We specifically chose this school for our daughter. We intentionally moved out of the Mabry/Lassiter zone (after 12 years and sending 1 daughter through those ranks) and into the Daniell/Sprayberry zone. MANY people have questioned our decision to move into what is considered by most a "lesser" school. And they're right! Less clique-ish, less elitist, less judgmental, less materialistic, less exclusionary. MORE accepting of cultural differences, more acknowledgement and appreciation of individuality, more inclusive, more culturally diverse, more real world, more designed to operate like a high school environment, more opportunity to explore alternatives to college track, more hands on STEM opportunities - have you ever watched a 3-D printer do it's magic? - more opportunities for self-described nerds to feel at home. Principal Nelson and every single teacher or counselor we've encountered have ALL been extraordinarily helpful in helping us assimilate our IEP kid into our newly chosen "tribe". We couldn't be more proud of this school, this administration and this tribe of teachers. So happy we made the choice to give our daughter the opportunity to be accepted just as she is - geek and all!

My family is pleased with JJ Daniell MS. I have an 8th grader and a 6th grader at the school currently. They both have had exceptional experience at the School. They have had an opportunity to take Advanced Classes and have excelled. The administration is tops and Mr. Nelson, school Principal, is dynamic and outstanding. We have had a wonderful three years with my 8th grader and I am sure my 6th grader will follow in that path. Go to the school speak to the parents, kids, PTSA and the administration you will me amazed.

Daniell has provided a wonderful learning environment for my 7th-grade daughter. We came from a private school environment that was solid academically, but could not address social development for any of its students. The teaching staff at Daniell have been exactly what we were looking for, and kudos to the principal for setting the tone for his school. His hands on involvement shows leadership by example. As for the reviewers who have experienced bullying, we had that at our very expensive private school, too. When we started to experience that here at Daniell, we immediately met with the administration to document the problems. All has been resolved to our satisfaction, so maybe the previous reviewers made a positive impact on the policies.

Mr.Nelson is a great PRINCIPLE and i been a student in daniell seens 6th grade so i been there for 3 years and there's nothing wrong with the school , they have AMAZING teacher that will help you with anything IF your child will ask them , and if your child did good in elementary but some reason make mad grades in middle school its problem because your child not ask FOR HELP .So DON'T blame the school or tell people to not send your child there because that not right.To be honest there been i instant because of drugs but now the jj daniell staff work so hard to clean up the school and there's no more in the school and its CLEAN and SAFE for your child to go JJ Daniell rating should be a 8 or 9 .

My son just finished his 6th grade year at Daniell. After hearing so much about the school's difficult history, I began attending School Council meetings (open to the public) before he even started there! I was very involved with the PTSA and established open communication with his teachers. He had a GREAT year at Daniell! His teachers were, for the most part, responsive and encouraging. It is middle school -- a hard age to be and a hard age to teach, no matter what school. All middle schoolers are exposed to bad language and bad choices; kids with good character know what choices to make for themselves. The issues we had we would have had at any other public middle school; we found the administration to be accessible and largely responsive. Our family truly appreciates the efforts made by the good teachers and staff at Daniell and we look forward to five more years together.

My experience at this school has been horrible. My son was a straight A student for his entire elementary years. After 2 months of attending Daniell, there was a significant change in his grades. My son's entire year at Daniell, he was subjected to bullying. Violent bullying and psychological. The teachers and admin were not able to do anything. My son was not in a safe learning environment at all. Because of the bullying that is "allowed" at this school, I now have to go out of my way to drive my son to school 20 minutes away. The answer the admin gave me at the end of the year ..."sorry this is happening to you". They allow the bullies to win. I absolutely am disappointed in this school and district in the handling of the bully situations. They are "no place for hate" school. What a joke that is!!

My experience with Daniell Middle School has been horrible for the last 2 years that I've had my kids enrolled there. The school is always having to be checked for drugs, by the canine unit for one. And my oldest daughter started picking up mouthy habits from the other kids there, after seeing how they talk to and disrespect the adults there. And my middle daughter has been victim to violent bullying, and harrasment for 2 years, at school, on the bus, and walking home from the bus. It is so bad that I have to constantly involve the police, because the Adminstration there, lack either compassion or knowhow, to resolve the sittuation. If you can avoid it, I would advise not sending your child to this school.

As a parent of an 8th grader at Daniell have been so blessed to have sent my child here. The teachers and staff are very caring and encouraging torwards their students. I have been thrilled of the success of my child during the last 3 years. I feel confident that my child will be able to go on to high school and face the challenges ahead because Daniell has prepared us. Any parent can be proud to send their student here. The principal is amazing. I can not say enough about everyone there. We will miss being there next year.

I think J.J. Daniel is a wonderful school I go there and everyone is so nice and cheerful they make you feel welcome! And I am also in the band program and I think the band directors think the 6th grade band is the best because they gave us this very challenging music and we learned it in about 2 to 3 days, and they challened and we succeded

this is a wonderful school. I have had 2 children move on and 2 still enrolled. The teachers work very hard to bring variety in their education. They have an awesome music program with chorus, orchestra and band. They have an exceptional drama program as well. Several activities for your child to enjoy. All of my children were honor roll students and the learning was rich and full. Any problems or concerns I had with student learning was handled immediately by teachers and counselor. The group of teachers really care about your child.
