As a student in this school, the community is absolutely awful. Free cursing, the campus littered with trash, the bathrooms dirty, absolutely terrible teachers. All we learn is things from 5th grade, and it's just simply a waste of time. If you're considering about coming here, don't. I have straight A's just because it's so easy. There will also be a lot of writing on the walls of the bathrooms and inappropriate comments on benches. The only thing that is considerable is the food. I regret going here and I prefer home school over this trash. I get stressed a lot here as well. I can't seem to learn anything new.
This school is the worst, Im a student in Joseph George, in Digital Art, the computers are very sucky, the district buys computers , BUT NOT FOR DIGITAL ART, only for other classes that dont need them. Best school ever...not By the way this place is so ghetto. We have to wear uniforms because they think we'll join gangs. We're like 13...seriously
My child love Joseph George. He is in a great music program and has performed all over San Jose. The Principal and Assisant Principal have done a great job in making the school inviting for students and parents. My child was challanged academically everyday. Thank you for such a great school experience!
The test scores at Joseph George have risen steadily. The principal and staff are wonderful and have made significant positive changes at George.
Wonderful Visual and Performing Arts School. With budget cuts to education making it harder to provide elective programs, George is adding more and more every year. The Principal and Vice Principal are great leaders and the teaching staff is dedicated. The Arts Showcases are wonderful. My child has enjoyed his time at Joseph George Middle School and I am excited for my younger son to get here.
This school is absolutely terrible. No child should have to suffer going through three grueling years at this school. The principal leadership is VERY sub-par. There is absolutely ZERO effort to improve the quality of education at this school. Questions and suggestions are often disregarded. Pointing out one little flaw can cause extreme amounts of rage and thus become detrimental to the process of improving this school's potential. The lack of leadership is astonishing.
I jst love this schoo li have a lot of friends there! THe teachers are awesome even though there could be some consequences we ar still together like a family!!!!

OMG! this school is the best thing that has ever happened to me and my four children. The teachers are great and the students are bright and talented. Thank you Joseph George, thank you
I have lived in the Alum Rock school district since 2000. Never have I been so dissatisfied with a district. There is always a different principal, or different teachers. Cannot have a decent school board.
Joseph George has very hard working and professional administrators.
George has a very hard working and dedicated staff focusing on students strenghts and doing a wonderful job!! Keep it up.
This Is my Daughters first year at Joseph George. Im not happy with the Teachers. Im moving out of the area so that I can move her. She dose not feel safe at that school.
