A family member who's cold goes there told me that on the very first day of school a little girl was sent home walking when she didn't even know the way home. She got lost & ended up at one of the gas stations at the front of the neighborhood. Her mother was running late that day&contacted the school to let them know & that's when she found out that NOONE at the school knew where the little girl was. The little girl was found wad found scared & crying, but thankfully unharmed. I just don't understand how something like this could've in the first place. How do they send small children walking home all in their own? It's just ridiculous.
It appears there is not much parent support at this school. The school offers many academic nights for learning and a handful of parents attend. If you as a parent can not support your childs school to get better, why complain. This school is not as aweful as the reviews say. There are many positive things happening at Jones Elementary.
This school is an embarrassment to all faculty and students. Do not send your children here unless you want them to come out as criminals. The teachers care nothing for their jobs and most do not care when a child, like my son, is bulled on a day to day basis. They learn nothing either. if relocating means going to school here then it is better to stay where you are.
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!
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.
