- a
One of the most welcoming schools ever. The principal and vice principal are both very approachable and care a lot about the students. The curriculum is challenging, but help is ALWAYS available. Most teachers go above and beyond to see the students succeed. Students who excel are encouraged to move ahead. My daughter took a high school course during 8th grade at CMJH. Love this school and this school district!

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
The accomodations are about the teachers not what the student needs. Your child will always be made to feel wrong for needing help.


Develops character: Disagree


- a
A bunch of rich, rude little jerks.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Refuse to follow IEP & give the child grief when they point out they need an accomodation



- a
Not a school for children with learning differences.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
They let the child get all the way down to failing grades, while the parents are screaming for help BEFORE they offer assistance.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
All I can say is they expect a Fish to be able to climb a tree.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Google classroom would make homework easier to turn in rather than lugging 7 separate binders and a ton of paper back and forth every day.

Not impressed with their ridiculous rules that impede a students education. The district seems to assume that every parent is independently wealthy and can afford their high priced activities at every turn. No school buses in this district. The pick up and drop off line is insanely idiotic. Rich kids don't know how to get out of a car fast. We have been in "low income" areas where the teachers were more engaged, the buildings were nicer. A cafegymatorium?? Yes really! How poor are you that you have to roll out a chafing dish to heat lunch in? Then hurry to put it away so PE can take place in the same room. Upgrade to Google classroom, stop using a paper planner, give tablets. Teach these kids how to live in the digital age.

CMJH has many expectations for their students, and their expectations are higher than most other public schools I have been to. If you're one of those students who struggles with more difficult classes, you might have some troubles with this school. If you're one of those students who are independently able to get great grades, you will do just fine at this school and will be prepared for High School. From my experiences, some of the children attending CMJH have harrassed and bullied others. Though, it is continually reminded throughout the school that bullying and harassing is not the right type of behavior. Theres also a program (first started by a student who was affected last year) that reminds 8th graders to stop bullying and harrassing 7th graders. I think it has worked very well so far. In addition, the principal was awarded a Principal of the Year award last year, which is pretty impressive since the award was out of all the Principals in the state. Theres also some pretty good classes for both 7th and 8th graders, especially the art classes. The teachers are cooperative most of the time, and the most of them are friendly and laid back. This school rocks.
