    "I have had a wonderful experience with the Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers. They were passionate about the children and great educators! However, this school is apart of the ever declining Phila. School District and unfortunately does not have enough resources to continue the great experience throughout the upper school (grades 3-8). The principal is also very rude and disconnected from the student body. She has no desire to communicate with concerned parents as she will simply refer you to call the school district. No one from Phila. School District will EVER return a parent's phone call as they simply just DO NOT care. This was the best elementary school left in this district and it is very sad to see it go so far down hill. I have transferred my now 2nd grader to a private school."

    "My son just finished his first year at Jenks and will enter third grade in the fall. He was previously in a suburban school and actually had a better experience last year at Jenks. His teacher was wonderful as is the principal. My son is academically advanced and his teacher was able to keep him interested in class (he had issues with boredom in his previous school). My son has often been the target of bullies, being short for his age and smart, and he experienced less bullying this year than he had in the suburbs. In addition,many of the parents are very involved and supportive of the school."

    "My son just graduated from J.S. Jenks Middle School in June. He attended Jenks from 1-8 grades. We had an excellent experience there. Never any fights, bullies or conflicts the whole time he attended. The teachers, counselor and staff were professional, caring and nurturing to the children. If there were more schools like Jenks in the Philadelphia School District more kids would attend public schools over the now popular Charters."
