Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton offer a wide variety of activities for people to participate in. My time here at JWP has been great! I have been at JWP since I was in my first year of preschool. The teachers that they have here are great along with the subjects that they are teaching! I would like to see a few changes though pertaining to academics. I think they should put more money towards the arts programs/classes. I think this because everyone loves being in those classes and there just are not enough resources. I also think the school should look into updating the classrooms. The classrooms we have now are outdated. There also isn't enough room for all of the new classes that they have added, so I think they should try to come up with a better plan for that as well.

Janesville Waldorf Pemperton is all around a pretty good school. Recently we renovated many different parts of our school. For example we built a brand new million dollar sports complex. We were able to get a brand new turf football stadium, brand new turf softball field, consessoin stand, and a huge parking lot. We also did a lot of renovating inside of our school. We made new classrooms, got a new lunchroom, re did our whole library, and fixed many things in both of our gyms. Having these facilities is amazing! This we we recently added lots of new online PSEO class options which was very nice to have a wide variety of classes to choose from. We are a farley small school so we are very involved with our youth when it comes to school and sports. Our sports team do farley decent, but in recent years we have had a football team go to state and a softball team who almost won conference. It very nice going to a school where your going to class with kids you grew up with.
