This school is a great school for my children. There have been maybe two instances where my son was knocked down by another child but the principle immediately remedied the situation and I couldn't thank them enough. Their staff is also great. The class sizes are good and not over crowded. Intervention for those who need it, is here also. After school programs and running club is awesome too! I recommend it.
Great school with great teachers! My child is striving and enjoys going to school everyday. I am proud to say my child is a John Muir Eagle!
John Muir School is an exelant school for children to learn i would like to go there myself if i werea child.. MY children love there teachers!!!
Great school my kids are doing very well under the teachers at John Muir
This school has some great teachers and great learning abilities. This schools faults are that they do have favoritism and its unfair. The school has some very strict rules. Don't be suprised when your kids come home with a lot of homework!!
We moved to the school 2 years ago and my kids have thrived here. Our experience has showed me that curriculum throughout the state is basically the same. School environment (which includes students, teachers, administration & parents) is what make a learning community excel. JSo far, the JM learning community has been exceptional.
Very strong PTA.It is very easy to access information about your kids through the Principal or teachers.Office staff is very helpful & informative.And alot of very excellent teachers.
Both of my children have gone to JME and i feel the education has been good. The teachers have mostly been good. The principal knows all of the children by name. They are a GATE school which has been wonderful for my daughter. I highly reccommend this school for the GATE program. THe other levels are adequte. MY only complaint is that the teachers do not challenge the children who need more than grade level if they arent in GATE.
Academic programs are fine. However, the communication between the parents and the Principal needs improvement. As a parent of a 3rd grader, I have had to personally contact the school in order to find out more information when my child has had an issue instead of having the school contact me and discuss the matter. There has even been an occassion where the principal responded to me by saying that I did not get a return call because she felt confident that my child would relay the information to me. Although my child could have relayed this information to me, an 8 year old child should not be expected to fulfill the principals obligation to respond to the parent. This was very poor judgment on the part of the Principal. If a parent calls the principal regarding their child, it merits a call back.
My daughter attended this school through 2nd Grade and had a great experience.
I had a wonderful experience at this school.Teachers are all great & wonderful always there to help students.Excellent music,computer & library prg.The principal is always on her feet going from one end to the other.My son started this school in K.G and is in fourth grade now I never had any complaints.I also want to mention that staff at the office is very helpful. They also have a great PTA that organizes different fundraisers and activities throughout the schoolyear.I definately will recommend this school.
The education my child is getting at John Muir is far better then the one my oldest had received at a school in the same district. The teachers teaching methods and the parents participation in the school is far more greater then I ever felt possible.
Understand a wonderful school however unable to get child enrolled due to overcrowding and new house developments and not enough schools.
We found the John Muir a compassionate and stimulating environment. We requested and evaluation of our daughter due to her difficulty in completing her homework. John Muir teachers were more than happy to assist our daughter, enabling her to do well, even prior to the completion of the study. (It took the school nearly a year to complete). They found she had a minor problem, which was easily addressed.
