    "I went to this school in kindergarten and in first grade before I was moved to Grant Elementary School / MNO Grant Elementary School. My kindergarten teacher was nice and wanted the kids to learn. My first grade teacher, I did not get along with her. I did learn at the school. There was a playground for kindergarteners and a playground for the other elementary kids. I sadly do not know what is Jack London's current situation."

    "I am dismayed at the rating and test scores that Jack London received as I believe it doesn't reflect the true picture. The teachers are mostly dedicated and excellent. From Mrs. Jeans who instilled the love of reading and organizational skills to Mrs.Hamilton,Mrs. Carrigan,Mrs.Odegaard and Mrs. Martin who added to that foundation. I went to private Catholic schools and did find the teachers here comparable and actually more creative and inspiring. My daughter is now in the 7th grade but received an 11th grade reading level entering the 6th grade. Another son who was inspired and taught by a California Teacher of the Year Mrs. Allan, has graduated from a university and becoming a teacher. Another dd is currently in college. I still have a child in the first grade and I am confident in his teacher. Granted there is a wide variety of ESL students and maybe that is reflected in the scores as they are still acquiring proficiency and the scores may reflect the educational backgrounds of the parents which may reflect differently than the more expensive areas. However,I believe in the caliber of the JL teachers are exceptional."

    "Jack London is a family oriented school. All 4 of my daughters went there and now my granddaughter attend. The teachers are fabulous. The parents and teachers work well together to ensure the children's academic success. The Principal Debra Harrington is a remarkable woman who always strives to set a great example on the children of both learning and having fun at the same time. Learning is suppose to be a fun adventure, isn't it??"

    "I have two boys one in second and one in third.At first i did not think highly of this school.Mostly for small things and being uninformed.After getting involved with PTA and volunteering in the classroom.My opinion has changed alot.The principle is warm and caring and teaches a nine week course to inform and involve the parents in whats going on not only in the school,but with your kids and district as well.She believes that in order for a child to be successful home and school must work together to create and nurture each child's own individual talents.I see the working parents that do just drop their kids off.And that's the extent of their involvement with their child's education.I used to be one of them.But i know now that if you get involved and active with your school.Your school becomes the best place in the world to educate your kids."

    "I transferred my kids to Jack London after Turner Elementary was not the right fit for them. My son's 1st grade teacher Mrs. Sawyer is excellent. Immediately she was very helpful and understanding. She even called me to tell me how great he was doing and improving. This is what great teachers do!"
