Worst School we have ever attended! Kids are treated like cattle being yelled at with a bullhorn. Teacher are hard to contact and didn't return calls or emails. Principal is a joke-spend most time posting on Instagram! More fights then even the high school. They worry about spending money on sign and not provide math books or computer for classrooms. DON'T send your kid here!
Lots of yelling, one administrator uses a bullhorn to yell at kids daily and is very rude to both students and parents, very unpleasant atmosphere. My kids hate going to school there!! We are pulling both of our kids and going to private. I would not recommend this school to anyone. We came from another state where my kids actually enjoyed going to school. Can't wait to see them actually excited about going to school again.
Military family who has had two children in PJHS. Awesome staff, great experience both academically and athletically. Definitely the best overall experience available in the River Region. School pride is unmatched!
HEED ALL THESE WARNINGS!!!! This is the worst school. My Son had been MAJOR BULLIED in 7th grade and 8th grade. The old principle in 7th grade had taken care of the student that was bulling him in 7th grade . Since the new principle started her reign in his 8th grade year. The bully situation didn't stop, instead it intensified. On the bus and on school campus.. I tried to get him to handle the situation himself but the teachers and principle just DID NOT CARE. It seems that they don't want to be bothered. And I as a parent take this seriously. My son never bothered anyone. He is a avid reader and as long as he had something to read he stayed to himself. With the exception of a few friends that he had hung out with. He was in all Honors classes. But he also was not into sports, and they are all about the sports. They just don't care or take time out of their day unless your child is a child of the Autauga County School Board. Then your in the "click". If you care about your child's education that is not effected by bullies then stay clear of this school. We had to move out of state to get him out of that bad situation...
The teachers at PJHS are some of the most gifted and dedicated we have ever seen! The school is highly organized, and I've never doubted sending our children there. Your child is in great hands at PJHS!
