Sad school. To get their numbers up they stop teaching the regular curriculum, which is already sub-standard, 2 weeks prior to the standardized testing and focus on showing the kids how to beat the tests. This happens several times a year. Answers are nearly spoon fed. That's how they went up to an 8 of 10 from 6 of 10 last year. Avoid if you can

The strength of TJ is great teachers and fantastic, caring, involved families! For these reasons the school has had a great reputation but in recent years it has dropped substantially. There are probably several reasons including district budget cuts but the two biggest contributors include principals who stay two years or less, and an ESL program that is not designed to succeed (thus making it attractive for principals to move on). However area families do a good job in spite of the circumstances.

This school is fantastic -- from the principal to the teachers and support staff -- My son has some minor special needs and they are more on top of this than I am-- its amazing to see them work with him and put programs in place that make his day better
