MJH is a great school! How do I know, I went to school there. Now every school has flaws, but MJH is better than some parents think. The facilities need to be improved and so does cafeteria food. But the teachers, the principal, and the students are great. Every student at MJH can have an A or B average if they try. My experience at MJH is one I'll never forget. If MJH is still open in the future, I'll have no problem sending my kids or anyone elses.

I enrolled my honor student here two years ago,with the thoughts that his grades would suffer a small amount due to changing schools.In my wildest dreams I never expected that this change would cause my son to go from A's and B's,to failing a grade and hating the thought of going to school.My son enjoyed school before enrolling in MJH. The main problem he seems to have is the disruptive influences from the overage pupils who have no desire whatsoever to learn.I've been to more teacher conferances in two years than the first five of his previous years.It has gotten so out of hand that the 7th grade classes had to be seperated, with the girls in one class and boys in another,to protect the girls from the unwanted attentions of the overage boys.The turnover rate of 7th grade teachers is also an issue of concern.

Martin Junior High has a great school performance score-108(I think)I feel that sometimes parents expect our schools to take all the responsibility for their children. The teaching I have observed with the kids is awesome-I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving.I think parents need to support the schools and not to believe everything they hear from their child or their neighbor.Great job MJH.

My child recently enrolled at MJH. I want to be supportive of the schooland my child, however, it is my belief that the population of overaged students enrolled have a negative affect on my childs success. A student who attends MJH and is pregnant. My child references this childs pregnancy frequently. Discipline problems and negative peer pressure are areas if deep concern. The principal and teachers show concern but seem to have no solutions to the problems they face daily. Students have little respect for them and my child is picking up a negative attitude towards her role as a student. There is little opportunity for positive reenforcement due to such a large population of negative impacts of overaged problem children in the class and at the school.Junior high years are impressionable years for children.Teacher burnout is heavy with behavior problems academic success is at risk to all children.
