I was very disappointed with the quality of education at this school. This school lacks discipline and the teachers do not expect very much from their students. The administration allows students to wander the halls and disrupt learning. The administration does not support the teachers and the kids rule the school. The IB program masks the real problems in the school.

Over all OK, some great teachers, some not. Some care, some do not. Teacher to student/parent could be greatly improved. Don't wait for the teachers to reach out to a parent. It will not happen.

Percy Julian is a great middle school compared to my elementary school, Mann.the academic standards are high and the teachers are really good. And my favorite teacher, Ms. Galant, is an exceptional teacher and makes learning fun.

There is a great teacher there who wants to work well with students who get spec. ed services. I want the teacher to have the resources to do the best for those students.

Julian, as in any school, has its problems. It has a weak and uninvolved administration and the ability its teaching staff is somewhat sundry-- there are a few phenomenal educators who are committed to their students, while others are completely incoherent. There is a wide achievement gap that unfortunately was only being shortened from the top down at my time there. Now, they are implementing new programs to address the issues of both the gifted and the needy. If you have a little bit of luck and are willing to work to stay on track, a solid education is available for the taking.

I used to go to this school. There were very few good teachers, the administators could have been better and more involved. The administators also could have tryed to make the teachers do a better job.They had some great art and theater programs but otherwise it needed a lot of improvement.

My son is finishing his last of three years (6 - 8). This education is good but not great. Coming from the strongest elementary schhol in town the education seems to be dummied down in order to accomodate kids from the other schools. Most of the teachers try to stimulate the kids and make learning interesting; however, its some teachers shouldn't be teaching. Administration is good and the raport among the staff is good. The student population for the most part is goods. Most kids do well in their classes and there are not many serious discipline incidents.
