Jouett Elementary is an excellent school and am exceedingly happy that my children attend it. Mr Pelloni (Principal) and his staff have more than been helpful at all times. I get answers when asked and help for the children when requested. I appreciate what the system does for all the kids. There is a problem with bulling at the school, but am assured that it will be taken care of.. All in All a great school system with minor problems

I have seen a decline in respect for students and parents. There has been a drop in communication. The upper grade teachers spend more time gossiping amonst themselves than paying attention to the welfare of the students. Problems are swept under the rug by the Jouett administration. If your child is not perfect in appearance or intellect then they are targeted as conversation material and bullying by other students which administration has been unable to curtail. The administration makes excuses and does not fix problems within the school.

Our first couple of years with a child at Jouett was concerning with morale, organization/structure at the teacher & overall school levels. The current principal, Mr Pelloni has taken great measures over the last couple of years to elevate these things. He and the staff are great with the kids & parents. Our only remaining concern is the organization of homework, tests, and communication with individual teachers. We don't always find out about tests & projects until the last minute, turning it into a mad dash.

The schoo lHas Gotten a 1000 percent better I think since the new principle Mr.Pelloni has taken over. I think the school is in a better place as a whole since he became principle. yes there are still things that could be worked on but I believe that is just part of "public school education" Everyone seems happier from students to teachers. I hope he stays Principle.

I am a 6th year Jouett parent. Over the years I've seen a shift in morale from staff, parents and the children to a negative manner. I'm happy to report that the repair to that morale is taking place this year under the new guidance and vision of our 1st year principal, Mr. Pelloni. Cosmetic changes prior to the school year boosted positive moral for the teachers, children and parents alike. Where communication faltered in the past couple years, we parents are already more informed than we have been and we're still in the first 9 weeks of school! The teaching staff are a majority group of happy teachers doing their best to educate our children under the thumb of state and county policy. While I don't agree w/ the 'teach to test' approach that the state puts too much emphasis on, I feel that great strides are being made this year to reach those students who haven't in the past been given enough one-on-one focus to keep up with their peers. Overall, I see this school returning to it's former prestige as one of the best in the county. I'm hoping that these efforts will bring parent involvement to a new high in both the PTA and overall volunteerism of the community.

This school is great. Great teachers, administration and support staff. I love the fact that there is a nurse in the building during school hours. No sharing a nurse with another school. Many of the "BIG" school systems in the area have nurses that travel from school to school. This school also offers art, music, gym and library. Students are great also. This is just a great school.

I'd have to say that I was disappointed with the communication. We readily got calls when our child was out of line, but to get return calls when we had concerns or even return emails was at best 20%. The school has a bullying problem which they didn't address until year end. It took 7 months and two personal visits to get address and phone records corrected.

My child attended this school this year and had a wonderful teacher...............But I have to say the principal is unresponsive to emails or phone calls and the front office staff is horrible!! A very unorganized school especially for a small school. Also if you are looking for a school with a useful P.T.A. this is not the school for you. Nothing but warring inside the P.T.A. and you never knew where the funds went..................So no I would have to say not that great of a school

This is a great school in a rural county with all the ammenities of a larger school system. It is very progressive in its technology and teaching styles. Teachers are friendly and students love going to school! :)

My daughter started Jouett from another school up north that was larger and i had concerns on how she would adjust because Jouett is smaller however,that turned out to be a plus because she had gotten more one on one time with her teacher.The school community is great and we are very happy with our choice.

I think Jouett is the best elementary school in the county. The teachers truly love their job and the parent involvement is exceptional! Jouett is a small school which I think is a major plus! I am so happy and relieved that my kids get to continue attending Jouett after the redistricting for the new elementary school! Keep up the great work Jouett Elementary!!!!

I have one child who's gone to Jouett from K-5 and another who's on the 3rd year at the school. I have nothing but praise for the fine job being done. Nowhere is perfect, but of the elementary schools in the district I believe Jouett is the best. I've had an excellent relationship with the teachers, administrators, and other staff. Kudos to all!

This is my son's 2nd year at Jouett and I have found that the teachers are wonderful. I've had a few problems with the Principal and Asst Principal, but my son's education is always first, so I tend to lean more to the teachers. Overall, this is an okay school.
