    "Jewett School of the Arts used to be a wonderful school. Although my children have attended JSA for several years, we are currently looking at other options. The current principal, Dr. Tracy Nelson, has very poor leadership skills. Discipline is a very big problem at JSA. Dr. Nelson hoped that changing the schools uniform policy from jeans and t-shirts to very expensive khakis and polos (which many parents can't afford) would help with the discipline problems. It didn't. There have been many allegations of misconduct at JSA involving teachers and administrators. These allegations have led to several investigations by not only the Polk County School Board but the local news media as well. In my opinion, Dr. Nelson should be more concerned with the education that the children are receiving and the discipline issues instead of focusing so much on their appearance. Within the past two years, the school grade has fallen from an A to a very low C. I feel that until JSA gets a new principal the school will continue to go downhill."

    "Teachers can be great... or not so much. If feel that this year my child is wasting his time in 4th grade. Very sub-par teacher - little to no feedback. The major overhaul and construction going on is absolutely laughable - why this can not take place over the near-3-month break during the summer is beyond comprehension. Overall ok - much to be improved upon - still probably one of the better options in Winter Haven (sad to say!)"
