    "My daughter attended EJE from K-5th, graduating in 2014. Things were a bit rocky at first, but it was due to the ridiculous pressure placed on the teachers, teachers 'retiring', and issues with the previous principal. The principal who started in the 2013/14 school year gave a breath of fresh air to the students and faculty! One reason I love this school is the diversity! The school is in one of the most diverse clusters (districts) in Georgia, which is wonderful for the children...."

    "I am writing this review in response to the comment written by the AA parent from San Francisco. As I agree with your point that W.T. Jackson is not the most ethnically diverse elementary school in Atlanta, insomuch, a parent who is as involved would have researched the ethnic population as noted on this particular website prior to registration. My advice to AA parents who have children currently attending or are considering Jackson as their school of choice, is to be EXTREMELY involved in the PTA, keep your eyes and ears WIDE open and let your expectations for the treatment of your children be held in the HIGHEST regard, and your experience will be GREAT!"

    "So far I can not say enough about this public elementary school. There is such a positive atmosphere the minute you walk into the door. Kids are enthusiastic, staffers smiling, teachers seem thrilled to be there, what more can you ask? Oh academically the kids are on their toes, due to the high standards. It's an IB school also, and the French teachers are great. Too bad it does not go to 12th grade! Wish I had more time as a working parent to be involved in the PTA!"

    "I am over the moon about Jackson Elementary. My son is autistic and this school has the best special needs teachers. It is an academically competitive school and I love that my son has access to the spirit of academic excellence but not at the expense of embracing him as a whole person. The teachers are just brilliant, effervescently enthusiastic, firm in the best possible way and fun. If I were a kid, I would be so excited to go to Jackson. So glad my son has the opportunity!"

    "I have two girls at WTJ, one in Grade 2 and the other in Grade 5. Our family immigrated to the US 2 years ago and my children happily and easily settled into the school. The PTA and parents are very involved and there is a wonderful sense of committment and community amongst, teachers, administrators, parents and children. My children are both high performers, sweet children and were lovingly accepted into the school. The teachers are very nurturing and attentive and all the teachers are available for consults whenever the parents need to speak to them. Dr Reich, the headmistress, is acutely aware of everything in the school, is up-to-date on the State and district school issues and navigates the public school system with aplomb. The school is amazing and, coming from a country where my children had a high level of private education, I was concerned about public schooling, but all my doubts disappeared at WTJ."
