I am a parent of a child that went 3 years at ra and all i can say is thank god they are out! i would and should have drove them to ockerman middle for 3 years. All i know is myself, my husband and 10 other parents celebrated after 8th grade graduation. Teachers for the most part were great, it was just everything else. The best part was 8th graders going to boone orientation and being booed because they went to ra jones. Cheerleading, sports what a joke go to ra and then go to gray or ockerman to see a real team participate sorry tried to make it work 3 long years but after hit lists, etc. No positive here. They might be more involved or included more if would have went to another school.
I'm a student at R.A. and there seriously isn't anything wrong with this school. People say that the school doesn't care about the students but they do. Yea, their dress code is strick but their trying to help prevent problems.If R.A. Jones didn't care about the students then it wouldn't even exist because someone would've tried their best to ruin it. Please think about what I just said before you try and critsize ur school. Try being a student, teacher or a staff member at R.A. and see why they care. ~Joy P
You know what? RA is the BEST middle school around!! Many parents are involved and it's a great school.. There are so many school activites, and watchful/caring teachers. So the next time you want to talk bad about our school, you should think first.
R.A. is a middle school which has very poor teachers and staff.Every one who goes there with an AB average goes out with an F or lower.Sudents go there happy and come back upset and sad..Because they don't relly cair for there studentd if there is a problem the teachers and staff just sit arond and say deel with it they are to lazy to get up and fix it.I no that buy my childs experence..A teacher was told my child was being herassed buy a nother child but the teacher didn't cair.Its sad relly i now was infromed buy my friend they hafe to wear green gold or white polo t's and thats bs make the staff have a dress code OMG R.A. Jones needs HELP!!!!
I had a daughter that attend RA. I was very disappointed on how the whole facilty acts towards there students. I guess the world for teachers and principles that care is over. My daughter went from an AB student to a DF student. Because of bullies and no one would help her. She was told just go to the office and stay there until her next class. How in the world did this help her, I haven't got a clue. My husbend and I tried to talk to the principle and teachers. That was a joke, they talked good but never go through with what they said. So my daughter did not finish out her 8th grade year at this school.
I think R.A is a safe school. I go there and going there is one of the best Schools I ever went to. I am able to reach my fullness in a safe enviroment. The dress code might be strict but they make it so everyone can learn to their fulliest. Without clothes being a matter. I can do any extracuricular activity I want, chorus or band.The art and gym and computers and Health are top of the line classes. I'm glad I go there.
I am a teacher here at RA Jones Middle school. I am constantly amazed at how many people really don't know what happens here at RA. First, the students are not a bunch of bullies who victimize classmates. Fights happen in ALL schools. RA takes steps to see that teachers are in the hallways during class changes to watch over each child. The teachers here are caring, concerned professionals who often stay after school to help students who need it. The administration and faculty have one goal in mind - make RA a safe, caring, learning environment. I am proud to teach at RA!
'This school is awesome, there is alot of hands on activities and helpful teachers. Anyone that says bad things about this school is crazy, you come step in their shoes'
There is not alot of parent involvement in this school. Most of the students that go to this school either end up starting a fight or being the victim in a fight and the schools doesn't really care anymore. it doesn't concern them that children are being victimised in their school.
