Our daughter, Isabell, entered kindergarten at SJEDS shortly after we moved to Jacksonville in 2004. She is now a rising high-school senior. We truly believe the atmosphere at SJEDS helped Isabell develop characteristics that make her a very special person, traits that were clearly nurtured and encouraged by the teachers, staff and the overall atmosphere that lives within the school. She has a strong sense of self and an amazing empathy towards other people, friends, strangers, whomever, an absolute love for learning, a firm set of faith and beliefs along with an intense commitment to just being a good person. There has never been a day and there will never be a day that Pam or I do not give credit to the role that SJEDS had in helping to shape our daughter.
