    "This is the first year my kids are going to Thelma Jones. So far my oldest is doing well in class and my youngest is getting the patience and persistence they need. I hope this year works out and this is like a 2nd home to us. As parents we cannot expect our kids to learn everything they need to at school therefore parents must remember that we are responsible for our children's mind, bodies, and souls. Do not just hand them over and expect them to get to it. Its your responsibility to mold them and enrich their lives; its also your responsible to hold the school's staff responsible for their role in your child's life. No one's time should be wasted. Expect the most of your school, your children, and yourself. Turn off the t.v. and read a book or have them watch something more educational, reduce time spent with video games and tell them to go outside. Exploring is good for the mind. Be responsible parents....not mindfully abstent. Your child's education is what you make it with your child."

    "TOPS! Best of the best in Mansfield, Tx. We moved last year & changed to Thelma Jones Elementary School. Thelma Jones is an outstanding public school. We could not ask for a better educational enviroment. The parental involvment is outstanding and the teaching and admin staff is incredible. The principal, counselors and teachers come early, stay late and even some Saturdays to offer things like tutoring, reading club and great performing and visual arts programs. The expectations of excellence are unparalleled at Thelma Jones and it starts at the top. Thank you Mr. Gray for giving us the support and motivation to accept nothing less than the best from ourselves and all of our children."

    "This school is the most horrible school my children have ever attended. I am pulling my 2nd grader out to attend Connections Academy at home with me next year. This is a free program. My 1st grader, who doesn't yet qualify for the free program until 3rd grade, will also be pulled out and I will pay for her to get out of this school ASAP!!! The office staff is rude, the principal is pretty much nonexistent and parents are made to feel very unwelcome for anything. You're never informed of any kind of parties or activities and if you are, it's last minute and you also can't bring any younger siblings....even to an end of the year party at a park!!! I'm sorry, but I want to be involved in my child's education and this school doesn't provide that opportunity!"

    "My children both went there last year. I had several problems throughout the year and had to have my son transferred out of the school. I tried to get them to change teachers, and the administration refused. I met with teachers and administration several times to tell them what I thought would work best for my son, and they did not listen at all. I never knew what was going on at the school. When I did get information about events, it wasn't always correct and my children ended up missing events for no reason. I pulled both of my children out of the school and they will be attending elsewhere. I do not feel like anyone cared about my children and I feel like the administration was clueless as to how to run a school."

    "My child has been here three yrs and is heading to the 3rd grade.I would rate the school as 10/10 for the sweetest office workers.10/10 for the most wonderful, dedicated art,music,p.e, and computer teachers ever! Honestly,these enirchment teachers work hard to give these kids everything they have & they love each and every child! I trust them daily & never worry about my child.Now, each homeroom teacher is different & if you have issues then move them early in the yr to avoid confusion. Don't wait to address any issues! Although, the administration & I ended on a very rocky note this yr, I still believe the principal is a real sweety pie & that he did so many wonderful things this yr from awards to programs.I would also give a 10/10 for safety & 10/10 for cleanliness. My child loves it there & thats the most important factor 10/10."
