I would give this school NO stars if that was an option. Very low standards, over crowding, and bulleying are paramount here. So unimpressed.

I'm parent and if i had a choice my children wouldn't go to Jack elementary. Some teachers at Jack elementary doesn't feel there teachers duties. They let you know your kids are failing in the middle of the school year. Then they want to fail your child and act like its your fault. And Jack elementary logo is: No child left behind:

Jack is a beautiful, state-of-the-art building, but it's not the building that makes a good school; it's the talented, loving professionals and parents who work together to create an incredible learning environment for our children.
