jbz is the best school of all time From survival skills, just to having mr. k. There is no school in the world that compares to that of jbz. this school was one of the best things that have happened in my life and i will never forget the hours and hours of singing slip sliding away, and tin soldier. mr k is the coolest teacher ever and i miss him playing the guitar ! i hope that for many years to come people can continue to enjoy his teachings.

Although I attended JBZ school many years ago, it still remains one of the highlights in my life.  I am now a teacher, and love using JBZ as an exemplar for how school can be!  :)
