They have some really fantastic teachers, and some not so fantastic - just like most schools. What really makes this an outstanding school is the parent participation. Without that, I suspect this school would not be quite so wonderful. Also - the reported student/teacher ratio of 17 is a joke - last year we had 25 and this year 24. No TA's - just parent volunteers.
Jerabek is an amazing school! Principal Joiner knows children by name and always places the needs of children first. Test scores have increased in recent years largely due to the Jerabek FFO investment in professional development for all of the teachers with Just Think Literacy and Lucy Calkins. This has led to the children benefiting from teachers who are continual learners in their profession and are able to bring the latest teaching tools to the classroom. The culture at Jerabek is one of community with parents, grandparents, teachers, and administration working together. It is a very special campus providing children with a fantastic elementary school experience and an excellent academic foundation that prepares them very well for middle school and beyond.
Jerabek has a very strong and involved parent community. If it weren't for these parent volunteers, the school would be in absolute shambles. There is no leadership at all. The school is held together by a few great teachers and mobs of dedicated parents that contribute time, energy, and money to the school on a daily basis. Due to the lack of management, there are huge disparities between classes and virtually no cohesion between grade levels. Every year more excellent teachers and families leave the school for better places. The district needs to focus on putting competent management at this school.
It's our first year at Jerabek and I have to say I'm impressed. The teachers are great and the kids friendly. There is strong family support and there always seem to be a parent-volunteer in class. Great school!
