Map of John Muir Middle School address.
September 03, 2013
I'm a parent of a sixth grade student at John Muir middle school. I had concerns about classes since the beginning of the school year. There are no counselors available to speak with parents. And the principal does not address the issue. Not happy with the communication between office staff, principal and parents. Calls are not returned And everyone is too busy if you stop by.

I think John Muir is a great school. ALL teachers and staff are always nice and helping. Most of the students there are pretty nice too. There are very few fights and even though this school has kind of low test scores, they aren't the teachers' fault. A lot of the teachers there are excellent and I'm an A/B+ student there. It is a pretty safe campus and it always feels welcoming. There are a large variety of clubs too. I love this school! And when I read some of the past reviews, it saddens me of the things that people say about this school. It is a great school and it has improved a lot in the past years.

this school is a family, evry student here love and can fit in to any category, as a student myself, i have to say that jhn muir is the most welcoming school ever. they focus on the things you need help on and are already helping kids get to college! the teachers here are so supportive and the counselors are very helpful. the staff lets all students accept who htey are and theaches them to love thier differences.:)

As an educator myself and a mom of a son who attends John Muir, I can tell you that this school is very good. The facility is a bit out dated but the kids seem to love to be there and the teachers are very dedicated. Not to mention it is a very safe environment for children to learn.

I attend this school Now. I really like all the teachers because they help you with anything you need. I feel really safe and one of my math teachers-Mr.Leming became the teacher of the year for the district. But there is not a lot of extracurricular activities and there are many fights But besides that i love it :]

The academic programs are great. My daughter participates in all available to her. My daughter is in Band which has an excellent teacher, Bob Wright. Level of parent involvement is very low.

I think this is a good school with plenty of resources to help children learn. They are focusing on minority achievement and will close the gap.
