I have been going to JTMS for three years now and I just can NOT wait to get out. First off the teachers teach us absolutly nothing and treat my fellow classmates and I like dogs. The principals don't do crap, all they do is give you a detention or suspension; sometimes it's for nothing. The school has no respect for the children, and we have feelings just like them. The only thing I have learned from this school is to NEVER COME BACK!!!

My daughter is currently in the 8th grade and I cant wait until shes out of this school and this district. The principals are very unhelpful, the school is way to eager to hand out detentions and suspensions for the smallest of offenses.They are more focused on rules then actual teaching in this school. They provide no extra help during or after school.

As a parent who has experienced the JTMS for the past three years, I have absolutely nothing nice to say about the way the Middle School is run! I thank God every night that my child will be out of the Jefferson school system next year! Thanks for nothing!

I have a seventh grader who needs extra help and have found most of the staff rather insensitive. It appears that unless a child is classified, there is very little the teachers are willing to do. The team reports that they will implement various classroom modifications, but these modifications frequently are not carried out. Speaking to administration and the child study team does little good, as they simply recite what they are obligated to do by law. If your child is not a genious or classified, there is a good chance of being left in the dust in this school.

I have a 6th grader in the middle school currently, and can only speak from my own experience as a parent of a child with behavior problems due to a medical condition. I am in contact with the school constantly and am very involved in my son's academic life at the middle school. I do not feel that teachers in our school, or any other, are trained in the handling of behavior issues, nor do they have any desire to be informed. There are many children with true medical problems that display themselves in bad behavior. Educators need to be understanding and informed, and I do not see that here. Though, I do see alot of zeros, detentions, in school suspension, and refusal of extra help.

I find that the 'team' situation is a bad one. All the teams are supposed to be the same. That is so far from the truth. My child had alot more work then the other teams and was graded on material that wasn't even taught yet! It is very political here. If you know someone in the school system, make a call and your child will get on the 'good' team. It's really not fair to everyone else.

I have a child in the middle school. I hear so much about kids on drugs there. I think the teachers and staff only focus on the kids with good grades and the others dont matter. They are detention happy. I think teachers need stress evaluations. Its not always the kids. You can make kids unhappy that way. Oh well nothing will be done, can't wait to move from Jefferson, its very political here!
