Jordan Middle School has been a positive place for all of my children. We are very excited for the complete renovation of the middle school as well as the new adjoining community center. I appreciate the honors classes that have been implemented in the past two years. It has really prepared them for the rigor of our high school. They run a true middle school and have an advisory period everyday where the students do activities such as character building, class bonding activities, and charitable events. There is a strong parent presence at JMS and they have a very active PTA organization! I love that all the schools in Jordan are in a campus style. Makes it easy for my kids to meet with their brothers if needed. Finally, the leadership, under the direction of our new Superintendent, in our district has improved tremendously in the past year. Excited to see what comes next!

Poor quality across the board- teachers, staff, school board. The latter has improved due to new blood, but simply too much to tackle to make any big differences in a reasonable amount of time. Teachers are lazy, not the best role models. Looking to sell and leave this district- things haven't changed much here in 30 yrs. Not a progressive school or town.

poor leadership, only a handful of teachers care about you and your grades, much harassment and nothing done about it even though they say they do, they don't. School and staff could use a make over.

For the most part the teachers in Jordan Middle School provide high expectations and strive for student achievement. Just like any school, there are a handful of teachers that seem to be "employed" only during clock time. However, I have found that the Principal does address parent concerns and also wants what is best for the students. I am happy to have had my children attend. I am especially grateful that in light of a traumatic event last spring, the staff took the high road and helped without asking for acknowledgement. That says a lot about overall character!

Overall not a good school, in my opinion most of the teachers don't care and won't meet after school. I was told by one teacher that she only works until 3:15 and won't meet after that. Most people work longer. The school does not really address bully and harrassment issues and I do not believe that they have stong leadership and the academic programs are not great.

I am very dissatisfied with Jordan Schools- This school in particular allows bullying, has students that are so harrassed they change to another district.They seem to discourage parent involvement by their actions. And none of the teachers seem to challenge the kids to exceed expectations.

Same issue as parent above - my daughter pulls in c's and d's and then steps it up towards the end and relies on the unused hall passes to bring her grades to a B- or C. The kids even talk about 'the teachers that do this and how to play the system' Not real impressed with the district as a whole. The teachers are not 'teachers' they try to be the 'friend' in a middle school environment- the kids need more structure- the teachers tend to share to much personal information that does not belond in the classroom

The one problem I have with this school is that the kids are given lots of opportunities to bring the grades up- extra credit may mean brining in a box of tissues or unused hall passes. This does not teach the children responsibility and accountability. My child takes full advantage of these opportunities and skims by every quarter. Real life will not be so leniant
