Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

There are a few good ones who seem to genuinely care. I'd say its about 1/2.

Amount of homework: no rating

Dont know, teachers dont all keep up on online assignment listings so if your child does not bring work home, you usually are unaware until its too late


Develops character: Neutral

Kind of, the main issue with JMS is that they are attempting to build self-reliance and responsibility. However it is brought to the extreme that it creates an environment where the Principal and the lazy teachers simply remain hands off and do not communicate. So in essence, the children and parents are 100% responsible, teachers and Principal 0%.

Principal Hartey is pretty lazy. Any time there are issues with a teacher he only defends and makes excuses, never address the issues.

My children loved attending JMS. I found it to be a positive, fun, safe learning environment.

6th grader so we are new. 1 or 2 good teachers in the Sigma House but the rest are either too new or too lazy. I try to contact them to find out what we can do at home to help with no reply or eye rolls. They really do not seem to want to work with child or parents or go the extra mile. Do they even want the kids to do well? Idk.

Amount of homework: Disagree

Nothing comes home unless you ask for it multiple times....NEVER. Then the eyes start to roll as they do not like parents who care here.
