Horrible....no one watches these kids...I was there and they literally couldn't find someone's child who a parent came to pick up during field day...seems like the people who work there don't want to be there...are not warm ...just going through the motions....lots of homework but they don't teach the kids how to do the work they send home...i thought homework was supposed to review and reaffirm what the teacher taught them in class, but we were teaching how to count money at our dinner table during homework time..ugh!

The leadership at this school is outstanding! The scores are excellent and children are learning. I am planning to send my grandson to this school. He has excellent behavior at home and knows how to act at school. I will be an active grandparent in the school to help where there is a need. When parents, teachers, and leadership work together it creates a positive environment. I see that when I walk into Jones Elementary. I believe this school is a great choice for my grandson. I hope they hire more seasoned teachers by the time he begins school.

Pre-K was bullying, very rude teachers - the following year, teacher was NEVER prepared, bullying @ the school,sometimes never received homework, AS A PARENT ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW ANY INFO....JONES ELEMENTARY- NO DIFFERENT- ALWAYS BULLING @ THE SCHOOL, Teachers always absent, or quit.. I went on a Field Trip, following along in my car and my daughter on the bus with Teachers , My daugher was pushed, and being hit by another child on the bus, but no one saw anything and the teacher basically ignored my child told her to sit back down..While eating Luch @ the field trip which i attended i witness the same child pushed my daughter down stairs, Thank God she was not hurt, but her back bruised- I told the teacher & she just more or less blew it off- I had to warn the teacher that, that child BETTER NOT PUT his hands on my child ANYMORE. needless to say this was a very important issue, the Principal nor Assit.Principal did not RETURN MY CALL. MY DAUGHTER IS IN 2ND GRADE HATES THIS SCHOOL...SOMEONE NEEDS TO RE-EVALUATE THE Principal/ WHOLE STAFF and VERIFY ADDRESSES...

If you care about your child's education don't send them to Jone Elementary. Place them in private school or buy a house in another area. My son graduated this summer. I worked with him at home and pretty much maintained As and Bs, but I felt like he was not being challenged in class. When I would go to his school for certain functions it was always poorly planned; unorganized chaos.A couple of the teachers seem to be good, but others were fresh out of a certification program doing their job, but not necessarily teaching our kids.

I have been very disappointed in this school. It is a new school with lots of resources, but the leadership is not there.
