I now have 2 children at Jean Parker School. One is in Kindergarten and the other is in 3rd grade. It's hard to believe! We have really liked the school, the teachers and the principal since the beginning, but this year has been very interesting, because it turns out that our kindergartner approaches school very differently. The teachers have been very supportive, understanding and HELPFUL as we navigate through their differences and learn how best to support them both scholastically. Principal Tang's door is always open and he is open to hearing ideas and feedback.
This school is a gem if you take a closer look. I had a very bad first impression with the previous principle at the very first day I register my son to first grade here. But I quickly find the school staffs are well trained, enthusiastic, and committed to children's education. By the end of the school year, I realize how much the previous principle has done to prepare the school for success. The new principle is energetic and easy to approach. I see great protential with this school and I am happy that my son is part of it.
Teachers and new principal are committed, professional and collaborative. The reading program is excellent...there are hundreds of books in each room so each child discovers the joy (& benefits!) of reading. My daughter is in her 6th year and we feel she has had an excellent education.
I am so pleased my daughter is at Jean Parker. I was not ready to do a review when she was in Kindergarten, but now that she is in First Grade, I feel that I know enough about this school to whole-heartedly recommend it. My husband was the one who found this school at the enrollment fair while talking to the principle. He was so impressed and insisted I take a tour. I had been to every school, Alice Fong Yu, John Yee Hall Chin, Sherman, Lilienthal, St. Mary s, St. Peters and Paul, Chinese American, you name it, I went on a tour. I wanted my child should go into the Bi-lingual Chinese program, but it was not meant to be, she was assigned to English. I was a bit disappointed, but to make the best of it, I enrolled her in Chinese school in Chinatown, now; she has the best of both worlds. The teachers at Jean Parker are the best! I am so pleased with my daughter s progress, and I know the teachers play one of the most important roles in her learning. She is motivated and challenged, even though there are many students in her class that are not at her level, she is given the opportunity to excel. If I were to choose all over again, Jean Parker would be my 1st & 2nd choice.
