J.C. Ellis Elementary School Reviews

JC Ellis is an ok school for academics, and it is nice that they have both French and Spanish immersion options.. We also love their diversity. However, it's a terrible school to receive a full education. There is no art, music, band, choir, or any additional activities for the elementary-aged children. They have no gymnasium and never participate in performances of any kind. They get way too much homework, no recess, and don't have field trips. This school is all work and no play, but science and social studies are virtually nonexistent. They are too worried about getting those reading and math scores up for the standardized tests. I think the only reason they even have the immersion program is to attract smarter kids from outside their district. Unfortunately for them, several of the good families with smart children are leaving for better schools for the reasons I listed above. Our kids are incredibly bored and dread going to school.
