Janney's curriculum is dumbed down and the teachers in 3rd grade seem very apathetic. Most of the school personnel don't know who they children are and where they are in the school. The school promotes their liberal views and push them on the children. In general the teachers don't seem invested. I guess it is public school and not meant to be high quality.
This school has a very diverse population that makes up a strong student body of 700 students. With an awesome principal at it's helm, education strategies continue to evolve to meet the needs of the students. The PTA is very involved with promoting these strategies through financial support from the Janney community. Janney also has an after care program until 6:30pm, and after school enrichment activities, such as robotics, piano, flag football, and cooking. Note: This is one of the top performing schools in north west D.C..
Janney is great. My Son is a fourth grader that hated going to school before Janney. The teachers and students welcomed my Son making his school day fulfilled with a well balaned education and social environment. The teachers are dedicated to ensuring the success of every Student academic involvement. The Principal make certain that all students are safe and well taught.
The principal has a laser-like focus on fostering a professional community based on quality instruction. The teachers care about good teaching, and they have a shared sense of what it looks like. The principal is level-headed, strong communicator, community-minded---doesn't always do what the parents want, but does always have the children's Education in mind, with every decision. The reason for the positive tone in this learning community starts with the Principal.
