Jesse White Learning Academy is a great neighborhood school. The teachers and principal are caring and professional. Whenever I have an issue or need to see the principal, she is always available. Some of the kids and parents don't care about what they do or how they do it. One time another kid hit my son and I went to speak to the parent, that parent blamed me and my kid and even threatened us. I was just being a concerned responsible parent. I have 4 children in this school and I love it. Ms. K is a good teacher and Dr. Levie is a great principal.
