I just graduated from John M. and I have to say it's an average school probably. I DO feel safe for the most part. when you come in the people in the office have to unlock the door for you and they don't let just anyone in. the teachers care for the most part although sometimes they cuss in their classes. they teach pretty good and the ones that don't teach good get fired. the only thing is some of them want to just sit and talk about sports or some kind of drama. there is some bullying going on. I believe in 6 grade I got pushed into a locker and I went and told the principle a few days later (I didn't want to at first cause I didn't want to be seen as a "rat") the principle told me that I should have "come and told her sooner" and to "go back to class". so she doesn't care about bullying . if the athletes get bullied yeah they care. there's probably a fight or two every month which isn't bad. overall, the teachers are good at teaching but not good people in general, except Mrs. Blanton (for middle school teachers). the students come and go so it really just depends who you're with. the school is a clean and safe place and we have a wide range of grade school sports.

This school, put shortly, sucks, I'm a student there and there is so much drama I can't even focus on anything else. There's constant drama going on in middle school. We're on summer break and there is still drama! I am convinced it is worse here than any other school so if you don't want your kid to be miserable dont send them to this school.

I have to admit when the new principal came a couple of years ago I was shocked....Her outlook on the school was much different than we were used too.....I have to give her credit.., Every child at that school has changed for the better through my eyes.., My kids are being taught way more than I ever imagined....This is an excellent school to send your children to..Especially if you are concerned about their well being as a young adult...

I went to John M from 1995 to 2004. They really provided me with the quality education that I deserved. I made a lot of friends at John M. I played on the basketball team, academic team. I think the new principal there is doing a good job of caring for the school, but I do also think that she is being way to strict. But other than that I think this is a great school to send your kids to. Plus the new gym will hopefully draw more kids to the basketball team. Someday I hope to coach the boys team there in a few years and I hope of turning the team around.
