    "I have two children currently attending the JBE school of Global Leadership. We are lucky to have so many good schools in Mt. P. and you can't really lose with any of them. Favorite features of JBE: Global Leadership theme is priceless in the lessons it teaches our kids on life - had no idea it would have an immediate impact, HUGE playground (with actual trees :) ), parent advice is welcomed and appreciated without allowing the parents to overtake the administration and small class size. Our school is older and could use some updates but, I will be sad to lose our character touches on the walls by our children. It makes me smile to see the wall murals and quotes and pictures. I feel like our school is a throwback to the community education of my youth. In this day and time a true community school like ours is hard to find. We all live in the surrounding neighborhoods. A lot of our teachers attended or have children that attended our school. Plus, we are one of only three Mt. P/SI schools to be zoned even in the new maps to attend Moultrie Middle School."

    "I have 3 children at JBE. We moved here from Maryland over the summer. All 3 of my children have really great teachers and the school administrators have been very helpful. I am very excited about the global leadership aspect of the school as my kids come home talking about the 7 habits. It was really cool when my 8 year old came home and said that he needed to "put first things first" and do his homework before he played."

    "I would be more wary of this school than what these reviews are saying. Based on personal experience, I would say that this school has that yuppy tendency to cover up things that they don't want the public to know about. As someone who volunteered there one school year, I can tell you that I saw one teacher do something that crossed the line of how teachers should discipline a student in this day and age. The incident was reported, but amazingly enough, the teacher is still working there in the same grade. Also, don't mistake higher test scores with quality instruction either. The students of this school, given the demographics, are much more likely to score higher regardless of the quality of instruction. Just something to keep in mind."

    "I have 2 children that attend James B. Edwards. We have been very pleased with the education and care our children have received there. The staff and teachers are working hard to give their best for our kids! We truly have a "family feeling" at our school ... It takes a village to raise these kids well these days!! The entire JBE family is looking forward to being The Global Leadership School in Mount Pleasant, SC! We are excited about all the opportunities are kids are going to have."
