Teachers are very rude and disrespectful to the students. The teacher-parent relationship are at zero. The teachers nor the principal return calls or communication. I tried contacting the principal on several different occasions pertaining to my child and no response. I sub teacher criticized my daughter because her name is Lovely, telling her that she's not Lovely. The teacher sent her out of class because my daughter stated to the teacher, "what Adult says that to a child?" The teachers here are lowing the student self esteem and the desire to learn.
Jean Ribault Middle School supposed to have a good band and they teach you how to speak Chinese instead of the usual Spanish language. It is in a nice neighborhood and supposed to be a good school. My daughter was accepted into the magnet Early High School program. She is going to the 8th grade and my son is going into the 7th grade.
I had two sons that attended the school; one was in 6th grade, the other in 8th grade. From my feeling there was not that much extracurricular activites, except the team up after schhol program which my sons enjoyed. My 6th grader had excellent teachers who were very interested in his education. I would go sit in on his classes every once in a while and they had no problem, they welcomed my being there. On the other hand, whenever I sat in on my 8th grader's classes, the teacher's seemed genuine but at times, they could not control the class with it being all boys. I did agree with the concept of boys and girls attending classes seperately.
