I honestly couldn't see myself teaching anywhere else in Guilford County! I truly love my job due to the marvelous students, dedicated parents, and wonderful staff/colleagues. While parent involvement is low, those parents that are involved are 110% dedicated to the advancement of our school. We have made adequate growth in reading & math for since I have taught at JMS (2006). There's definitely no place like it!

I love this school because its a great place to work. The students are worth so much to me and deserve to have the world given to them so they know people believe in them. The school is full of dedicated staff who do there best to ensure every student has the best education possible through a multitude of activities. The school has become a safe haven to many, and a place where children can learn to the best of their ability and not feel insecure about their learning.

I teach at this school and it is a wonderful place for children. The staff is some of the best I have ever seen. they are very well educated and they care about their students. There is not a lot of parent involement but the school has recently met all state requirements and standards.

This school is terrible. They cannot keep teachers for any amount of time. There is almost no parent involvement. They have year after year failed to meet state and federal requirements.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
