School Reviews

  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - This has been a fantastic education and school for our son. Being from Sutter Creek, we had the choice of sending him to Ione or Jackson. After researching the two schools, and taking his preferences into consideration, we happily chose Ione JH! The teachers are great to deal with and all have a great open communication with both parents and the kids. They stick to their ''homework'' rules and don''t let the kids slip into bad working habits. We have friends whose kids started out in Jackson but were dissatisfied enough to transfer them to Ione. It''s a great school with a fantastic principle, patient and knowledgeable teacher''s and a fantastic office staff. 5+stars! - Posted by Parent
