Okay, I just graduated from this school. Every year at this school has been a pain it the butt. The advanced teachers are fine although not many of them put their students in their place. It is sad when even the kids in the advanced classes have no manners. The principal doesn't keep this school under control at all. Almost none of the adults enforce the dress code, and when they do, it's on the wrong kids and outfits. The kids in the hallways are also very rude. They push, shove, and constantly bully other students, and most of the time, the teachers do NOTHING! Not only that, but I can't even count all the curse words that come from all the students. Kids also run around in ripped P.Js. I can't believe all the piercings and tattoos that I see on a daily basis. Please parents, if you are thinking about moving to the Mississinewa School District, rethink your decisions. - from a 7 year student of the Mississinewa School District
My son is a 7th grader at RJB and he has alot of problems with the band director. I also feel that some of the subjects are relying to much on my son's art skills and not teaching him more about the subject at hand. Social Studies and Science are the main two. What happened to learning important dates and people. A student will not learn something unless you make it interesting for them.
My son is an 8th grade student at RJB. He has always enjoyed the educational process and that in no different @ RJB. The teahcers are hard working and provide intersting lessons. The science department is top notch with Science Olympics. I think with there help my son will be ready for high school.
