Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!

Parent: My husband & I specifically bought our home in this district for our son to attend Jordan Creek Elementary in Kindergarten. He is now in the 4th grade, & I cannot express how IMPRESSED we are with Jordan Creek from the Exceptional Teachers, One on One Learning, Academics and Student Morale the school exemplifies in!
Each year, it is hard to think that the next years teacher can be as wonderful as the current year & then I realize EVERY year it has continued and how invested each teacher is & how they truly care about their students.
The Best decision we have ever made is allowing our son to have the best education & Guidance from some of the best Teachers, Staff and Facility that only Jordan Creek can offer.

Lawson Elementary School

- Johnston Community School District, IA
- PK, K-5
Parent: I love lawson and I love johnston schools. I don't want my son anywhere else. Been there, done that. This is where he needs to be. They care about the kids, they learn what they need to, they go do things and are involved in the community. The only reason they don't have 5 starts from me is because a lot of the kids and activities are quite click-ish. A lot of kids are snobby, but we'll deal with it. It's worth it for us.

Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
