Jenkins Elementary, this is the first wk. of school, so there will be many traffic problems. Some due to new parents not knowing the procedure and old parents not following procedure, The staff/Admin. has always been good w/my granddaughters and taking care of any problems. Mrs. Starr is cool and good w/the kids, I can talk to her about anything and Mr. Jordan, well he is a star. Thank you, Jan Cryer-Alf, grandmother

If you are moving in the area I recommend you to rethink about it! At least if your student is going to have to go to Jenkins elementry. This school sucks!! From rude staff to unorganized from picking up your kids after school. This school does not have it together! Northgate crossing was such a more organized & great staff:))

My son attended Jenkins from pre-k till fourth grade. The principal Mrs. Starr has a bad attitude and loves to hear herself talk. I had my son transferred because the school has failing test scores. In kindergarten there was no ceremony for the children, my son has never been in a play or production and the school seems to turn a cold shoulder to bullying. The teachers my son had were very good but the principal, nurse and rest of the staff are horrible. I had to fight to get my son transferred to Anderson where he couldn't be happier. Run as far and as fast from Jenkins as you can!

I don't know what the lady is talking about the principal/staff is rude. She must be rude! I go to Jenkins anytime and feel welcomed. If I have a problem they are receptive to it and handle the situation. I know as a parent you have to be diligent in finding out what's going on at school & put effort to stay on top of school activities. Use the internet.

This school is awesome as far as teachers go,i would have to say they are the best thing that happened to this school. The principal is rude!!!! The staff is rude!!!!!! They wont let you participate in any in school activities or even let you know what is going on in the school! you are allowed in the school two times a year and those times are meet the teacher and open house and you are allowed to eat lunch with your child that is it!!! The principal does not care for anyone or there feelings every time i enter this school i am treated like a piece of trash and never told thank you or have a good day! I am a very sweet mother of three that takes everyone's feeling in to consideration every time i leave this school i am crying cause the way i was treated by the staff and makes me wonder if they treat our children with the same respect they give the parents. Makes me wonder if i should move to another location with schools that treat you better!! I would rather spend all my money and up root my family for a school who makes a mother who wants to be involved with her child's education feel welcomed and important.

My daugher loves Jenkins Elem. They do what they can with the resources they have. I think they're doing a great job.

This school as all schools are only as good as the staff and parents that support it. These kids come from a very low socio-economic back ground. As such parents involvement in their childrens education is low to non-existent. The teachers are tasked to work with underdeveloped children, disinterested parents, and little resources. Teachers spend most of their time correcting behavior as opposed to properly conducting a classroom to further education.

Why do they have to watch so much TV at school? I don't understand this. Everyday my kids tells me about a movie/ cartoon she saw at school. What are the teachers doing? They are always encouraging unhealthy diets by providing donuts and cookies and such as rewards.

Great school. Teachers and administrators care about the success of children. If every school offered what Jenkins does, education would be in a better state. Thanks!

this school has a good standing with the community around it. It has all of the qualities of a neighborhood school.

I feel the school is emphasizing too much on parents and home life, not academics. I am also very dissapointed with the fact the school district has had to let teachers go but they have enough money to purchase a new laptop computer for each tacher in the district, along with digital projectors for each classroom and LCD monitors throughout the schools. Is this where my tax dollars are going instead of educating my children?!

I feel really good about my son's Kindergarten teacher and her ability to help him accelerate his learning abilities. All of the staff are friendly and have our children's best interests and education in mind.
