Donovan, You can't even spell correctly. You obviously have not learned very much. I do not like the fact that the Gym is not Air Conditioned. Also the Car Rider situation is crazy. Either pave the road or start handing out Don's Car Wash vouchers. SJ is not really all that.

I hear about a LOT of bullying that goes on at this school. They have way to many kids and not enough faculty to properly watch over all of them - not saying they don't try. If would help if they would stop bussing in so many kids. Most of the teachers are great. The boys gym also doesn't have air conditioning although the girls gym does. Bottom Line - This school is way overcrowded.

I absolutely LOVE this school! The teachers make sure each of their classes meet the GLE's. They also make learning the subject easier and sometimes even fun. The faculty and staff are friendly, helpful, and very hardworking. And by the way, having to eat outside is NOT a problem! Many students actually enjoy it! S.J. Welsh is awesome, and I recommend it to any student who wants to move here. Go Colts!!

This school is not over crowed. They just built a 6th grade building for the 6th grade so the only people in the main buildings are 7th and 8th. Theres also a second story for some of the eight graders. Its really a good school. I go there everyday I know. Why would there be a courtyard with tables if the outside wasnt meant to house people? The people who bring there lunch sit outside. There is no reason for them to be in the cafeteria. They dont have to buy food. The people who buy food go to the cafeteria eat then go out side and sit down. We all eventually end up outside. I think the school having lots of kids is a good thing because you have lots to choose from.In my opinion if you go here and dont make friends somethings wrong with you.

Academic standards are high but the school is too small for the number of students it has. Some students must eat lunch outdoors because there isn't an adaquate size lunch room.
