My daughter has been at JMM 3 years and I couldn't be more happy. Her teachers have been excellent. I find the halls happy & friendly. All staff seems to know all the children even if they are not their teachers. They speak to the children each morning, calling them by name. The office staff is incredible and I have found the principal very capable. I believe that any parent who takes time to be involved in this school will find the same to be true. I am very glad that my daughter be at JMM for a few more years.
My 5yo son has ADHD. No one at the school has given him the appropriate care in order to ensure that he and the other children in the class get the discipline and education. The principle totally doesn't get it. She talked to my son for 20 minutes explaining why he was in trouble. His teacher suggested we medicate him! Can't wait to get him out of there.
JMM has the potential to be a great place to teach and learn, but until a fair and competent principal leads the school, the students, parents, and staff will have to put up with a second-rate learning environment.
JMM is a great school. Teachers are very helpful & she be commended. Children are treated very well & only punished when not behaving. Love the school! My daughter will be in 4th grade for 08-09 school year.
The teachers in the building are always very helpful. They go beyond what is expected for a teacher. I am confident my child is in an environment where he can excell.
The halls are unwelcoming and seem unhappy. The teachers seem streesed and uncomfortable which in turn leads to stressed children. I haven't ever been in an elementary school with so few smiling faces.
