My child has had a great experience at this school. It is academically challenging and the arts programs are strong as well. The orchestra teacher, Mr. Taperek, is wonderful. He is very dedicated to the kids. Several students made it into the all-county orchestra this year and a few of them made it into the Western Regional orchestra. We are very excited about being in the new school building next year!
Congratulations JMA on hosting your International Fair! The campus was crowded with students, parents, and the community. All enjoyed how your team went "over the top" to make this a great event. We enjoyed learning about other cultures, sampling foods, watching dances, and playing games. We definitely left with having more respect for others and compassion for diversity among all.
I like the IB program in this school and the focus on differentiated learning for kids. I am impressed with the depth of subjects covered using projects. My son is also utilizing the science olympiad programs to learn out of curriculum subjects and to apply his creativity in building working models. The science olympiad events at the regional and state levels are great experiences.
Mrs. Richardson is rude and arrogant. She doesn't know her students and no matter how you visit, she doesn't know the parents. She doesn't know what is going on in her school or her classrooms. These teachers doesn't want to be there, they only want a job and a paycheck. I can email teachers about my child and won't get a reply for days! I have never experienced this in my life!
