I love Jumpertown school. Our entire family has went there. Now our children are. We love it but very worried because they only have 1 first grade teacher and allot of the students are failing because they''re not getting what they need. One teacher can''t help all those kids. Sorry but she can''t! Almost 30 students in one class. It''s ridiculous! They can''t go anywhere and do anything as a class,like go to the pumpkin patch like they do every year or anywhere else because there''s way to many kids. It''s not right. But my main concern is teaching the kids right and giving the attention they''re suppose to have so they can pass! I have a feeling Alot will fail in that class!Get another 1st grade class,please!
