This school is hemorrhaging good students and good families. Issues from special needs to bullying are poorly dealt with by the administration and the principal. There are a handful of good teachers and others that one could only describe as average. The principal excels at giving people the illusion that the school is better then it actually is. There is also a great deal of nepotism at the school- not just with the children of employees but also with PTA members that are tight with the principal. They will always get the classes desired, bullies not disciplined, and even class changes.
The PTA is another matter--it has the potential to do a lot of good but seems to be held hostage by a group of moms that have been there for ages and are uncomfortable when faced with change. The spending of funds is out of control- and now they have been reduced to begging for money, with things like painting poles with your family name on it.
But the fact remains that while a huge number of families are unhappy with the school, the principal isn't in anyway concerned. All the houses being built at the end of Roscoe are zoned for Justice Street, so that means a huge potential of new students to come in and be bamboozled for a while, or at least until the principal manages to bamboozle her bosses and get promoted.
Great, caring teachers! Administrators are always helpful and very knowledgeable! The office staff is well organized. The parent community is fantastic! They have a very active parent center and many dedicated volunteers. I've been with the district for 18 years and this is by far the best school I've worked at.
Amazing teachers - some of the best in the country. so impressed! A few go above and beyond anything you would expect. I am stunned by the amount of extra time and assistance they give to their students.
Fifth year at this school and I am so thankful for the growth I have seen in my children. Each year they continue to become mature and responsible, not to mention brighter, through the dedicated staff and teachers. As a working mom I can feel stressed out about the amount of time I have for my kids. I am so thankful that this school is serving the community!
The administration at this facility is NON RESPONSIVE and gives great lip service to parents when it comes to dealing with bulling incidents of it students, but fails to take any real action as to guaranteeing the safety of its students. I WOULD AVOID THIS SCHOOL
4 years ago this school was amazing, they had a leader with experience and truly cared about her students well-being. Unfortunately their leader now is 1. never on campus to deal with stuff, unorganized and appears to show fake compassion. It is very frustrating when dealing with unorganized upper administration. There is a great deal of bullying that takes place on this campus, and is addressed in a unresolved fashion. There are very few repercussions when not doing right at this school, which I am unsure how this teaches the children right from wrong. I am giving the school 3 stars, because they do have some AMAZING teachers that really do care about the children and their futures. If i was starting out the process and going to have a 6 year journey with Justice all over again , I would seriously reconsider!

LET'S GO VOTE!!!
I am in my fifth year at this school and have seen a lot of the changes and been an active participant in our community. I'm not sure what the crazy ups and downs are that are being reported and I have volunteered on the yard and do not think that there is an unusual amount of bullying. Happy kids having a full childhood is what I have seen and experienced. Parents that go to PTA events and volunteer in the class know that this is a great school and I am thrilled to have got in on the lottery five years ago. Even though we moved we are still attended Justice and we fully support this excellent public school!
