My two children attended this school for four years and the quality has gone way down. The academics, teachers, and leadership are all questionable. Public schools nearby do better and have more extra curricular activities. The fifth and sixth grades were combined in the 06-07 school year and the discipline issues were horrible. I have moved both my children to different school and would not recommend this school to anyone.
This school lacks very serious communication skills. There is no consistency with staffing. There is too much of a political undertone at the school, my first thought was that charter schools were formed so that parents could have a say in their children's education, this school doesn't seem to want to do that. Would not recommend any one send their children.
School has budget and board issues. Do your research, and speak to other parents.
Both my children have gone to JMCA since they were 5 years old. We been through some chances but it has been worth it. We are soo happy our children are doing oustanding. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. I have to drive 5 miles each morning to take them to school, but it's soo worth it!
Seems to be a pretty good school, however, we're concerned about the lack of a computer lab and availability of computers in general. Thinking of moving to D-20 school district for next year.
Outstanding school! Core Knowledge teaching is how the kids do so well.
This is a great school but has had some exponential communication problems.
This school has a great staff but has some serious issues in its political background. I do not recommend any parent send their child their.
