I love this school lol i love my teacher Mrs. Mcfadden ! All my teachers are nice. I like hanging out with my friends we have more freedom than we did at my other school. One improvement is for them to have longer and better Pep Assembleys!

I give this school a five star rating. Opportunites are excellent and rival that of other districts in the same area. Our school has deficiencies just as any school would but we also have academic programs that challenge students to think, create and be there very best. A school is a reflection of the community and stakeholders that contribute to it. Those of you that gave the school a 1,2,or even a 3 rating need to rate yourselves and your level of genuine participation in the overall school wide plan. If you only came as a parent to drop off, pick up, or PTC your own child and did not positively contribute to the overall health of the school give yourself a 1. If you are a student who didn't go beyond what was offered and contribute to creating a positive working environment for everyone give yourself a 1.

Jack Robey is an awful school. I know because I went there. After my first year I knew I did not want to come back. The principal treated people a certain way I guess based on how well he knew you. In summary I do not think Jack Robey was a good school

I think that Jack Robey could be much better. One of the only reasons I went to the school was because of the band, and thats whats keep most of my joy and feelings of not leaving the school. Its a little dangerous , but yea nothing really happened to me but It could have and its not all on the school its on the kids to!
