My two girls transferred to this district last year from another area school. Right off the bat, the curriculum seemed a year behind. They ended up repeating most of the coursework they'd done the year prior in the other district. Class sizes are large, facilities and classrooms are small. Many teachers seem inexperienced and students that are quick to catch on are left bored with nothing to challenge them. Many of the parent related activities such as kindergarten orientation are done during a short window early in the day, making it difficult for working parents to participate. In addition, security at this school seems lax.

I have sent two kids through J.L. Mudd. We are very happy with the education they received. They have a healthy mix of older and younger teachers, which I think is important.

Great School! Great Staff! Geared toward helping your child excel no matter how much or how little help they need. They offer more for those kids who "get it" right away and aren't held back by those needing more help.

My daughter is currently attending J. L. Mudd and is enjoying it very much. Her teacher, Mrs. B., is WONDERFUL and is doing great things with her students. My daughter came in and was somewhat advanced for her age but Mrs. B. has kept her engaged and helped her to do even more within the classroom. Communication between parent and school is excellent and I feel that she is getting a good education.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
