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.
TJ is a great school to go to and so much fun! The teachers are nice and very helpful. Over all this school rocks!
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.
this school is amazing, i have only been here for 2 years since i was a new student last year and everyone was nice. the teachers are amazing. they would help you in anything.
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...
Amazing school with great a great music program, sports pragram, and clubs. Outsatanding number of school spirt and not a single strand of bulling. Plus the most fun and creative yet stirct teachers. This is my third year here and I dont want to leave it.
this school is really fun!!! the teachers are mad cool!! and year books are really nice!=] this school is rather poor though needs more activeites though like other schools. but anways this school is mad fun like the class trips and stuff=]*****
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.
i think the school is okay! the teachers are good and the food is good. overall it is average. the extracurricular activities are poor. there should be more activites.
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.
