This is a great school. I Feel that the older kids here take the younger ones under their wings. The biggest advice i can give you is to join a sport. That is going to make your life a who lot easier. You have great coaches in almost all your sports and great leaders on every sport. Overall this is one of the best schools i have seen.
My brother is a junior and is very involved in the school. He is on the student council, football team, track team, and is captain of the BEAT squad. I'm in the 8th grade, and is involved in the school. I'm on the dance team and earned a varsity letter. My younger sister, a 7th grader, is on the tennis and softball team. We have made great friends and learned so much. This is an awesome school!
Both of our children attended JM. Our oldest daughter did very well. She excelled academically and participated in a variety of school-related activities including swimming, National Honor Society, and Science Club. This school was not good for our second child. She also participated in swimming and diving and the theater group. She was very outgoing and naive at the same time. Rochester, in general, recently (past 8-10 years) is experiencing an influx of people from other countries. They do not seem to be acculturated into society here as they are in other parts of the country.
