Avoid this school if possible. They want only perfect children with parents that donate a substantial amount of money. Save your child the turmoil.
Definitely been a positive experience for my daughters
My son has an IEP and struggles in reading. His teachers have worked so hard this year with him and he's made so much improvement! I'm very pleased overall with JTE!
Zero stars if I could. If you come from a different state like I did, it’s night and day difference on how schools are ran. I think that teachers and staff should go to a state like NJ and see how they run education the right way. I also do not feel this school is safe. If your child stays after school no one picks up phone in office god forbid a parent is late there is no way to let anyone know. The campus to me is far from being secure. For example in NJ, you had to be buzzed into the school or you could not get in, once in the lobby area they had another wall with bullet proof windows and once again you could not get out of the lobby area without being buzzed in a second time. After that you were immediately escorted to main office before you could go anywhere in the school. In order to pick up your child you had to sign them out at the end of the day. If they are not familiar with you, they asked for your ID and sometimes brought into main office so that they can check the list that you were able to pick up the child. This was great because you had to sign out the time, date and the parent had to write their name that way if someone god forbid was not suppose to be picking up your child it was all recorded. The classroom doors were locked to any one in the hall. If you wanted to get into classroom you had to knock and a teacher would let you in. They had lock down drills which this day and age you need them so that everyone knows exactly what to do including teachers. Also parents in NJ were not allowed pass the lobby or gym when picking up and dropping off. I was not happy when parents were allowed to walk their child right to their classroom for first week of school. That is so unsafe if you think about it. All these parents were all over the campus with no one monitoring who’s coming and going.
