I have noticed a change at John Deere and trust it will continue and mature. First of all, the Principal is one of the more active of any school. He is seen with students, teachers and classes taking a very pro-active role. Second, Deere has sixth graders now and in the past three years since they have arrived, there has been excellent changes seen in their maturity, dedication and comfort with other students and teachers. With a school that boasts a larger diversity population, it is good to know that the kids love the school, facilities and community. I will say this as a remainder: the key to an excellent program are quality teachers, committed parents and classroom management. Learning including Common Core is more dependent on rules and regulations within a framework of creative learning and challenge.

Let's just put it this way about John Deere, if you want your kids to swear then enroll them in John Deere. It's as simple as that. Practically all the kids who go there say the F word. My son never said it until he attended this school, he even cussed me out! then I removed him from this school & he never used that word again. This school has got to be the trashiest of all. If you look at the kids who go there you can tell that they look like there's something wrong with them & they're not all there, if you know what I mean. Trust me, you're better off home schooling your kid or have them take online classes at home, than take them to this awful school!

John Deere is a horrible school. My son went there last year & pulled him out this year. The teacher's never have time to work with the kids, all they do is yell at them. The receptionist there is extremely moody. I get the feeling that she just hates her job! Everytime you approach her, it's like walking on egg shells. John Deere also has a lot of bullies & the principal does nothing about it. The basketball coach will only let certain kids get on the team. Lots of predjudice & discrimination goes on there. I don't miss JD one bit. In my opinion JD stinks!!!!

This is a failing school look at the test scores. Poor teachers and a counselor that doesn't have time for students. They only allow the gold team students on team sports and extra projects. The blue team students are separated from the gold team students (kept on the other side of the building ) and not allowed to mingle. My child will never attend a Moline public school again ever. I will be homeschooling from now on.

i believe that john deere middle school is a very good school. they show the children how to work together and get along. they teach one on one with the children who need the help. also the counsler is ready and highly qualified to listen to and help out your children when they have problems. the principal is a vry funny and chipper person he would sit in on your class and he would help out with progects but when it comes to the dicepline then he is quite fair. we have low problems with puples doing the following, stealing, graffity, disrupting the classes, or fighting. I am very pleased with this school and very happy that i attend.
