Myself and others found that at this school in particular some teachers physically discipline and emotionally damage children. I think a visit of social services is needed! Another guardian spoke to me about this school in some instances physically and inappropriately hurting their children. From my experience I can say my child was called a Looser from his Teachers' mouth which hurt him deeply till the point he was frightened to see her the next day and he stated in front of her what she said to him and she still lied. How can a teacher be filled with so much negativity. My child was unaccounted for on the first day of school as well. Negligent and very unwelcoming staff as well. If you're disabled they discriminate and aren't military friendly. The principal, assistant principal and her office staff try to intimidate parents who find them and their staff incompetent and have factual evidence on how they operate. Terrible experience.

Joseph Martin has knowledgable caring teachers who work very hard to make sure that every student succeeds. They have a very diverse population of students ranging from special needs, ELL, economically disadvantaged, homeless, etc. It is a very challenging array of students to bring up to grade level for the over-rated CRCT Test. I find it sad that our students abilities are graded by one test, and even worse that our teachers effectiveness is judged by the results of the same one test. We've become a test society & forgotten that creativity, innovation, and social growth are much more important than a standardized test score. The administrators & teachers of JME strive to meet the many requirements put on them by the local board of education as well as the state. My son has been well prepared & pushed to reach his full potential all 4 years he has attended. I highly & confidently recommend JME to other families!

My daughter has attended this school since she was in kindergarten. I have had great experiences with this school up until last year.I felt the teacher was not very friendly to her and I almost took her out of the school. Every day she would come home and tell me how she treated my baby. I was not very fund of this 2nd grade teacher,Hopefully this year will be better. I do recommend this school to other parents.

teachers are not as involved with the parents as I think that they should be. We moved here not that long ago, where we came from the teachers worked one on one with the parents of each child and they were friendly, warm and welcoming. I definately do not feel as comfortable here as I did at the kid's old school. I was so comfortable, I volunteered in classrooms once a week, was classroom Mom, put together class events, chaperoned every field trip and helped with festivals and fund raising. I just do not feel that welcome here.

My daugter has attended Joseph Martin since the 1st grade. She will be going to Middle school next year. I must say that this school has some of the best teachers and faculty you will ever want to meet. I absolutely love this school and wish it was K-8. My youngest is still there in 1st grade. I hope she has the same wonderful teachers my oldest child had. Awesome!

I'm very happy with this school. A huge change from the one my son attended last year. His teacher is great! My son loves it, says it's fun, and is excelling in all academics. The teachers and staff encourage parent involvment and seem enthusiasic about their jobs, which rubs off on the attitudes of the students. A great place to learn, grow, and be a kid!

I would like to say that I have had one child go to this school and move on to a local middle school and I have one child who still attends Joseph Martin. They have excellent teachers at this school (at all levels). Most of the teachers are dedicated to the students and giving a high value education. They are really motivated and have high competition with regards to educating the children. Of the individual problems (that occur when you have children), I have to say, from the Principal to the Teacher, that the response was great. They have an open door policy that I love as a parent. I have had to be there on several accounts and found that any concerns were address properly. The children are focused on grades, reading points and general learning which impressed me.

My child attended Joseph Martin Elementary for the '04-'05 school session. This school offered gifted classes for those children who need a more challenging education. My 5th grader had 3 teachers who offered creative assignments to both challenge and interest my child. This school also has the accelerated readers program. Music was offered through either joining the chorus or playing the recorder. I know sports was available, but my daughter didn't participate. I don't recall what was offered. I recommend this as a good school.
