I absolutely do recommend TJE. It's been the best primary school I could have asked for, for my daughter to attend. It's an A magnet school, and really focuses attention on the students. I'm proud that my daughter is and has been apart of this school since Kindergarden. Anyone looking for a great primary school, this is it.
