    "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."

    "I went to Jenks school did not like the school overall. I was in Jenks for 6 years K-5 i did not like it ,it was alot of bullying in 3-5 grade the teacher really did nothing about it. I am now 13 year old and because my mom but me in a better school my grades have we up and at Jenks it was hard to get help from a teacher we they are just sitting on there butts eating food out of a mini fridge in the class room, as well as fight would go on during class. I am no longer in Jenk but if i was my grade would not be were they are now and i most likely would been doing thing that i should not be doing ......... JENKS WAS A GOOD SCHOOL IN 2007-2010, BUT AFTER THAT GOOD TEACHER STARTED TO LEAVE AND THE SCHOOL WENT DOWN.... Do not but or keep your Kid there for middle school when i was in 5 grade i felt like i was in high school cause of all the drama and fights and bullying that was going on Thank you and look at other school before you pick JOHN STORY JENK SCHOOL............."

    "I was very concerned in 2008 when my girls Private School closed its doors for good. However, Jenks has exceeded my expectations. The curriculum is stellar and the staff from the Principal to the Janitor has our children's best interest at heart. Their is no doubt in my mind that my girls will get into the High Schools of their choosing!"
