Extremely disorganized. Principal is much too young and never available. I was not very welcomed in the school but kept my child there because a friend give a good recommendation. Although my child did learn a lot the teacher was amazing but the amount of homework was absurd and the staff seemed unhappy and overworked. I love my child's teacher but I did not like JCGCS
