I have two children who attend this school. My oldest has just finished kindergarten and his academic test scores were great! He has learned much and his confidence level is so high because of the quality of teaching and the encouraging atmosphere. As with any school, you have to partner with the teachers in educating your children. If you do this at JSEEC, your child is sure to have a great educational expereience. P.S. Going into our third year at this school, the lunch menu has plenty of variety, it offers fruits and vegetables too, my kids have no complaints!

My child has been attending this school since the age of 2. I have seen a tremendous improvement in his behavior and his learning. The school does have some organization issues, but they have come a long way compared to 4 years ago. They do need more qualified teachers, activities, and field trips. The kids don't eat beans and franks every day. The menu does consist of different items, but the only problem is those items are offered every week. I believe Friday is the only day they swich up. Overall as far as the environment and learning, I think it is a great school. They just need someone to come in with the motivation, experience, and authority to get the school organized on the level of other Christian Schools. Maybe the new Principal will have what it takes to get this school where it should be.

This school is wonderful! The two parents who mentioned something about the leadership and the kids eating beans & franks made those things up. My child learned a lot there and I wish that I could have kept there.

I was disapointed at the quality of leadership at this school. It was very unorganized.

The learning process is wonderful. However, the students are not fed correct, most days beans and franks. If you are a few days late on payment, they are standing outside sending kids home, crying and embrassed. I would not recommand this school to anyone.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
