Capitol Heights is such a great school. This school has some of the best teachers in the county. I am parent that has had 5 kids to attend CHJHS. I love everything about the programs and leadership. I have had so many great teachers to help my children. Ms. Gray, Mr. Holloway, and Ms. Peterson to name a few.

Capital Heights has been through major transition in the last few years. Our sons who both have learning disabilites have been treated with utmost respect from their teachers, the principal and the SE staff. Our philosophy on what makes a great school is simply this...parental involvement! The more we have been involved, the more we get what we think is needed with our children. I LOVE the principal, Mr Johnson who has high expectations from all the students as far as behavior and academics!! I LOVE THAT!!

Capitol Heights is a terrible school. Coming from a terrible neighborhood before moving to Montgomery, I thought I had seen the worst. The teachers seem not to care what kind of education is recieved, as long as they are getting paid. Unfair rules are taking place here, and quite frankly it is unfair. Next year my child will be attending a magnet school due to the poor effort the principal Mr.Johnson and the staff and faculty members are showing. If anything is need to be done, it would be a new principal and some work done on the school. As I observed the hallways are far too small for all of the students to travel period to period. It is a high danger area. Some medal detectors wouldn't do harm either.

I was a teacher at Capitol Heights Jr. High. This school is filled with loving teachers and administrators who have compassion and dedication to teaching. Some of the students who came from 'at risk' situations only needed nurturing and love from their home, school, and community. The staff did an excellent job working with students. Last year was a success do to the programs implemented by our administrative along with the teaching staff. Our principal, Mr. Pharrams taught us how to stick with three goals: being firm, fair, and constistant. Working there was the best experience of my teaching career and I hope only the best for the future of Capital Heights.

My son attended school and was verbally and physically abused by other students. After numerous failed attempts to resolve the conflicts within the school I was forced to report the problem with the County Board of Education and the State Board of Education as well. The school is overrun by hoodlums and behavior problems that the faculty and staff are too afraid to reprimand for their actions. I was forced to place my child in private school following 1 year of attendance. I recommend anyone planning on attending this school to seek other options. My son was robbed by students and was required to receive 20 stitches and 10 staples on his arm due to a student pushing him onto the bleachers and slicing his arm open to the bone. There were no teachers around and no student or faculty member received any disciplinary action whatsoever.
