“Jordan Glen is the best thing that has happened to my children. I have 2 kids enrolled there now. They are so happy. My kids look forward to school starting each fall. Where else can a kid get a great education and get to swim on Fridays!? JG is run by a family, and every child is considered a part of their family. Jeff, the founder of the school, loves all the students at JG, and they love him too. Class sizes are small so each child gets personal attention from their teachers. Students are allowed to learn at their own pace. If they are ahead in a subject, they don’t have to wait for their classmates to catch up, they can simply move on. Children are encouraged to be creative and share their passions. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and teach electives each semester. I personally taught an elective there and greatly enjoyed spending time with the students. There is no other place I’d send my children to school!”

“My children have attended Jordan Glen since pre-K. They are now in 6th and 8th grade. I feel blessed that they have never been bullied, and have always been excited to go to school. I think the outside setting and frequent outdoor activities are good for their bodies and souls. Advantages: small school, feels like family, in a beautiful outdoor setting, lots of traditions, respect for diversity, focus on teaching children to be good citizens: care for each other, mentor younger children, be kind.”

“My son just started at Jordan Glen this year; before he was in public school. I felt I was constantly asking for better communication and consistency. He would get home from school exhausted from the lack of social time, boredom, and stress. I heard some great feedback from other parents and from adults who went through JG as kids and I was convinced this was the best option. We are now in the school for almost two months and it has exceeded my expectations! I have never seen him more happy about going to school! “

“If you are looking for more for your child than what a public school has to offer, look no further than Jordan Glen! My dad, Jeff, has dedicated the last 50 years of his life to creating a supportive environment for children to learn, grow, love, and thrive! My husband and I moved back to Gainesville after having our first child, because we couldn’t imagine sending our children to any other school in the world. I may be biased, but if you are interested in Jordan Glen, reach out to be connected with alumni and parents. You won’t be disappointed if you make this investment for your children, I promise!”

“I am a parent of a recently graduated JG student. This school has been in existence since the 70s and graduated the majority of the IB graduates and future word successes in Alachua County. Sarah Sidner CNN reporter and winner of multiple Journalism awards makes the trek back from CA each year to visit her beloved school. Summer Land, author and social media influencer – JG Grad- wrote about her time at JG in her book Summerlandish. Pulitzer prize winner Jack Davis’ daughter graduated from here the year before my child left. Most of the parents are UF professors, involved in the arts, intellectual and invested in our planet. The extended family involved in the school volunteers their own time and financial resources to the school. The ideal JG student and parent are not mainstream public school America. This culture reminds me more of the schools I have seen in Sweden and Denmark. As in Europe, the kids are treated with respect and given many more freedoms than in public school. This leads to self confidence and curiosity in life. The students who attend tend to come from very educated households and tend to be academically motivated with a love of learning. JG may not be for everyone, but if you value a great education for kids in a safe and loving environment and do not like what you see in public schools- give JG a try. The school is easy to work with, listens and cares.”

“We started at Jordan Glen in the 2020-21 school year because of Covid, as we were looking for a smaller, safer and more outdoors learning environment for our kids. Now that we are there, I don’t see us leaving until each of our kids age out, because they are thriving! They are being taught to think for themselves and are challenged every day to be better humans. They also have a strong sports component that suits my kids well. It is a unique school, and we feel grateful that we found it!”
