I made a big mistake when deciding to send my children to JSS. I did not do my homework. The school is mediocre at best. Certainly there are some good teachers, but unfortunately it is poorly managed. There is no continuity from k to 8th grade. Teachers do what they want for the most part (some teach and some do not). So basically, you are gambling on your kids education. Good luck!



- a
JSS does a good job for the first few years but once they have to actually learn something at a higher level, the school does a very poor job - once the kids reach 5th grade things turn south. Avoid sending your kids to JSS after 5th grade.




- a
JSS is not much better than a public school. Poor teaching especially in Math and Science. The administration that manages the school is non responsive and is only trying to manage the situation the best they can. The Diocese is oblivious to the problems or they choose not to deal with them. Send your child to public school and save the money for high school.



- a
Years after I completed grades 1-8 there, I am sad when I think of my time at JSS. Kindness was rare from staff and parents alike. I try not to think that my non-English speaking, single family home had something to do with the way I was treated. Supportive, intelligent priests when I was an altar boy keep me from giving zero stars.
