    "I have done everything I can on my end, as a parent, to make sure that my student is doing all of his work on time. I make sure he is taught respect and all that too. I am SO disappointed with this school! The teachers give 'due dates' but don't enforce them, so even if the kids turn in work a month late they still get full credit - its very much so an 'eh... if you wanna go ahead, if not, thats ok too' attitude there from the teachers. PLUS my student has gone off campus to the creek located on the other side of the fence before, and no one at the school had any clue until I caught him and reported him to the school. I am outraged at how poorly this school is doing in educating our children both with curriculum and teaching them life lessons! We are supposed to work as a team to help our students, so why is it that every time I do my part and look for support my legs are cut out from under me!"

    "We were very nervous about going to this school, after some of the negative reviews, but I can now say we are very pleasantly surprised. We moved from a private catholic school in Vacaville, and after several concerns with the academics and the negative administration, we decided on Jepson after other parents shared that they were pleased with the school. The offer XL, accelerated classes, for those students excelling. They offer Algebra XL, History XL and English XL. They also have band, media class, cooking, etc. Sports are awesome too! The campus is clean and safe. The kids are polite and my son has had no trouble transitioning into this school being new in 8th grade. The principal in passionate, the counselor is responsive and kind to the students and the administration is welcoming and helpful. After switching I hope other parents realize the quality of this school and stop paying for mediocre education at other private schools. I only docked the school a star cause the XL classes are often filled up and there is no room for students to add. I think the principal should encourage kids to get into XL classes and open more sections. Oh and this year Jepson was a API 804!"

    "Willis Jepson Middle School is one of the best schools I have ever attended. After reading some reviews, I can confirm how much of a bad learning environment the students could make it. There are various fights every once and a while, but the staff quickly and efficiently deals with issues like these. As for learning at the school, it is a breeze. The staff is more than willing to help your child succeed. That is the goal of every single teacher at Jepson. The students vary from culture to culture. It causes many issues between each and every one, but most of the time the students tend to get along. I highly recommend this school."

    "Both of my Grandaughters have attended Willis Jepson and I only have great things to say about the teachers and counseling office. Ms Anita is very helpful and eager to guide you in the right direction. Ms Waldrup and Ms Ayala and Ms Anita are superstars in my eyes. I have found only one area that I have not been happy about and that is the attendance office. I have felt ignored and felt that I was interrupting their conversation about what happened at home yesterday. They saw me when I walked in but chose to not acknowledge so. Hopefully this can be addressed and corrected in the future. Also the policy of writing a note to be excused for Dr. Apt etc. and not having parent sign child out should be changed. The girls said there are not a lot of fights or bullying at the school and if there was any it was taken care of right away. The only thing I do have a complaint about is I personally think there is way to much homework a lot of the time. If 2 or 3 teachers give 30 to 45 minutes of homework then it adds up and they have no relax time and I think they need that break. Jepson is a very good school in all and would not change schools."
