Located in the Kendall section of Miami, FL, Jack D. Gordon is an “A” rated community school serving pre-k thought fifth grade. With consistently above average test scores across all subjects and an increasingly closing achievement gap for disadvantaged children, Jack D. Gordon is a little-known educational gem in the established and family friendly Country Walk neighborhood and ranks among the top 10% of public elementary schools in Florida.


In addition to offering a rigorous education, Jack D. Gordon Elementary school offers an extended foreign language program, Gifted classes and TEAM program (Teaching Enrichment Activities to Minorites). Extracurricular activities offered at the school include strings, robotics and art and after school care is available.


High test scores aren’t the only thing going for JDG. The teachers and staff are also receiving high notes with 100% of teachers having state certification, 95% of teachers with more than three years’ experience and an overall teacher student ratio of 15:1, Jack D. Gordon is looking impressive overall.


But it’s not rainbows and butterflies. We all know that no school is perfect, and Jack D. Gordon is no exception. While test scores are above state average across all subjects and student demographics, students with disabilities are scoring below state averages. This suggests that these students may not be getting the support they need to be successful. According to parents at the school have given a score of 3.5 out of 5 on support for children with learning differences.


Overall, Jack D. Gordon is an impressive school. High academic progress and high-test scores means students have strong academic skills and this school is doing an excellent job of supporting academic growth as compared to most schools.
