Walter Jackson Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

My family moved to Decatur from out of state almost two years ago, and my daughter is about to finish her second year at Walter Jackson. I can't say enough good things about this school! We (my husband, daughter, and myself) absolutely love Walter Jackson and are so very pleased with our decision for our daughter to attend WJES. We will recommend WJ highly to anyone who asks and even to those who don't. The principal, teachers, and rest of the staff are all amazing, and the school itself is always well kempt. The culture and education that my daughter receive daily from her teachers and the diverse student population will last a lifetime.

WJES is an excellent neighborhood school.It is always clean and so well maintained by their support staff. The ladies in the front office are always welcoming and eager to help. WJ contains great administrational leadership, with some of the most knowledgeable and caring teachers around. Combine these attributes with small class sizes and you have the recipe for an outstanding school environment. We chose to keep our kids at Walter Jackson also and have never once regretted that decision. I will only give WJES 5 stars for a rating because that is as high as the rating will go.

Walter Jackson is a great school. I love its small school atmosphere. It is as close to you can get in small numbers as a private school. The administration is great and are always eager to help. The teachers have loved on my children and that is really important to know when you are away from your kids. We moved school districts to be able to go to a smaller school. The children are well taken care of and highly prepared. Walter Jackson has high test scores. The PTA at the school is also very proactive and is very involved. PTA welcomes any parents/guardians to come be a part of the school. It's a great place to send your children.

I moved here from Fairfax County, Virginia and have high expectations for my children's schools. We researched all our options, private, public--in other districts and WJES, which is our district school. After speaking with other parents and touring the school multiple times, we decided WJES had what we wanted. We have not been disappointed. It is a wonderful gem of a school. My first grader is thriving, reading like crazy, developing leadership skills and loves school; and my 4 year old cannot wait to be a student there--she's already picked out her teachers. We are impressed by the academics, attention to arts and physical fitness as well as leadership and good citizenships. We could not be happier with our choice.

We love Walter Jackson Elementary School! As a teacher at a different school in the same district, I can honestly report that I know a great deal about most of the elementary schools in our area (including those outside of Decatur City Schools), and I am proud to say that we would choose Walter Jackson over and over again! The educators and administration far exceed my expectations for what a school should provide educationally, morally, physically, and, most importantly, emotionally. I feel good knowing that I drop my 7-year-old off at a school every morning where he feels confident, comfortable, and excited about what is going to happen every single day.
