff, it does spread in the community and who"s fraught is that, it could be yours. Give Mrs. Bond and all the Teachers that deserve it, credit. They work very hard to make sure your child becomes a great adult one day.

I will have to agree that some of the teachers are great and do not fit into the group of the not so great ones i am talking about. However, after leaving that school and sending them to another school(private), I saw how far behind they actually were. The teachers are concerned mostly with TCAP scores. The principal is very unprofessional and could have cared less about my children. She did not even know their names or that they were related. She is not involved with the kids and the activities that go on at the school. i know all this because i was a very involved parent. So many things are swept under the carpet at this little school nestled in the woods. Parents would be floored to hear how some of the teachers really talk about their children to other teachers and parents. I Thank God we no longer are part of the gossiping, mis-treating of students that goes on at this school.

Jeter is a wonderful school and the teachers are outstanding. The school administration, teachers, parents and students all work together to ensure the best in accidemics and achievements. The PTA does an great job, and there is a lot of communication from the teachers.

E.E. Jeter is an fairly good school, however, there is not enough racial diversity in the teacher popoulation. Also, the principal lacks professionalism and fairness to all parents particulary African-American parents and she is an African-American herself.

I had heard of the other elementary schools in Millington, tried one of them, and have found E.E. Jeter to be the best by far. It is small and the teachers can get to a degree- personal and teach them individually their specific needs. The best elementary school in the county.

I am a parent of two children at Jeter. My son is in the 5th grade and he has loved this school since his first day. My daughter is in 1st grade and she also likes school. Their teachers have always gone out of their way to make sure our children grasp the concepts that they are teaching. This is a perfect school example of what a public elementary school should be.

Jeter is a great little school. The teachers are outstanding. They have almost always exceeded my expectations. I am proud to say there is a large ammount of parental involvement at this school. The PTA does an awesome job, and there is a lot of communication from the teachers.

E.E. Jeter is a rare jewel in the school system. It is unmatched in offering children the kind of teachers that we (grandparents) remembered from our days. Everyone is on the same page, the same team and our teachers prove each year by TCAP scores of their students just what it means to be able to really teach young people and what it means for parents/grandparents to be involved. Attend any Jeter event...you won't find a parking place easily. We are so proud of our grandson and thank God that there is a school like Jeter that is available for him. Mrs. Higgs
