To the previous comment. The corner of Ridge and McEvilly. Same school. Don't be so na ve and ignorant. ISAT's don't mean a thing. Just because you have a high test score doesn't mean you are educated.

I have went to this school for the past few two years and I am apart of the 2014 graduating class. I have had so amazing times at this school. Many awesome teachers which get me through the day. Though some of the teachers are not the most affective I have leared alot in this school and overall district and my grades, ISATs, and test scores definitley prove it. After reading some of the other comments I believe they must be talking about a differnt school.

Cannot wait to get out of this district. Academics are not effective. Leadership too mean. Lack of parent/upper staff communication. didn't even call me when my son was assaulted! Deplorable!

This is a very elegant junior high. To all those parents who dont like it you need a reality check. My child just started going here. She enjoys it very much the kids are very helping. They have very good sports teams and they have fin coaches. The teacher seem very expericenced and helping. My childs grades have gotten so much better since she has been here. She has into more curriculm activitys. They have a awesome band director and great new principle. There gym uniforms are much better than other schools i have seen from my neices and nephews, they actually has silky shorts and nice plain white tops anyway they are just getting sweaty. They also make us pay a lil fee the textbooks because they need help to pay for them and since are child is using them i think it seems reasonable. Amazing junior high.

I actually was a student at this school for 2 years. Having had been able to compare it to my other school, I'd say that this one is way better. The current principal Mr Skogsberg, is great. A little harsh sometimes, but his heart is in the right place. The displicine is good as well as the education, they challenge and except you to try your hardest to exceeded. They are all about raising the bar. And as for the gym uniforms, they are like any other uniforms, you sweat and run in them and yeah they may not be petty but they surve there purpose. As for the other issue, the one about students coming home crying, I'll say this, yes kids are mean, but thats standard. Children have to learn how to handle and interact with each other.

I would never send another child here. This is a terrible school. My child came home almost everyday crying because the kids and teachers were so mean to her. Just ask yourself would you want your child to suffer three years of junior high like this? Thank you

All of our children attended and graduated from Minooka Junior High School. With each passing year, the quality of our educational experience diminished. I do not believe they are hiring quality teachers nor do they in-service the teachers to make them better. The school believes it is a dumb farming community and that is the level of the education to which they strive. Both students and parents are treated as though they are an imposition by the staff. Finally, the school has huge growth issues and class sizes are way too big. From academics to athletics, communication to parent participation, Minooka Junior High School is just plain weak.

This district is a little more behind acedemically then our previous district 204. This school currently has more than 900 students. Nearly twice as many as the year before. Each student still has their own space and an addition is currently being added. The extracurricular activities are developing slowly with the influx of many new students. There is no separate girls and boys soccer and it is not divided by grade levels. It is simply an A team and B team. The band director is great with new students taking up a new instrument due to the fact that there is no orchestra. All in all I think this school is about average. Nothing truly special or extra to mention.

The principle of this is way too strict. He makes the children sit in alphabetical order for lunch. It's lunch for goodness sakes. Also if you want a good Christian Education for your children Don't send them to MJHS. Next year all the best teachers retire so... Do I really need to finish? Harder than most schools. Makes children wear ugly gym uniforms. Trying to find a good private school. Make you pay for textbooks you can't keep. Pay again if the are accidentaly lost, or stolen. Definently not worth my money... or yours.
