I overheard my child's friend ask my child if they ever felt like their language arts teacher treated them more harsh then the rest of the class because that was the way this kid saw it. They could see how he treated my child unfairly compared to the rest of the class.
Completely disappointed with the teachers and administrators at this school. I don't really even know what the purpose of a counselor at school is, we never once heard from them regarding our child's grades. Neither the teachers nor the administrators were concerned with her success. As a parent we can only do so much to help our children at some point the school needs to do there part too.
My son received a mediocre education at best from this school. My daughters experience was better several years ago. The teachers are spending more time telling the kids how bad off the district is financially and that a tax levy must be passed, rather than actually teaching. I do not appreciate my son coming home from school with a stomach ache from worry about his teachers pay and insisting that I must vote to help his teachers. The kids do not deserve to be burdened with adult matters. My son will not be returning in August for this reason.
I read these complaints about this school and I have to speak up. Do you know who complains about DRJHS? Parents of students who don't know how to behave! DRJHS has high expectations for their students. If you think that it is the teacher's fault that your kid can't behave, I say go find another school and see if they will put up with your kid. The large class sizes are bad enough without the teacher having to deal with juvenile delinquents on top of that. So if you have a problem with this school because they are hard on your kid, maybe try some discipline at home and quit sending your problems to this school!
