My daughter attended kindergarten at Jones Elementary. It is a very small school, with small class sizes. The curriculum was challenging but age appropriate. I loved the programs they put on around Christmas and the graduation ceremony they had for the Kindergartener's. The teachers seem to work together well, and my daughter really enjoyed her time. The school has free breakfast every morning, and the same monitors in the cafe each day. (Which is helpful for the young students) My daughter bonded with a lot of the teachers and had a good transition into the start of her education. The lines of communication were always open between me and the school. If I had to critique one hint it would be the extracurricular activities. I really wish the school had a stronger art and music program.

My son is a second grade student in Jones Elementary and I am very happy with the circulium that is provided. He has challenging homework, they test his reading comprehension almost daily, they do interesting science homework. The only thing missing from this school is a lack of an art program, and I think they don't have this because the school is so small.
