This school is OK. The teachers are very biased. And the vice principal straight up decides upon conflicts using color of skin. I am an average indian student, and I have been misjudged by my gym and english teacher.

TJ Teachers can be extremely helpful. The new Administration and Superintendent are soooo focused on TESTING, the teachers don't get to "teach" much. The principal is just focused on testing, doesn't leave her office much. Unless it's to discipline, or intimidate students, staff, and parents. She has very little interaction with others, and the vice-principal is just...."there." Things need to change.

TJMS principal refused to support the school soccer team coach and the players when WWMS soccer coach made false allegations of roughing the players against the TJMS soccer team after TJMS beat WWMS first time in many years. In addition, the principal also disciplined the soccer team by suspending some of the players for the rest of the season. Because of that TJMS ended up losing their remaining games. Is this how a principal should support her own soccer team? What a sports friendly person she is!

I hated this school so much. I got bullied by the girls at my lunch table because guess what? You have assigned seating at lunch and they call you up by table. So if your table is called last you only get 5 minutes to eat. Not even joking about the time. The teachers were okay but I didn't really understand what they were teaching. The only teacher's that were really nice were the gym teachers and my chorus teacher. The chorus teacher was the best! The school is confusing with the the whole AB day thing. Overall, this school stinks.

When I was there last year I was the scapegoat for others misdoings and when I discussed it with the "Friendly" teachers and principal they ignored me and in future instances they became biased in every situation following our discussion. Not only this but their were many fights making it an unsafe learning environment also I personally saw several students with knives when this was reported not only by me but by several other students and nothing was done about it. also I witnessed certain teachers observe other students disobeying many of the rules and not say or do anything about it. Overall i would rate this school a 1 out of 10 due to the repeated infractions of the rules that i have personally witnessed. This makes me overjoyed to say that I am no longer attending this school.

It's my first year here at TJ, and I got a warm welcome! My teachers are all really nice! Even though when I came to this school, I knew only 1/4 of the school, I made new friends easily! No matter if they went to Lincoln, Washington, Lindeneau, or John Marshall with me, we all got along and became one whole big group of friends! I wonder how my next 2 years here are going to be like...

Most of the teachers are outstanding. The music program is great and there is a sports program. Other extracurricular activities are lacking. No real year book which is a disappointment. Needs more school spirit.

The teaching staff is rather new and in a transforming stage, as of 2004. Most teachers are very easy to get in touch with as well as available for extra help.
