I can't say enough good things about this school. We were in another school district a few years ago and was unhappy with their attention to special needs and speech/language delay. This school has gone above and beyond for my child with special needs. The speech/ language teacher and his class teacher have been so encouraging and patient he enjoys going to school again. Both my children have learned so much in math and science they can't wait to go to school this next year.

Jack Anderson is arguably the finest public elementary not just in Summer County but all of TN. It is one of only two recognized STEM elementary schools in the state. As a parent who has two children at JAE, one who is about to progress to 6th grade, I can say that I am very satisfied with the education my kids have received at JAE. The entire staff and faculty do an amazing job. In addition, th PTO annually raises significant funds to subsidize the educational experience at JAE. Take a look at the ratings of this school on additional sites and you will see they are constantly outstanding scores. I am very thankful my children have been able to attend Jack Anderson.

Great academics. Poor in cultural integration. My son is in first grade and one of the few African-Americans that attends JAE. No male teachers either (other than Assistant Principal).

As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
